- IOTA Foundation appoints Dr. Rolf Werner as a member of its supervisory council.
- Rolf’s appointment is IOTA’s move to build a high-profile team.
IOTA: IOTA Foundation, a non-profit organization which is into Blockchain technology, released a post confirming the appointment of the Head of Central Europe at Fujitsu, Dr. Rolf Werner, as a member of its supervisory council. Before joining the foundation, Rolf is the Fujitsu Central Europe Head and also the chairperson of the Managing Board of Fujitsu Technology Solutions GmbH.
In the post, executives of IOTA foundation said they were thrilled to have Rolf join them. They said Rolf’s “unmatched enthusiasm and drive” would bring “great value for the IOTA project as it continues to cement its leading role in the DLT space.”
Since the beginning of this year, the appointment of Rolf Werner is the second notable employment for the IOTA Foundation in building its planned high-profile team. The first was the appointment of Johann Jungwirth, Chief Digital Officer for Volkswagen, into the IOTA Foundation’s advisory board last January.
IOTA Foundation’s main offering is Tangle – a supposedly ‘blockless distributed ledger’ which has been challenged by ‘traditional’ Blockchain technology, but which devs said offers promises for a number of sectors in the global economy.
Werner, when commenting on his employment, seemed to share common beliefs as he said:
“The possibilities of decentralized and secured applications based on IOTA Tangle as a Distributed Ledger Technology are immense. They go far beyond machine-to-machine payment and include, for example, tamper-proof monitoring of the supply chain and secure identity management, just to name a few. I’m delighted to join the IOTA Foundation Supervisory Council (Stiftungsrat) to accompany a journey which will be meaningful for lots of industry sectors worldwide.”
Fujitsu too is very active in the Blockchain realm. Late March, it opened a Blockchain Innovation Center in Belgium.
