On joining IOTA
I came into this field as I was interested in building a game on top of a distributed ledger ecosystem. I compared all of the available systems at that time, and none suited my use case. I discovered the IOTA Tangle and found that it may solve the issues I saw with traditional blockchains. Therefore I decided to use IOTA as a low level protocol for my game (the website of which will be made available soon).
I have been following the IOTA twitter account for over a year. At one point I decided to be part of the innovation — not just a user.
It seems that Marwen Trabelsi shares his passion for distributed gaming with one of the IOTA founders. More importantly he will play an integral role in helping our partners embed the IOTA Tangle into their ecosystems, Please give Marwen a warm welcome !
