Simmons explains why he hodls ADA

Gene Simmons has tweeted that the reason he holds Cardano's ADA is because of Charles Hoskinson, the IOHK founder (IOHK is the company that developed Cardano) and co-creator of Ethereum, together with Vitalik Buterin and Joseph Lubin.

He left Ethereum in 2014 to launch Cardano three years later.
