On joining IOTA:
“I believe that IOTA has the very real potential for radically transforming how machines and people interact with each other in a way that will create a new paradigm for conducting business. Whether it is the enablement of novel business models through microtransactions, the cooperation between new and traditional legal frameworks, or the creation of solutions to some of society’s thorniest issues,(e.g., environmental, medical) and everything in between, such as smart contracts and smart cities, IOTA can make this interconnected world a better place. I am excited to join the team and play my role in helping make this happen.”
We are proud to announce Clint Walker as our newest Supervisory Board member of the IOTA Foundation. His combined legal, financial and regulatory experience will be a valuable asset to the foundation as we accelerate our North American expansion efforts. Please give him a warm welcome!
