IOTA Foundation responds to centralization questions: we have chosen the path of progressive decentralization

The IOTA Foundation says that many people criticize the coordinator as a centralized component in the IOTA network. Nevertheless, we will stick to our decision to implement this critical safety feature. With the coordinator, the IOTA Foundation is able to protect user tokens and prevent further theft. After careful consideration, we have chosen the path of progressive decentralization, and comprehensive decentralization remains our main goal.
