On joining the IOTA Foundation
I’m very excited to join the advisory board of IOTA foundation. IOTA’s tangle technology is one of the most important innovations in the distributed ledger technology (DLT) in the last years that could truly enable the industrial adoption of DLT in large scale. I’m looking forward to working with the IOTA team to contribute to this transition of the IoT industry.
The IOTA Foundation is tremendously excited at having someone as experienced as Hongquan on the advisory board. His international experience in deep tech and pivotal role in RBVC makes him an ideal advisor that will undoubtedly add a lot of value to IOTA’s goal of establishing itself as a standard in the IoT, Industry 4.0 and beyond realm. Our relationship with Bosch and RBVC’s acquisition of IOTA tokens is a new milestone on this journey, and we look forward to sharing it with Hongquan. Give him a warm welcome!
