Just want to create a dedicated thread for IOTA as it's starting to become better known. IOTA is still a very early beta project that is trying to improve on blockchain tech. Ill list a few features to give a quick snap shot on what it's all about; -Uses a tangle (3D Parallel connection) network instead of the blockchain (2D Series connection). -No centralization. -designed to work at large scales/ high volume. -No need for dedicated miners. -No transactions fees. -Every time a user makes a transaction he must first verify 2 other transactions. -The user is also a validator/"miner". -No limit of transaction per second. -Built in the ability to cull old unused transaction in order to keep the tangle from getting bloated. -Designed more in mind for machine to machine communication. This podcast is very informative. https://soundcloud.com/arthurfalls/ether-review-69-iota-the-post-blockchain-era Good intro video Good video showing where IOTA is atm. Far from final product. This has more detailed info on the video above. https://forum.helloiota.com/105/Help-My-IOTA-balance-is-zero-steps-to-help-you-find-your-balance I've always had issues with current blockchains as i always saw they ran into some big issues when working at large scales. Also the separation of the user and verifier was also an issue that is now starting to show problematic in current cryptos. IOTA was design with scale in mind and also removes the separation of user and verifier. IOTA still has a long way to go, but i really hope the developers are able get it all working. I'm still learning about IOTA, so please provide any other useful videos/ info you have come across.
