What to consider when buying IOTABefore buying IOTA, make sure to familiarise yourself with some of the things that may affect the coins success, as well as the risks involved:
- Tangle vs blockchain. IOTA uses a unique type of decentralized network known as the Tangle, instead of a blockchain, which are typically used by cryptocurrencies. The Tangle is still under development, and it remains to be seen whether it can deliver on its technological promises. While it is being developed, IOTA operates as a centralized network with a specialise node called the Coordinator used to protect the network from spam attacks.
- Nectar. IOTA is currently testing Nectar, which is its major v2 upgrade that will remove the Coordinator and make IOTA decentralized.
- Partnerships. IOTA has partnered with several high-profile organisations to help test its technology as part of the Internet of Things, or machine economy. Some of these companies include BMW, Audi, Dell, The Linux Foundation and numerous research bodies.
- Currency units. When purchasing IOTA you may see it written as MIOTA, which is simply a reference to the amount of units. IOTA is highly divisible, and one MIOTA is equal to one million IOTA.
- Use-case. Some of the proposed use-cases for IOTA network which are currently being tested include – communication between smart cars and machines, sharing unused computing power, digital ID and governance, tokenisation.
- Risks. IOTA is first and foremost a network. The purpose of the IOTA coin is to facilitate transactions on the network, but not necessarily to hold or appreciate in value.
