I’m very blissful to affix the IOTA Basis (IF) and I’m honored to play a serious function within the adoption of the Rust programming language all through the group, which incorporates embracing an open-source governance mannequin. I used to be following the evolution of cryptocurrencies since September 2010 once I first heard about Bitcoin. IF is the primary group that satisfied me to enter this discipline, with their aim to make use of distributed ledger expertise for making a framework to distribute and confirm information in a decentralized manner. The 2 elements that actually gained me over and made me be part of IF are a), its non-profit nature and pursuit to convey collectively actors from business, academia, and authorities, and b), the tutorial rigor of IOTA’s analysis staff, which demonstrates their seriousness to place its expertise on a strong footing.
