On joining IOTA
I have a passion for creating and building innovative, secure, and most importantly, open and inclusive applications. I am also curious and keen to take risks when walking towards the unknown. I think IOTA Foundation has done and is doing exactly this. Proving that, creative and non-traditional ways to shape open and transparent relations among things and people, can lead the way to an efficient and working solution. I am excited to be part of IF team and ready to help improving a very solid core.
Angelo is a computer scientist specialized in security protocols and applied cryptography, who has done some awesome work with IoT and underwater networks. His background and experience compliments our research team skill set and will be of great value to the IOTA project. Give him a warm welcome!
