Founder: IOTA on a “Very Good Track”
Currently, IOTA Foundation is working with High Mobility to drive app development for smart mobility while through Development Fund is working on making itself completely transparent and accountable to the community.
A big step was recently taken by IOTA by launching a coordinator-less testnet as we reported. IOTA founder, Serguei Popov revealed yesterday that the team had actually figured out how it is going to service without a network coordinator.
On the Untangled podcast, Popov said,
“The main task which we have right now is getting rid of the coordinator of the network. We also call it coordinate and well I think we are on a very good track, and we figured it out already.”
He further shared,
“We have something called ‘fast probabilistic consensus algorithm’ which solves many problems for us. We’re thinking of calling it ‘fast consensus of Barcelona’ or ‘FC Barcelona’… I’m joking…not everyone likes this idea.”
