About IOHK
In 2015 IOHK founders, Charles Hoskinson and Jeremy Wood, set out to cause cascading disruption, committed to using peer-to-peer innovations to provide financial services to the three billion people who don’t have them. They knew back then that they had to first create a place that was designed to enable such unprecedented ambition. A place where incredibly talented individuals are actually empowered to put their best work into the hands of millions of people to build on and explore new ways of working together. As IOHK continues to grow, we hope that these principles will serve each new person joining our ranks.

Some projects that we've recently completed or are working on:

IOHK | A vision for blockchain in Africa
Cardano Whiteboard: Overview with Charles Hoskinson
IOHK | Cardano Testnets. May 2018
