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