Cardano Founder Denies Working For Ripple, Says People Confuse Him With Vitalik

Charles Hoskinson, Cardano founder, has taken to Twitter to address a misconception making the rounds within the cryptocurrency community. Some crypto enthusiasts recently alleged that Hoskinson worked with Ripple as an intern, which he denied and stated that he never worked for them in any capacity. He further affirmed that people are confusing him with Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin, who allegedly worked with the California-based tech company as an intern in mid-2013. However, Buterin missed the opportunity to work with Ripple due to visa-related issues. The development stirred reactions from crypto community members, with some joking and others encouraging Hoskinson to focus on building Cardano.
