Either way, it’s not difficult to find an entry point that allows for a minuscule discussion of the two. When we talk of Ethereum vs. IOTA, memories of last November’s war of words between the two platforms come to mind.

Both IOTA and Ethereum launched after holding two of the most successful ICOs ever. But their different approaches to the possibilities provided by innovative ledger technology meant there was always going to be some sort of mudslinging between them.

Ethereum’s strength comes from the fact that it has proven time and again that its platform is the best for hosting smart contracts and dApps. Nevertheless, IOTA too has been running a testnet for the adoption of dApps. Read more from…
