My comment might get downlvoted or deleted, but I certainly believe IOTA will play a significant role during the next 10 years! yes, this is long-term investment, but just look at the development recently, their DAG technology, and their potential for institutions, corporations, and in general for infrastructure in WEB3, transaction layer and validation (identification). Btw, IOTA 2.0 is decentralized already which was main critique for years

tldr; The proposal aims to enhance the IOTA EVM ecosystem by utilizing unclaimed IOTA tokens from the Chrysalis network migration to boost on-chain liquidity. This strategy is intended to make the ecosystem more attractive, facilitate seamless onboarding, and promote growth and stability. By transferring these tokens to a multi-signature wallet controlled by trusted IOTA Ecosystem members, the proposal seeks to allocate funds to various DeFi initiatives, thereby reducing volatility and slippage, improving trading efficiency, and enhancing network performance and user adoption. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article.

Summary for those not in the know: The IOTA Protocol has gone through several hacks and iterations through the years. In 2017, a famous hack occurred which forced them to fork the entire network structure so, so the IOTA Foundation (IF) put all hacked coins into a wallet they controlled and stated everyone had to "re-claim" their tokens. This was done through Slack/Discord. There are some IOTA holders who weren't following the coin closely or weren't active on those platforms may not have claimed their tokens back, so their coins remained in IF control. Since then, the IF has been angling to find ways to be able to access and use these coins (to sell) to fund their own projects rather than maintain them as a cold storage. After printing 65% of new supply to IOTA and dropping more and more in the coinmarketcap rankings, this is just another stunt by the IF to try to get more funds to feed their bloated organization at the expense of the community.

In 2017, /r/cryptocurrency was comparing Bitcoin to tech companies and "doing research" trying to find the crypto with the best **technology and innovation**. They compared Bitcoin to AOL or MySpace saying BTC will soon be replaced by new shitcoins with superior technology. Most of these people lost most their money. It's 2024 and people still haven't learned. People are still doing research and falling for tech memes. https://np.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/7kval4/in_20_years_bitcoin_will_be_to_crypto_what_aol_is/ - In 20 years Bitcoin will be to crypto what AOL is now to the internet. - Lol—try 3-5 years. - I think 20 months tops - 20 yrs? Think 2. - It' ll happen sooner. The world turns faster constantly. Bitcoin is like a fat, slow dinosaur - Agreed. Could be months. The space is wide open for competition. Could def see ETH and BCH taking the crown. - Someday people will think that it'd ridiculous to pay fees and wait time to transfer money and they will buy IOTA - Companies will not bet on a burning piece of garbage like Bitcoin, and whatever they pick will win. I guarantee it. See: Bosch/IOTA. - Hmm your comment has made me think of possibly splitting my portfolio four ways - ETH, IOTA, XRP, REQ. - The sad fact is there are coins from 4 years ago that are better than Bitcoin, we don't even need new projects to take leaps forward. - Tl;dr I think your bitcoins are going to be about as valuable as your 20 hours of free internet CDs from AOL - In 2017 alone, Ethereum, Iota, Ripple, Vertcoin, Monero and Litecoin have all made big moves in terms of tech and adoption. What will 2018 bring? 2019? Will Bitcoin still lumber into 2020?

There recovery and there is recovery against BTC value. Example: - ALGO needs to go about ~25X to reach 2019 ATHs in USD value - ALGO needs to go ~150X to reach 2019 ATHs in BTC value The opportunity cost of falling for a bullshit tech meme shitcoin sold by a scammer who kept 20% of the supply to himself is immense. This lesson could have been learned just looking back at 2017/18 shitcoins like XRP, IOTA, etc.

> uses PHANTOM GHOSTDAG for consensus (a DAG variation of Ethereum's GHOST protocol) GHOSTDAG is not a DAG variation of GHOST, it is actually more accurate to describe it as a DAG variation of Bitcoin. Also, GHOST isn't Ethereum's. It was invented by Yonatan Sompolinsky, the same guy who invented GHOSTDAG. > Needs a very high number of confirmations for finality (1000+ confimrations, 100+ minutes?, this needs fact verification) It does not need a very high number of confirmations. Also 1000 confirmations would take about 17 minutes on mainnet, or 1.7 minutes on testnet. > has 1-3s average block times The average block time is 1 second on mainnet and 0.1 seconds on testnet11 > has very small blocks (usually 1-3 Tx per block) A Kaspa block can hold up to 300 transactions, we ran 3000TPS on testnet easily. > In general, PoW is less secure than PoS, but PoW has more censorship resistance and higher liveness than PoS. I would expect PoS DAGs like Nano and IOTA to be more secure but less resistant to liveness attacks than KASPA. But there are many design differences, so this is too simplified of a comparison. PoW is not less secure than PoS. > Kaspa does not natively support smart contracts or DeFi. It can emulate it off-chain in the same way than Ordinals and Inscriptions have emulated tokenization on Bitcoin. But that's nothing like true DeFi. "True DeFi" is having DApps that respond fast, it doesn't matter if it is achieved via native processing or via rollups, after the L2 is settled it has the same security as the L1, that's basically the entire point of settling. If Kaspa can do rollups that settle once every 10 seconds than it provides the same security as any native smart-contract, but much faster than most.

There's a lot of missing documentation for Kaspa, which makes it hard to research it. Half the pages on their Github (https://github.com/kaspanet/docs) are still Work in Progress, so I don't have a full picture of it. This is what I've found in my own research: Facts: * **Consensus**: * uses PoW for sybil resistance * uses PHANTOM GHOSTDAG for consensus (a DAG variation of Ethereum's GHOST protocol) * **Transactions**: * uses UTXOs for transaction type * does not support smart contracts * Needs a very high number of confirmations for finality (1000+ confimrations, 100+ minutes?, this needs fact verification) * Extremely cheap Tx fees, practically free * **Blocks** * is DAG DLT * has 1-3s average block times * has very small blocks (usually 1-3 Tx per block) * **Tokenomics** * has no premine * has a 28.7B supply cap, has monthly (1/12th halvings) effectively providing 1 halving per year * Other * There is a community building KRC-20 tokens, which are similar to JSON-format BRC-20 tokens, and nothing like smart-contract ERC-20 tokens. https://docs.kasplex.org/protocols/krc-20-tokens/basic-operation/deploy * Does not support DeFi * Founder is Yonatan Sompolinsky, who is responsible for inventing Ethereum's GHOST consensus protocol **Notes and Opinions**: * In general, DAGs are much faster and more efficient than blockchains, with the downside that they're more complex. Nodes need to put in more effort to make sure transactions are ordered without double-spends. * GHOST is more efficient than Bitcoin's version of PoW because it does not waste orphaned/stale blocks. This is important for DLTs with fast block times. * In general, PoW is less secure than PoS, but PoW has more censorship resistance and higher liveness than PoS. I would expect PoS DAGs like Nano and IOTA to be more secure but less resistant to liveness attacks than KASPA. * Kaspa does not natively support smart contracts or DeFi. It can emulate it off-chain in the same way than Ordinals and Inscriptions have emulated tokenization on Bitcoin. But that's nothing like true DeFi. * I'm not sure about how many confirmations is needed for probabilistic finality. Normally, this would be covered under documentation, but Kaspa doesn't have documentation on this. This needs to be determined by running through the complex math from its whitepaper with the current block times (1-3s). * I'm concerned about the lack of documentation and block explorers. There is one block explorer, and it's missing a lot of basic features. There is not a lot of community infrastructure for Kaspa. **Overall**, I would treat Kaspa as a much better version of Bitcoin (much faster block times, cheaper transaction fees, high throughput, much more efficient). But that's not much of a compliment since nearly EVERY blockchain is better than Bitcoin. Protocol-wise, GHOST provides similar security to Bitcoin's heaviest-weight. But that's about all it does: just basic transfers. It doesn't support smart contracts or DeFi while many other blockchains do. So I think this limits the growth potential for Kaspa.

#DAG Con-Arguments Below is a DAG con-argument written by Blendzi0r. > First published on [28.11.2021](https://np.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/pfon33/rcc_cointest_general_concepts_dag_conarguments/hmehg1e/) > > DAG stands for Directed Acrylic Graph. It is an alternative solution to blockchain. If you want to learn more about the basics of DAG, visit e.g. [Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Directed_acyclic_graph). > > DAGs often brand themselves as feeless and while that is undoubtedly a positive thing, it also increases the risk of DAG networks being attacked. For example, NANO is one of the most popular cryptocurrencies that is based on DAG and it [suffers transaction spamming attacks](https://blog.nano.org/recent-dos-nano-network-attack-and-v21-3-fixes-97b9b7297f9) from time to time. > > To counter this problem, projects that use DAG often implement solutions that involve centralization, e.g. [central coordinators, pre-selected validators or “witness” nodes or completely private network systems](https://maxthake.medium.com/blockchain-vs-dag-technology-1a406e6c6242). And since centralization goes against one of the core principles of cryptocurrencies, this is considered by many as an unacceptable trade-off. > > Another problem with DAG is that it has not been battle-tested on a large scale yet. Unlike blockchain, that is already well established. There are probably only two cryptocurrencies that use DAG and that are known to an average crypto-enthusiast: NANO and IOTA.

These funds will be used for marketing and getting crucial partners, not go to their pockets as you seem to be implying. And judging by Stargate, LayerZero and Pyth supporting IOTAEVM, it seems these funds are already being put to a good use, giving IOTA new growth opportunities (which may outweigh the dilution in the end). Also, the dilution comes in a form of inflation over the period of 4 years (which is still better tokenomics than a lot of other crypto projects, tbh). There was no sudden supply increase, so there was also no sudden drop in price after this announcement (check the chart if you don't believe me). Highly controversial decision for sure, but with no negative effects in the short term, and it may have positive effects in the long term.

All I can say is that at least they managed to get something done in the end. They threw out a lot of bad actors and time wasters but at least the coins are worth something in the end. They could have done what one of the founders did which is to just pull out and start a new project. Rinse and repeat. I liked IOTA because it was feeless. 10 years down the track and I thought it would have been obsolesced by now. In fact, 10 years later we are still paying $30+ for transactions when the network activity gets high. To have a platform with free transactions is still relevant. It's now a matter of trying to convince all the people who were burned by this project to come back.. Or at least finding new developers and business who understand that if you want to build stuff on blockchain, you don't want to be paying huge variable amounts in order to conduct your work or business.

Well that's the thing, isn't it. I don't see any normie knowing how to use any crypto-currency like this at the moment. Of those, Algorand wouldn't be their first choice. I suppose that's what this ad is trying to showcase but really, if they are plugging a use-case of using crypto in a grocery store, I would argue is pretty pointless because why use this over your debit card? And if you like crypto, why wouldn't you just use a CDBC when it comes out? What? You want to hold your purchasing power? Then Bitcoin is king there. What? You don't like fees? What about Nano or IOTA?

Wait I'm a IOTA shill? I don't even own any IOTA lol. The last paragraph is literally talking about a crypto that doesn't exist yet. So that would rule out IOTA, and any existing crypto, so there's nothing to shill.

I honestly can't see how any of the links and points raised can be refuted. If the list of actual accomplishments was longer, that would be a counterargument. But I'm sure it's not. The ostensible goal of iota is still (to my knowledge - please educate me if this is not the case) unique in cryptocurrency. And it really is the only goal I care very much about in this space. Trustless, feeless, decentralized plus scalable and secure. From this, we could have * Decentralized ID: I am excited about this for many reasons, but it would allow a trustless way to confirm someone is human, or to track credibility. Imagine what this would do for the internet alone - no more bots, reviews that could be trusted, ai-generated content could easily be exposed etc. * Microtransactions automatically negotiated via smart contracts. As a community planner, I see purchase in this because it would mean we could price vehicular use of public roadways. People also talk about smart cities. * supply chain management: knowing the authenticity of every piece of a value-added chain of manufacturing or provenance of an agricultural good or whatever seems like a good thing. I honestly feel like we got a bunch of prima donnas without the technical bona fides latching onto a really exciting objective and torpedoing it. It has to be said, the biggest prima donnas are gone. Now we have someone who looks way too young and inexperienced at the helm, but he seems to be earnest and genuine. All that said, it's the only crypto I have money in today. I feel about the same about it as my monthly lottery ticket in terms of payday. From a technical point of view, they have several peer-reviewed papers dealing with security on a dag. I find the concept of network topology as a means of securing the network intriguing, and I think mana is a pretty cool idea to create an incentive/disincentive for using/abusing the network, respectively. I am not a software engineer. I am a community planner. Was I scammed? Probably. My staying interested is rooted purely in the science(fiction) of the goal. tldr: the IOTA foundation has used up all its good will and people would be insane to have any "faith" in it. That said, I think it is reasonable to follow IOTA if only because the goals they are trying to accomplish are super exciting. I'm not paying attention for the payday, I'm paying attention for the science (fiction).

During that time frame: - 5 BILLION increase in circulating supply - 2 BILLION gifted by scammer Silvio Micali himself which probably hasn't been all dumped yet, It took took Jed McCaleb 7 years to dump just 9% of his XRP - 0 BILLION actual Demand - Money used to buy FIFA sponsorship, racing sponsorship, dead file sharing companies Napster, LimerWire, etc None of these raised red flags for you and gave you a hint that it was all moneygrab bullshit? Or did you think that a Turning Award winner and MIT professor could not be greedy and run a moneygrab scam? You only have to look at history and at people like Javascript investor, Mozilla founder Brendan Eich who give zero fucks about integrity when there is $$$ to be made from scamming naive crypto investors. People like me have kept warning noobs not to fall for tech meme bullshit in crypto. Here is something from 2019: > You seem to be fixated on tech.

LTC is #4 and doing great and NXT is pretty much dead https://np.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/bza16u/top_7_unique_highpotential_cryptocurrencies_of/eqt1lh5/ In 2019, I was saying that people are going to be soon falling for new scams like Cosmos, Polkadot, Hedera, etc were coming and your old scams like Stratis and Iota were going to be dead. > Don't worry, a new round of shitcoins will be coming with new hype. Soon people will be shilling about Cosmos, Polkadot, Hydera Hash, Fantom, Radix, etc. Some of these other coins that are in the top 25 will be gone the way Stratis, Golem, MaidSafe, Bitshares, SingularDTV which were in the top 25 at this time in 2017. https://np.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/bjohvq/daily_discussion_may_2_2019_gmt0/emd4p9j/ In 2020, I got downvoted many a time for saying buy Bitcoin and don't chase shitcoins: > I feel bad for the people who fell for the Bitcoin is a dinasaur tech meme. No no, you said invest in a newer faster tech whether it be a scam like Ripple, halfway working vaporware like IOTA.....You had a once in a lifetime opportunity of a 3-year head start to front run big dick institutional funds and maybe even sovereign funds but instead you chose to chase after shitcoins. As a result there are probably a ton of people who have been in crypto for years don't even have a whole Bitcoin or cannot afford one now but could easily have acquired one over the past three years. What's worse, as Bitcoin's value appreciates more and more, some of you don't even realize what is happening and are still chasing some shitcoins. At least acquire some Bitcoin for god's sake. There's no reason we can't all make it. https://np.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/kk8n2g/daily_discussion_december_26_2020_gmt0/gh3kmjt/ And /r/cryptocurrency is mostly here to shill you tech meme shitcoins and circlejerk each other and lose money together. In 2017, /r/cryptocurrency was comparing Bitcoin to tech companies and "doing research" trying to find the crypto with the best **technology and innovation**.

Could def see ETH and BCH taking the crown. - Someday people will think that it'd ridiculous to pay fees and wait time to transfer money and they will buy IOTA - Companies will not bet on a burning piece of garbage like Bitcoin, and whatever they pick will win. I guarantee it. See: Bosch/IOTA. - Hmm your comment has made me think of possibly splitting my portfolio four ways - ETH, IOTA, XRP, REQ. - The sad fact is there are coins from 4 years ago that are better than Bitcoin, we don't even need new projects to take leaps forward. - Tl;dr I think your bitcoins are going to be about as valuable as your 20 hours of free internet CDs from AOL - In 2017 alone, Ethereum, Iota, Ripple, Vertcoin, Monero and Litecoin have all made big moves in terms of tech and adoption. What will 2018 bring? 2019? Will Bitcoin still lumber into 2020?

> I think people can grasp “token = equity” easily enough I think people who are still falling for the "governance token" scam thinking it works like stocks are either new or naive. The founders keep the majority of the tokens and control governance or the token holders have no say in the protocol at all. This is very different from publicly traded companies where the Board of Directors are elected by the shareholders and the board elects the CEO. I posted this 4 years ago when people tried to call MakerDAO decentralized and that a change was made due to "governance" vote that was passed...they deleted the link to details of the "executive vote" proposal > There are ELEVEN addresses that accounted for 98% of the voting for the protocol change for an "executive vote" used USDC. Eleven addresses control the entire protocol and a protocol change was voted in just...what 24 hrs? And most of those addresses are probably owned by a handful of people. I mean one guy, Rune Christensen, can control the whole protocol with his votes and 90% of the MKR tokens are owned by 100 wallet addresses. https://np.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/fl68d4/crypto_collateralized_stable_coins_have_proven/fkxc40i/ Same bullshit happened with the Aragon DAO where a whale controls everything in Aragon: > AGP42 : Put differently: aside from one whale, AGP42 passes. The Aragon community overall voted for AGP42, but it was rejected with 69% of the vote because of one whale. > AGP37: 82% in favor of AGP37. 453k to 99k. But then the whale voted. So despite 83% of addresses voting in favor of AGP37, on the surface it appears to be a large defeat where 66% vote against. > AGP-35:: Here’s another case in point: Edgeware Lockdrop Proposal for Aragon..The 792k whale voted for this. Deduct the whale’s votes and you get 338k. Which means that this proposal was losing by about 15% at ~43% versus ~57% pre-whale. Then the vote went from losing decisively to winning by a massive landslide. So aside from the whale, the Aragon community voted against Edgeware lock drop participation https://evanvanness.com/post/184616403861/aragon-vote-shows-the-perils-of-onchain-governance Algorand governors had no say in the massive token dump, buying of FIFA sponsorship or buying of dead file sharing companies. NEM, Stratis, IOTA, Polygon, RocketpPool, etc had no say when insiders decided to increase the token supply from a fixed amount by 20%, 60% or unlimited amount diluting the value of people who invested and creating more downward pressure.

https://www.dtcc.com/-/media/Files/Downloads/DTCC-Connection/Smart_NAV-Report.pdf > Pilot to evaluate the feasibility and industry value of delivering a DLT-based price. We see an opportunity to potentially expand the scope of the pilot - Crypto Project pays company to do a pilot - Creates hype - 1 year, 2 years, 5 years later nothing materializes out of this We've seen this play out over and over again. Yet people keep falling for the same crypto hype tactic, over and over again. I've lost count of the number of banks, tech companies and governments that Ripple, Stellar, IOTA, Factom, Vechain, etc did pilot programs and partnerships with. Chainlink itself had pilots with Swift, collaborations with Google, etc. But there is no evidence that any of these pilots will ever materialize into anything or bring value and demand for the token. On the other hand, LINK price has gone from $20 in August 2020 to $14 today with Sergey Nazarov having dumped ~240,000,000 tokens on the market over that period. Bagholders who bought into the hype not only missed out on bullrun gains but are down -30% since 2020. Since there there is no demand or need for the token and Chainlink "Foundation" has 450,000,000 to dump, why would anyone buy this knowing what the inevitable token dumps do to the price?

Wow some of these articles bring back memories. I was completely taken in by Bosch, VW, data marketplace, permanently fixed token supply, Quibic. I've lost more money in IOTA than any other investment by far, crypto or not.

So sad of how all of this has happened in the past.. I went in hard after reading about the thoughts behind IOTA in the early days.. For me, it started with their story about smart cities where devices had their own ecosystem. a random car acting as a taxi could drive itself, and charge electricity at a random homes. that would earn iota through solar power (this was around 2015, 10 years earlier), every device it's own wallet and autonomy. This was during the time they had the intention of "IOTA Data Marketplace", which did not even had a small traction of starting... Although, this used to be science fiction, but we can see some of this happening soon.. by IOTA? i don't think so, but they might become the standard API protocol between devices... **but which company cannot create that?** Maybe I'm at lack of understanding of IOTA's plans with all these partnerships, this whole roadmap needs to come clear.. until now, lack of transparency, lack of direction, lack of money (lol), lack of focus... is just sad... Seeing this list of failed projects and failed promises, since I've known IOTA.. fuck I need to wake up and sell all of this shit... my message to IOTA.. where's your MVP, and maybe focus on something smaller... the world is not ready yet... After writing this, it reminds me of Elon Musk, and his ways... start building stuff and create your own products which will end up becoming your own ecosystem... relying on partnerships to use your product, and hope it becomes an ecosystem? Mehhh... dream on...

Better leverage is using a margin account and short a basket of zombie projects. For example. You put 1000 in the account, you invest 2000 long in your favorite coins (at least 3 of them to avoid being easily liquidated) and short 1000 in zombie projects like XRP, ADA, EOS, MANA, IOTA. better in several of them so there is lower risk of liquidation if there is a big pump in one of them. Usually I short more whatever coin has pumped the most among my zombie projects. And repay later after the unavoidable dump. This strategy works for me quite well because the interest paid isn’t big, and said zombie projects keep losing positions in the coin ranking

Hedera calls its architecture a hashgraph, which is a specific type of DAG, (Directed Acyclic Graph). There are plenty of DAGs like Nano, IOTA, Hedera, Kaspa. They are all incredibly fast and incredibly cheap compared to blockchains. The downside is that their architecture is more complex and requires validators to order their transactions as they arrive. Slightly different than the typical mempool. They also do not have true blocks, but they can have virtual or artificial blocks, which are just transactions packaged together over a period of time. Also not necessarily a bad thing.

I don't want to pour water on your hype, but I'm just saying as someone who got in in 2017 and has avoided getting seriously burned... A lot of what I've seen over the past several years is people buying future promises of performance, and then those promises never materialize. Or they take way longer than expected. Most notable ones I can think of are REQ, which actually did end up pulling through with a lot of what they said they'd do, but took so long that everyone who bought in got burned and has a bad taste in their mouths about it. The other being IOTA which has been promising the removal of their coordinator to make itself decentralized this entire time, but the coordinator is still there. Coordicide was being anticipated practically "very soon" since 2018, and you'll still find people hanging onto that promise even today almost 6 years later. I don't know anything about Kaspa, and you might end up being right on all points. But be wary of promises of future performance being presented as today's selling point unless it's a risk you can afford to take.

Most hyped tech meme narratives from the the 2017/18 cycle... - April 2017 --> XRP is the Standard! Banks are about to adopt XRP while you invest in joke projects. - May 2017 --> Stratis is the future of Blockchain tech, smart contracts written in C#. Devs are going to flock to the platform - June 2017 --> IOTA is going to be the backbone for the "machine to machine (M2M) economy, this will become the underlying protocol for the internet of things" - July 2017 --> SIA and Golem are going to revolutionize tech creating a paradigm shift in storage and computing. This isn't like 2013 meme coins, we have serious projects in 2017. - August 2017 --> NEO is the Chinese Ethereum, programmable in multiple languages, developer community only second to Ethereum, embraced by China, the market the potential is massive - September 2017 --> Bitcoin Cash is the real Bitcoin. Bigger blocks, blockstream sucks, Roger Ver is the lord and saviour. - October 2017 --> OMG is going to bank the unbanked. The future of blockchain. Scaling Ethereum L2 with Plasma! Just look at the team. Lightning Network creator Joseph Poon. Vitalik himself is an advisor! - November 2017 --> Vertcoin because ASIC resistance is the future - December 2017 --> REQuest Network is the most important financial project to crypto. They are a Y-Combinator startup so you know they are very aggressive! - January 2018 --> Raiblocks (NANO) is fast and feeless and will kill every inefficient blockchain currency - February 2018 --> Vechain is going to be the first crypto with enterprise adoption. Look at all those partnerships. Look at the technology, the project is a copy pasta of the Ethereum code base but it's Chinese innovation nonetheless. - March 2018 --> ICON, it's the Korean Ethereum, they're partnered with a ton of Korean banks, hospitals, universities....and you know Koreans support their own projects. ...reminds us not to give up on your bullshit tech innovation narratives. Your shitcoin is not going to die because people will rather baghold forever than admit they are wrong... 2021 > Don't confuse short term price action with long-term fundamentals.
