Where To Buy Iota And Which Wallet Holds It


IOTA is the first distributed ledger built for the Internet of Everything - a network for exchanging value and data between humans and machines. It is based on a new distributed ledger technology, the Tangle, which overcomes the inefficiencies of current Blockchain designs and introduces a new way of reaching consensus in a decentralized peer-to-peer system. It is developed and provided by the non-profit IOTA Foundation with headquarters in Berlin. The goal of the IOTA Foundation is to create a Trust Layer, which enables devices to exchange data and values immutable and free of charge.

Highly scalable: IOTA uses a DAG data structure allowing transactions to be added in parallel.

Low resource requirements: Designed for devices, such as sensors, to participate in a low-energy network.

Zero-fee transactions: Send 1 cent, receive 1 cent. Send $1,000,000, receive $1,000,000.

Fast transactions: IOTA transactions are confirmed within minutes.

Optional Quantum Robustness: With Winternitz signatures IOTA is resilient to the next generation of computing.

Distributed: A globally distributed network, IOTA is resilient and robust against attacks.

For the first time ever, people and machines can transfer money and/or data without any transaction fees in a trustless, permissionless, and decentralized environment. This means that even nano-payments are possible without the need for a trusted intermediary of any kind. The token was created to service the ‘Internet of things’ (IoT): the billions of small computing devices that are increasingly being embedded into everyday objects, enabling them to send and receive data. IOTA transforms these connected machines into autonomous economic agents, enabling an entirely new economy of things. It is predicted that by 2025 that more than 75 billion devices will be connected to the Internet of things.

The token was launched in June 2017 with its total supply of approximately 2.78 quadrillion IOTA made available from the beginning. No additional token will ever be created. Until the adoption becomes more widespread, 1 MegaIOTA (MIOTA) is the currently accepted base unit.
