Setting the record straight about Anthony Diiorio’s name

There’s a lot of confusion surrounding the correct spelling and pronunciation of my name. So I’d like to take the time to settle this once and for all. It’s Anthony Diiorio.

As in, Anthony Diiorio, co-founder of Ethereum. And Anthony Diiorio, Founder and CEO of Decentral and Jaxx. Anthony Diiorio, huge fan of Office Space and Half BakedBut if you do a quick search online, you’ll find my name spelled all kinds of different ways. Some are pretty creative. Most are inaccurate. 

The problem stems from sans-serif, which is the most prevalent type of font for text displayed on a computer or mobile screen. Interestingly, the term ‘sans serif’ is French for ‘without uncertainty.’ And yet, there are two letters that, when displayed in typical sans-serif mode, are identical: capital ‘I’ and lowercase ‘L.’ This is the main source of uncertainty around the proper spelling of my last name.

modern sans serif font letters metal
Sans serif does not have extending features (called ‘serifs’) at the end of strokes

You see, the original spelling is Di Iorio, which contains a capital ‘I,’ which is almost always mistaken for an ‘L.’

I’ve been at conferences where I’ve been introduced as ‘DiLorio.’ In fact, a lot of people know me as ‘DiLorio’ if they’ve only ever seen my name in print. It’s confusing and it’s not accurate.

So, for the record, it is spelled Anthony Diiorio.

While we’re at it, let’s discuss how it’s pronounced, which is actually the easy part.

Anthony Diiorio wants to clear up the confusion surrounding his last name

It rhymes with Oreo. Yes, as in Oreo cookie. Think of it like ‘dee plus Oreo.’ Diiorio.

Getting this right is key. For myself, personally, as well as for Decentral, the company, and all of our other properties and partners. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Sincerely, Anthony Diiorio

“A person’s name is one of the very few things someone truly owns. Setting the record straight on Anthony’s name is important for the company’s sake, and also to properly anecdote the vital contributions he has already made to the blockchain and crypto industry, in addition to his vision to empower people to be in control of their lives.” – Jay Dingwall, Branding expert & CEO of Famous Folks

Decentral Hosts One-of-a-Kind Blockchain Party

February 15, 2018 was one for the books. On that night, Decentral hosted more than 500 people in our brand-new 15,000 square foot office space in the heart of downtown Toronto. The blockchain party was part recruitment initiative, and part milestone anniversary celebration (#DecentralParty). You can get a taste of what the event was like by watching this video of the #DecentralParty.There were robots buzzing around. There was a hologram. There were networking opportunities both for the people new to the blockchain space and those immersed in the industry.

“We had 100+ all-star devs (developers), founders of Toronto blockchain projects and around 400 blockchain enthusiasts joining us. I couldn’t be prouder!” says Maggie Xu, Business Development at Decentral and who has spent the last three weeks organizing this magical night.

The highlight of the evening for many was the live, hologram speech and Q&A with Ethereum founder and Decentral CEO Anthony Diiorio. The crispness and the real-time ARHT HumaGram (or human hologram) was a wonderful surprise for the audience.

Xu declared it a one-of-a-kind event. “The night felt like a sci-fi rock concert with robots, holograms, and a virtual reality display of the plans for our new 15,000 square foot office,” she says. “Shout out to Addison Cameron-Huff and Anthony Diiorio for the fantastic delivery of Decentral’s 2018 road map.”

Roy Carreiro was among the attendees. He’s a new client of the company’s, and after the event, a self-proclaimed fan. “I was truly impressed on many levels. I have been following this movement for a few years now, and have been looking into how I can participate in my own way to help it along,” he says.

Carreiro likens the experience to visiting a parallel universe, or the set of cult TV series Star Trek. “What I saw was amazing. I was like a kid walking into the Enterprise,” he says.

A who’s who of the blockchain world

Ethereum co-founder and Decentral CEO Anthony Diiorio describes the event as a success, and an important moment in the company’s history. “This was our first event in our new space. It conveys the growth of Decentral. This is now our fourth location. It was our largest event ever.”

In addition to some big names in the blockchain space, attendees included representatives from the Blockchain Research Institute, the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC), BMO Capital Markets, Cormark Securities, CIBC World Markets, the National Angel Capital Organization (NACO), TD Securities. The media list included social news outlet Diply and Betakit.

More blockchain events to come

Diiorio says this is a taste of what’s to come during what promises to be a year of major announcements and changes for Decentral. “This was a look at our new space and a chance to share our vision for what the future is going to look like for Decentral, Canada’s coolest office space. It was showcase for other events to come.”

It was, in many ways, a calling card for people interested in the blockchain space. Particularly talented people looking for a company that is looking to grow with the best and the brightest. Xu says “If you’re a developer that wants to build some cool stuff, email [email protected] We are building a platform that’ll be the mother of all blockchain projects.”
