The IOTA Foundation, a non-profit organization runs a Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) network that has become the darling of many businesses and other organizations in the recent past. IOTA has secured several partnerships with different companies, the latest of which are Primority to help in the development of a food tracking App and Alyx to ensure transparency in its fashion supply chain. The uniqueness of IOTA’s DLT is pegged in Tangle. Instead of being an ordinary blockchain, Tangle builds on a directed acyclic graph (DAG) that circumvents scaling issues with classical blockchains.
