With IOTA there are no dedicated miners involved or needed in the process of verifying network transactions unlike Bitcoin or the vast majority of other blockchains. In the place of miners, with each transaction that is made on the IOTA network, the iginal creator of the transaction must verify two other transactions on the network. In a way, the miners and users are one in the same. Each transaction requires a small amount of Proof of Work to be done on their part in order to participate on the network.

The impact of self-learning software now and in the foreseeable future by https://is.gd/cVoWsf

We’ve spent so long wringing our hands and worrying about artificial and virtual intelligence that we forgot to roll out the welcome mat when they finally arrived.

The future is here — and it’s equal parts exciting and terrifying. Now that our world is populated with computer programs that can teach themselves new tricks, how will things change? What’s still worth worrying about?
