On joining IOTA
I am very excited to be a part of defining the new world of open-source distributed ledger protocol. This goes beyond blockchain. Zero transactions cost of IOTA is disruptive. With no scaling limitations, IOTA will be a driving force for the machine-to-machine economy of the Internet-of-Things and beyond.
Anders brings with him an impressive plethora of expertise in building and leading organizations, as well as decades of experience. In addition to bringing passion and enthusiasm, he also has a vast network of entities and individuals whom it is natural and strategic for IOTA to be involved with, which will be of great assistance to scaling the IOTA project to large-scale adoption. Anders’ joining the ranks of IOTA also signals the impact we are aggregating in Scandinavia, which at the moment is taking the lead in spearheading a lot of technology with both private and government support. Give him a warm welcome!
