IOTA solves traditional cryptocurrency’s principal-agent problem (buyer-merchant-miner) in an elegant way; by removing “mining” altogether, a vast surface of attack & manipulation is resolved — as we see unfold in Bitcoin in the past weeks.
Instead, the users of the network are also in-charge of maintaining the network.
IOTA’s fee-less paradigm will be the back-bone of the Internet of Things economy; integrating machine-to-machine payments, boot-strapping decentralized applications & Data integrity — IoT’s future has never looked brighter.
