IOTA MIOTA/USD is a distributed ledger that was developed to handle transactions between connected devices in an IoT ecosystem. Its intention is to solve scalability and performance issues found on other blockchains by replacing the blockchain with Tangle, which is a system of nodes where each new transaction confirms the two preceding it.
The European Commission’s blockchain initiative as a catalyst for IOTA growth
On September 7, the European Commission’s Blockchain Commission selected the IOTA Foundation as one of the seven total projects that will participate in the preliminary stage of designing the Europe-wide distributed ledger technology platform.
This is an initiative intended to incentivize and increase the efficiency as well as accountability of European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI), which is a network of nodes fully dedicated to facilitating Europe-centric transactions. Its goal is to expand the region’s supply chain through the usage of these technologies while reducing the carbon footprint in Europe.
The IOTA Foundation, which is a non-profit organization that supports Tangle as well as an open-source DTL platform, will support EBSI.
It will be used to support cross-border relations between governments, citizens, and businesses.
Furthermore, it will aid in digital management of educational credentials, SME financing, data sharing, digital identification, and the establishment of trusted digital audit trails as well as document traceability.
These nodes are intended to be managed by the European Commission with 27-member EU jurisdiction as well as by individual members of the European Blockchain Partnership.
