Early Life

Anthony Di Iorio attended Brebeuf College School and Ryerson University, both in Toronto, Ontario. He studied Marketing at Ryerson University and graduated in 1998. After school, he became involved in the family Patio-door business and was also running a geothermal drilling firm. He became worried when he noticed that the financial crisis was decimating the real estate industry, Due to this, he decided to study Economics to find out what the real problem was. He was studying an alternative way of viewing Economics and he began to understand the true concept of money and how it really worked.

Blockchain Technology Career

Anthony got the concept of Bitcoin from the very beginning and did not hesitate to involve himself immensely in Bitcoin. In the year 2012, Anthony started a group called Toronto Bitcoin Meetup, in order to bring minds together. It was in this group that he first met Ethereum’s founder, Russian-Canadian, Vitalik Buterin.

He also founded Bitcoin Alliance of Canada in 2013, which raises awareness of Bitcoin among Canadian consumers, merchants, regulators, and policymakers. He launched the first in-browser Bitcoin wallet, KryptoKit Initially, he was very cynical when it came to various blockchains, but he became very big on crypto start-ups and never hesitated to invest in start-ups that have the potential to become big in the future. He invests in these start-up at their earliest stages and leaves when the start-up is beginning to grow, to invest in another start-up that shows potential.


In 2014, Anthony co-founded Ethereum, a decentralized platform that runs on smart contracts. Ethereum is a whole network that has its own internet browser, coding language, and payment system. It is important to note that the system enables its users to create decentralized applications on Ethereum’s blockchain.

In 2013, a white paper was released and circulated in 2013. Anthony Di Iorio was its first reader. The project was later announced in 2014, with the core team consisting of Vitalik Buterin, Anthony Di Iorio, Mihai Alisie, Charles Hoskinson, Joe Lubin, and Gavin Wood. Anthony dedicated his funds and full attention to make the Ethereum project grow. A few months later, the team held a crowd sale of Ether, the native token of Ethereum, to fund the development.

Ethereum has always been compared to Bitcoin, with a number of people believing that there are strong similarities when it comes to Ethereum and Bitcoin. The two, however, are different projects with different aims. Ethereum is more of a multi-purpose platform with its digital currency, Ether, being a component of its smart contract platforms, while Bitcoin is a mainly a cryptocurrency that has been stable and successful. On the cryptocurrency level, Bitcoin’s average mining time is 10 minutes, while Ethereum’s is 12 seconds, making it exponentially faster than Bitcoin.

Ethereum is the best altcoin and one of the best cryptocurrencies in the world. It is the basis for a great majority of the advancements in the crypto space.
