Our decision to create on IOTA goes beyond the often promoted scalability, open, feeless, and quantum secure traits. When we first studied IOTA we were intrigued with its pragmatic design and departure from such an intense focus on blockchain DLT – we like things that are different.
Furthermore, the initial core founders extensive and meandering backgrounds prove how serious, inquisitive, and focused they are on the future. In the face of intense scrutiny, we have seen consistent confidence in the IOTA Foundation from global corporations, team expansion, and technical development.
While IOTA has managed to minimize hype; the most honorable feature of the project is how they executed their crowd sale in 2015. At the time, a majority of ICO campaigns withheld up to 40% in crowdfunding contributions. The IOTA project maintained 0% and offered the community 100% of the available token supply of which nearly 5% of the total supply was donated back to the project.
Foregoing the opportunity to raise considerable funds, the team put the project first with the foresight to know it would impact its future. This is an approach we can align with.
We are a proud member of the IOTA Evangelist Network (IEN). The IEN is a group of technology evangelists formed in 2017.
Membership spans 40+ countries and maintains a breadth of domain experience – journalists, NPO representatives, corporate representatives, software developers, entrepreneurs, and more.
The role of the IEN is to educate, support, and promote the values and mission of the IOTA Foundation and the Tangle protocol as a standard in the M2M economy and 4th Industrial Revolution. To that end, members can be found delivering presentations or collaborating on projects. For more information, visit the IEN website at www.ien.io
As a member of the IOTA Evangelist Network, KKGIX is also a proud champion and representative of the IOTA Japan network. The IOTA Japan community is home to those interested in the M2M economy, IOT, robots, or even the broader crypto industry. Everyone is welcome to join and existing members are encouraged to spread awareness of this advanced distributed ledger technology.
