Since Bitcoin has no CEO, but an anonymous creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, virtually all the CEOs of cryptographic projects raise solidarity in its support, for seemingly giving the people of the world the best alternative to banks.
The CEO of Cardano (ADA), Charles Hoskinson recently came out to express his gratitude for the decentralized standard set by Bitcoin a decade ago.

He said, “Happy Birthday Bitcoin. Thank you for changing the world. And to everyone who’s been part of this revolution, thank you for changing my world. Here’s to another amazing decade.”
