Hoskinson has extensive experience in the cryptocurrency space, both as a developer and as an entrepreneur. This experiences founding Invictus Innovations, establishing the Cryptocurrency Research Group, being the founding chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation’s Education Committee and a director of the Bitcoin Education Project.
