Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of Input Output Global, founder of Cardano, and co-founder of Ethereum, has announced that he made a $20 million donation to launch the Hoskinson Center for Formal Mathematics at Carnegie Mellon University—a private research university located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
On Sept. 22, Hoskinson tweeted that he was invited to make an announcement of the opening of the Center for Formal Mathematics named after him. The goal of donating $20 million and launching the new research center is to get the language of math rewritten.
