This article is a translation of the German IOTA Beginner’s Guide by Schmucklos.

General Basics

Before we turn our attention to the great vision of the IOTA Foundation, everyone should read up on the important basics. I will explain them roughly in the following chapters. Without the basics some topics will be difficult to understand.

More Details

Internet of Things (IoT)

IoT refers to the connection of objects to the Internet so that these objects can communicate autonomously via the Internet and thus perform various tasks.

Internet of Everything (IoE)

IoE extends the IoT emphasis on M2M communications to describe a more complex system that also encompasses people and processes.

Machine-to-machine (M2M)

M2M communication refers to the automated exchange of information between end devices without manual, human intervention.

Communication Technology

Besides the well-known static Internet, there are other ways to transfer the IOTA protocol. The future IoE will use different technologies for data exchange, like 5G, LiFi or LoRaWAN.
