Jeremy on joining IOTA
I have a vision of a world where people get paid to do what they want to do anyway; where purpose, passion, and profit are in harmony. I believe decentralization is one of the best ways to do that. My mission then is to do whatever I can to bring that future to the present as quickly as possible. I believe IOTA represents one of the best technologies to achieve the goal.
We are very happy to be able to add a hardcore marketing expert with genuine in the field experience with distributed ledger technologies to our ranks. His experience will be very valuable in terms of raising awareness of IOTA and its vision to the wider audience. As we are entering the era of adoption and have A LOT of great progress to report it will be good to have Jeremy’s expertise in ensuring that everyone notices. Give him a warm welcome!
