However, IOTA has taken steps to address this issue by launching an awareness program backed by the UN General Assembly. Marianna, a member of the IOTA team, stated that their objective is to reach out to Blockchain projects within the development sector and assist them in resolving the problems that they currently face. By doing so, they hope to enable these projects to create a greater impact in a more efficient manner.

This can be achieved by providing suitable tools, which IOTA's engineering and research team is focusing on. However, it is crucial to involve policy and lawmakers to allow technology experts and innovators to develop new products without facing hindrances. Regulations should also prioritize the protection of users and consumers. By achieving balance between innovation and protection, the industry can prosper and create transformative solutions for various problems.
