Following last week’s news that is launching an IoT (Internet of Things) based data sharing marketplace in partnership with some big companies including , its price has jumped considerably. Crypto investors and traders have been clamoring to get their hands on the vastly undervalued asset which has shot up from around $0.8-$1.2 at the time of the announcement to over $4.7 today.
The surge in interest and investment has pushed into the big league of crypto currencies where it is now positioned at number four with a market cap of $12.4 billion. It has surpassed which has a $9.5 billion market cap and is way ahead of with $5.6 billion.

The new architecture is referred to as a Directed Acyclic Graph, or ‘Tangle’, and it works without blocks or a chain. It is more like a web of nodes that can get verified at high speed so that it does not need miners and there are no slow transaction delays or associated expenses.

To get in on the action for a wide scope of altcoins traders must open accounts on all exchanges which can be arduous and will rack up fees and commissions. This alone has probably caused a lot of traders’ FOMO to be realized with the latest surge in .
The hope is that a blockchain solution such as or the one in development by will soon be available and widely adopted to facilitate high speed, low cost exchanges across all crypto currencies without the use of centralized and sluggish exchange companies. Until then we will have to find our own ways of getting on the next crypto gravy train.
