The idea behind IOTA is to create a payment technology for the emerging IoT (Internet of Things) markets. This cryptocurrency was created on a distributed ledger algorithm called “The Tangle”. IOTA has a lot of advantages: transactions are cost free, confirmation is fast, scalability is unlimited, and its potential usage is huge (though its machine-to-machine aspect can also put off some investors). The cryptocurrency started trading in June 2017 and has gone 446% up since then with info of its latest partnership with Microsoft acting as price rally trigger.
The main innovation behind IOTA is the Tangle, a revolutionary new blockless distributed ledger which is scalable, lightweight and for the first time ever makes it possible to transfer value without any fees. Contrary to today's Blockchains, consensus is no-longer decoupled but instead an intrinsic part of the system, leading to decentralized and self-regulating peer-to-peer network.
The IOTA Tangle is a Directed Acyclic Graph which has no fees on transactions and no fixed limit on how many transactions can be confirmed per second in the network; instead, the throughput grows in conjunction with activity in the network; i.e., the more activity, the faster the network.
IOTA (IOTA) is a distributed ledger for the Internet of Things that uses a directed acyclic graph (DAG) instead of a conventional blockchain. Its quantum-proof protocol, Tangle, reportedly brings benefits like 'zero fees, infinite scalability, fast transactions, and secure data transfer'.
By solving the inefficiencies of the Blockchain, IOTA, based on the revolutionary distributed ledger technology, the Tangle, is the missing link for the Internet of Everything and Web 3.0. Powering a secure, scalable and feeless transaction settlement layer, IOTA will empower machines and humans to participate in flourishing new permissionless economies - the most important one being the Machine Economy which we are building.
IOTA’s distributed ledger, by contrast, does not consist of transactions grouped into blocks and stored in sequential chains, but as a stream of individual transactions entangled together.
