About Dominik

Before Iota, Dominik Schiener founded several companies in the past. His first startup, Fileyy, an affalite marketing connection power. He next attempted to start a cryptocurrency-fiat exchange in Switzerland, Bithaus GmbH, but admits it was a failure. Dominik later founded the blockchain firm Finhaus in London. In addition, Domink completed several projects including a Decentralized Wikipedia, an Ethereum-based voting platform, and created a simple prototype of identity on the Bitcoin blockchain.

Because of its novel nature, IOTA can be hard to grasp for newcomers, and even for people coming from other Blockchain projects. The main purpose of IOTA is to serve the machine economy by enabling feeless M2M (Machine-to-Machine) payments, tamper-proof data security as well as whole range of new tools and products that we’re working on and will talk more about soon.
