Dan Simerman on IOTA's Evolution Since 2017 and Coordicide

Dan Simerman, Head of Financial Relations for IOTA, comes on the podcast to give an update on where IOTA is today compared to when it hit the ground running during the 2017 bull market. We cover the basics of its feeless structure, and why such a thing is necessary for internet-of-things (IoT) applications. We also cover the challenges the project faced in the past, and the future plans on overcoming those challenges, including "Coordicide" to remove the central coordinator node, and move to a truly decentralized architecture. Finally, we cover some of the interesting applications and partnerships that have surfaced recently.
