Blockchain and IoT: A Conversation with Dominik Schiener of the IOTA Foundation

To tackle scalability and transaction fees, we came up with a completely new architecture specifically tailored for this IoT environment: the IOTA Tangle. It’s no longer blockchain (it has neither blocks nor a chain), but it’s still a distributed database and a P2P Network, and it relies on a consensus mechanism. Instead of a subset of the network being responsible for the consensus (miners), the entire network of active participants (i.e. devices making transactions) are involved in the approval of transactions. The consensus in IOTA is no longer decoupled from the transaction-making process: it’s an intrinsic part of it, and it’s what enables IOTA to scale without any transaction fees.
