Did the IOTA Foundation announce some IOTA news that didn't sit well with the market? Let's see what we can find out.

Interestingly, there's some positive IOTA news circulating the masses today. Perhaps if there wasn't an overall market decline happening, this IOTA news would have caused MIOTA to be in the green.

Both Kontakt.io and IOTA confirmed the news on social media.
