On joining IOTA
I was so greatly emboldened by the members of the IOTA Foundation, their vision and the effort they put every day into this world-changing technology. It was the reason I started the #TwoToTangle — IOTA meetup series, proof-of-concepts, projects and evangelized this fascinating view of the future whenever I had the occasion. My goal is to inspire and further develop the Ecosystem with my passion for IOTA. It is a real honor to work with inspiring and talented people!
After years of being an active member of our community, we are very happy to announce Antonio Nardella is joining the foundation. His experience, passion for IOTA and attitude will help propel the IOTA project forward. Give him a warm welcome!
