Cardano Founder Charles Hoskinson took to the X platform to welcome Sean Ford, the new CEO of Input Output Global’s new stablecoin venture.
Sean Ford’s appointment is complemented by the onboarding of David Markley as the COO of the yet-to-be-named stablecoin venture. The appointments will see the introduction of the next generation of stablecoins powered by the Cardano protocol.

The Cardano Stablecoin Mission
Since the introduction of its smart contract capabilities, Cardano has strived to introduce new products and services.

According to the Cardano founder, the race to develop the “mechanism of algorithmic stability” started in 2013, with the introduction of BitShares. In the past decade, Hoskinson’s ventures have bootstrapped the emergence of DJED, launched earlier this year.
Despite these strides, Hoskinson believes there’s more to do. His beliefs hinge on the fact that, based on their combined experiences, Sean Ford and David Markley form the perfect leadership to pilot the stablecoin design push. Before joining IOG, Sean served as the COO and CEO of the Algorand Foundation and Markley led the Business development team for the Cardano rival.
With their appointments effective immediately, their focus will transcend just the Cardano ecosystem as Sean confirmed plans to collaborate with other industry players.
Doubling down on this stablecoin venture confirms earlier claims by Charles Hoskinson that Cardano has no abandoned project as some critics in the community alleges. While the protocol’s native token maintains a poor outlook per a recent classification by CoinMarketCap, this new announcement underscores IOG’s focus to expand its ecosystem.
There is no defined roadmap that reveals when the new stablecoin venture will launch a product. However, Charles Hoskinson expressed optimism on its potentials, riding on the “interoperability, security, and proper governance” structure in place in the Cardano ecosystem.
The Need for Functional Stablecoins
Despite the multifaceted focus of the stablecoin venture, Hoskinson’s focus on algorithmic stability is important. Judging by the implosion of TerraUSD (USTC), building successful alternatives remain a milestone yet to hit mainstream adoption.
The emergence of DJED has showcased the possibilities of this innovation and the optimism remains high now that Sean and Markley are at the helm of affairs.
