Important IOTA News
University College London Cut Ties With IOTA Foundation
Even though the situation happened some time ago, few significant cryptocurrency news sites has been recently reporting about this rather negative IOTA news.
Due to legal threats made by IOTA foundation in terms of cybersecurity researchers, prestigious London College decided to terminate its ties with the IOTA Foundation. Moreover, UCL emphasis that other universities and colleges should follow them and terminate ties with foundations which threaten researchers with lawsuits. They have given an official statement: 'UCL Centre for Blockchain Technologies is no longer associated with the IOTA Foundation. In relation to recent news report, we reaffirm our support for open security research, as a prerequisite for understanding the assurances provided by any blockchain technology. It is inappropriate for security researchers to be subject to threats of legal action for disclosing their results.'
Many IOTA supporters see this as an attempt of spreading FUD among the currency, as there are many small but significant details that have been omitted. However, the whole situation and the fact that IOTA team hasn't solved the problem in a clear way may in a way temporary affect the price, as bad press usually does.
