Emmanuel Merali, a technophile and a long time believer in the IOTA vision and was welcomed to IOTA foundation by Iota founder, David Sonstebo to the team in a recent post.
IOTA is a public distributed ledger that stores transactions in a directed acyclic graph structure, called a Tangle. The Tangle removes the cost of the energy inefficient mining process required by many bitcoin-based cryptocurrencies.
Emmanuel Merali got his MSc from the University of Manchester in System Design. He ran a successful development consultancy firm in the UK, lead a data warehouse team in Sydney for CA, worked in Seattle for AOL on the infrastructure of the statistics system for the ICQ messenger and was CTO of the Israeli startup Mobli. He is also the founder and CEO of RFTP Technologies Ltd which was started in the month of November 2015.
Emmanuel Merali recently said,
“For as long as I can remember, I have dreamed of contributing to the advancement of Smart everything: smart homes, smart factories, smart cities. I strongly believe that IOTA has the potential to revolutionize the market, thanks to the many advantages of the tangle such as security, decentralization and reliability. I am confident that IOTA will play a central role in bringing this vision to reality and I am very excited to be part of the effort to develop this advanced technology.”
