Ethereum (ETH) co-founder Anthony Di Iorio says he sees potential in the future of both Cardano (ADA) and Polkadot (DOT)
Ethereum (ETH) co-founder Anthony Di Iorio said he sees potential in the future of both Cardano (ADA) and Polkadot (DOT).
Di Iorio joined the Ethereum development team shortly after meeting with Ethereum Founder Vitalik Buterin at an organized Bitcoin (BTC) conference in 2012. After his time at Ethereum, De Iorio left to found Decentral , a Toronto-based blockchain company. In a recent interview with Anthony Pompliano, when asked about the current crypto portfolio structure, Di Iorio explained his investments and why he sees potential in Polkadot and Cardano.
“Now I’m back to some simplicity. I’m on a number of different projects, but most of my work is on top projects. I’m a big fan of Polkadot, a big fan of Cardano. Let’s just say I’m a big fan of Charles. You know, it’s about taking some different approaches to the way you do things, a lot more on the academic side of what you do, and putting things forward. Real big fan of Gavin Wood.”
Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson co-founded Ethereum with Di Iorio, Vitalik Buterin and current Polkadot CEO Gavin Wood in December 2013.
“I’ve known these guys from their days at Ethereum – and knowing their drive and their competitiveness and intelligence – I’ve been able to see these projects over the past few years and know they can get where they’re coming from. ”
As for other cryptocurrencies, Di Iorio wants to keep things simple and invest in bigger projects:
“I’m mainly on the first few things, Ether, Bitcoin, Cardano, Polkadot. I like Cosmos. And there are a few more, but I’m not getting lost in all DeFi ( decentralized finance ). I just think there is not enough time, not enough energy. It’s a full time job to run a lot of this kind of stuff and keep it on top of everything else, so over the last few years I’ve simplified my life a bit.”
