The CEO of IOHK, Charles Hoskinson, who is also the creator of the third-generation blockchain project, Cardano (ADA), has shown interest in creating SouljaCoin for the famous rapper Soulja Boy.
This came about after the famous rapper, who has lately been showcasing a stern interest in the crypto world, asked whoever could help him create SouljaCoin to contact him.
