In today’s IOTA News, we discuss the departure of David Sønstebø from the Foundation. A press release from IOTA published on 10 December shows that the founding member Sønstebø probably has different interests and goals than the current management level.

Let’s take a look at what the press release says and what voices there are from the Community. 

Last week, we received news on the Twitter channel that David Sønstebø is leaving the IOTA Foundation.

The reasons and statements are exciting and can be read in Detail on the Iota Blog.

The blog says at the beginning that the IOTA Foundation has separated from Sønstebø, the separation takes place after a unanimous decision, which was made by the board of trustees and is in the best interest of IOTA and its ecosystem.

On the official website, the image, Position and Name of Sønstebø are removed from the team display.

From the blog post, it can be read that the decision was probably made due to internal differences of opinion. So it says it was a decision “that had to be made”.

Furthermore, it says: There were some examples where David’s actions did not match what the Foundation stands for and what it wants to be. Because of the concerned investors and Community, the Foundation primary goal is to protect the interests of the Community and that the Foundation is not afraid to make difficult decisions that protect and safeguard these interests.

At the end of the post, it is also stated that the Foundation is as strong as ever. The technical developments will go according to plan and are progressing well.

This changes absolutely nothing about the deployment and strategy of Chrysalis and Coordicide, and we see good progress.

The mood of the Community is different on this matter. There are both supporters of this decision, as well as critics that criticize management decisions.

Some Reddit users have a view that it’s good news because some founders can’t grow with the project. It looks as if IOTA is getting ready for Corporate companies, and this does not affect the technological aspect of Iota.

Other users expressed that they had already turned their back on the project a long time ago. CalculatedLuck a community member said” I left Iota some time ago because the leadership was weak. The communication of Sønstebø was extremely unprofessional.”
