Representing both IOTA and Shimmer Network, the presenter delivered a talk titled “IOTA – Government Collaboration in the EU and East Africa,” where the emphasis was on IOTA’s unique features and successful collaborations. The main highlight was IOTA’s ability to offer feeless transactions for tokens, which significantly reduces the cost of transfers and operations.
Furthermore, the audience was introduced to the Trade Logistics Information Pipeline (TLIP) initiative currently underway in East Africa. The TLIP is a tangible illustration of how IOTA’s scalable and feeless ledger can provide solutions for industries beyond finance, like supply chain management, enhancing efficiency and traceability.
Both the Maldivian and Bruneian officials demonstrated immense interest in IOTA’s offerings. Their engagement is a testament to the growing recognition of IOTA’s objectives among individuals, corporations, and governments in Asia. IOTA aims to achieve mass adoption by developing a scalable and feeless ledger, a vision that resonates with the needs of the emerging digital economy.
The event, therefore, not only offered an opportunity to present IOTA’s capabilities but also served as a catalyst for opening up potential collaborations and partnerships with these esteemed institutions. The digital currency landscape continues to evolve, and IOTA’s introduction to these Central Banks marks a pivotal moment in establishing alliances that can shape the future of this field.
