On joining IOTA
Our industries and society need technologies that will support them in the transformational changes they are undergoing. Distributed Ledger technologies will be the backbone of these industries, supporting organizations and individuals in their daily needs. IOTA’s own Tangle technology is on the spot as the one technology leading this important transformation. I’m very honored and thrilled to be helping IOTA Foundation’s vision becoming a reality.
With his diverse and impressive background as a product manager and software engineer, he will be a great addition to the team. His experience in ownership of product development and management will greatly boost the output of the IOTA Foundation’s development efforts. Give him a warm welcome!
