IOTA also known as the internet of things is a technology that enables transactions between devices on the internet of things (IoT). Verification known as Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) verifies the previous transactions and then lets you perform the current transaction. The IOTA Tangle is a Directed Acyclic Graph which grows in conjunction with activity in the network; i.e., the more activity, the faster the network. It works on a quantum-proof protocol that reportedly brings benefits like ‘zero fees, infinite scalability, fast transactions, and secure data transfer.’
