IOTA (MIOTA) is a distributed ledger for the Internet of Things (IoT). Instead of using blockchain technology, IOTA uses a directed acyclic graph (DAG). The protocol used in it is known as Tangle which is a quantum-proof protocol. Some features of Tangle include ‘zero fees, infinite scalability, fast transactions, and secure data transfer.’ The IOTA Tangle is a Directed Acyclic Graph which almost cost no transaction fees, and there is no upper limit for the number of transactions that can take place per second in the network. Interestingly, the throughput of the network enhances as the congestion increases, i.e., the more activity, the faster the network.
