This event introduces IOTA, a next generation public distributed ledger that goes beyond regular blockchain by deploying an entirely new architecture based on the directed acyclic graph (DAG) called Tangle. The IOTA protocol gets rid of fees, scaling and centralization issues that have plagued blockchain since incarnation. In the Tangle ledger every user is also a validator, giving rise to an entirely self-regulating maximally decentralized network. This makes it an ideal transmission platform for ensuring and distributing data with tamper proof guarantee.

Mr. Lewis Freiberg, Director of Ecosystem, IOTA Foundation will provide insight of IOTA with the following advantages:

  • No transaction fees – enabling microtransactions
  • Decentralized – no miners
  • More network use = a faster network
  • Infinitely Scalable
  • An ecosystem for the Machine Economy
  • IOTA protocol ensures data integrity in information sharing
  • Tangle technology uses the ternary code, a natural progression from binary code.
  • Quantum secure – resistant to quantum computer cryptanalysis.

IOTA is developed by the non-profit open source IOTA Foundation with headquarter in Berlin, Germany.

About IOTA Evangelist Network

IOTA Evangelist Network wants to establish IOTA Tangle as the ubiquitous distributed ledger technology (DLT) in the world and the foundational protocol for the upcoming Machine Economy or 4th Industrial Revolution.

Key Takeaways:

  • What is IOTA and how it is different from a blockchain?
  • What projects are being developed on top of IOTA?
  • Establishing a network of people interested in working with/on top of IOTA
