AMA With Romain Pellerin of Cardano
May 7, 2021 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm CDT
The Houston Blockchain Alliance is proud to present Romain Pellerin, CTO of IOHK, parent of the Cardano blockchain, home of the ADA coin. Romain is also one of the founding members of the HBA.
He will be in conversation with HBA advisor Manolo Sánchez, ex-CEO of BBVA Compass.
Romain Pellerin has a PhD in distributed computing from the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers and Télécom SudParis. He has founded three start-ups since 2008, at which he held both chief executive and chief technology officer positions. Since 2017, Romain has built blockchain-based products for clients, including a major international bank, and released open-source projects to help developers create durable blockchain systems. A key part of this work has been Romain’s focus on reducing complexity and cutting costs by encouraging the adoption of public blockchains, so lowering the barrier to entry for companies. Romain joined IOHK in 2020.
Manolo Sánchez is ex-CEO of BBVA Compass, where he grew BBVA’s subsidiary in the US from 2k to 10k employees and from $3bn to $100bn in assets.
