About Dominik Schiener:
Dominik Schiener is a young entrepreneur from Italy focused on realizing the Machine Economy. Already since an early age he was involved heavily in the Blockchain ecosystem, with his first (unsuccessful) startup in Switzerland in 2013 at the age of 17. He is the Co-Founder of IOTA, a disruptive new technology that enables machines to store and send money frictionlessly between one another. In 2017 he co-founded the IOTA Foundation and established Germany’s first non-profit foundation which enables and fosters permissionless ecosystems powered by distributed ledgers. Currently he co-leads the IOTA Foundation and oversees the overall realization of the vision and the partnerships with multinational companies, NGO’s and governments. The main challenge he’s working on right now is how to bring a nascent technology like IOTA to market-readiness – and thus unleash its full potential for society to benefit from it.
