Dany Shaanan is joining IOTA as a Research Scientist on the Research team. In this role, Dany will focus on the Coordicide project (the eventual removal of the Coordinator, a bootstrapping mechanism that creates additional security for the Tangle).

He is a mathematician and a self-taught software developer. At 16, he programmed his first Mandelbrot Set interactive visualizer and went on to learn various languages and web technologies. His interest in math led him to undertake a BSc in Mathematics in the Technion, focusing on abstract subjects such as set theory, topology, and combinatorics.

After graduation, Dany eventually worked at a software development company, mainly on projects with algorithmic and mathematical challenges. From there he moved to focus on software development infrastructure and tools at a big Israeli startup.

On joining IOTA

My love for math, passion for technology, and curiosity for the cryptocurrency space made The IOTA Foundation very appealing for me. When learning of the Tangle and the technological and mathematical challenges ahead, I knew that this is where I would be able to do meaningful and interesting work.

Dany Shaanan joins a growing research team, whose ongoing work will underpin the future of the IOTA protocol. Give Dany a warm welcome!
