The unbelievable Internet of Things (IoT)
Imagine a world where all objects communicate with each other with a same system.
Where a solar panel can communicate to another that it is time to activate the stored energy. A world where the cars would know when to stop or go because the traffic light told “him”. A city where you could know how many boxes of analgesics are stored in all pharmacies. An intelligent city, an intelligent country, an intelligent world. This is not a science fiction story, it is reality and its concept is named “The Internet of Things” (IoT).
To the connection and transmission of information between objects without the need of human intervention we call it The Internet of Things. The idea was raised by Kevin Ashton
in 1999. The objective was that through sensors you could know what was used, what was available, where it was, create an interconnection between everything, like a spider web.
The IT protocol is based on the directed acyclic graph (DAG) by means of an open code that allows the interaction of different nodes in the same network. This protocol is intended to open in different markets such as cryptocurrencies, where there is a cryptocurrency that, unlike its competitors, uses this system instead of the blockchain. This protocol is much safer, with a faster scalability and is decentralized.
Internet of Things wants to be taken to everyday life so much that the IOTA foundation is working with the German manufacturer Volkswagen, to introduce this technology in their new smart cars. They ensure that they make the cars safer and able to handle any type of software or application. But not only that, they are in contact with one of the largest banks in Norway to prepare and test what the IoT would be like banking and financial protocol.
The internet of things proposes a radical change in how we live life. And although many of us expected such a change, it never ceases to amaze us. This protocol allows us to imagine a number of other things. The protocol is still in the beginning period and it is projected that for the next 10 years it will be going strong in our society.

CEO of Verizon Communications commented that “If a person connects to the network, life changes, but if all things and objects are connected, it is the world that changes”.
