IOTA new paper about the Tangle


#1

Hi,

A new paper has just been released today about the Tangle, which follows the first one some times ago.
The first one was criticized because of the lack of a rigorous proof by some searchers and academics working another DAG protocol, who created the first Ethereum protocol : GHOST. (see https://epicenter.tv/episode/192/)

Do you have some thoughts about this new paper ?

I would like to hear about this too. Byteball uses this same tech and I wonder how the Cardano team would respond to this idea that DAG is a better solution than a blockchain, although, it seems like they could both be used.

Comments anyone?

They first need to prove that it could work. Until then, it is just speculation.
