Should we give more of an IOTA about this altcoin?

At the start of the year, IOTA was sitting in the tasty top ten cryptocurrencies. It was the 10th most valuable cryptocurrency by market cap on January 7th. It was trading at $4.01 USD at the time and bore a market cap of $11,144,525,870 USD.

Moving ahead to the present. The market seems to have taken its toll on IOTA. The token is now sitting two places lower, as the 12th most valuable cryptocurrency. The token is trading for $0.582137 USD and bears a total market cap of $1,618,066,210 USD.

Looking at the statistics, it has seen a 10.17% increase in its day-on-day trading volume. However, as the year has unfolded, it has not been kind to the altcoin. IOTA has lost a whopping 85.4% of its trading value over the past nine months. It has also similarly diminished in its market cap by almost exactly the same percentage.

At its height on the 13th of January, the IOTA network saw one MIOTA token valued at $3.8964 USD. This is down from a record high of $5.22 USD on the 19th of December in 2017.

The network’s lowest value point this year saw one MIOTA value at $0.43 USD on the 14th of August. The network’s next high point thereafter was when the MIOTA was valued at $0.772 USD on the 28th August 2018.

Valuable partnerships and future projections

Over the year, IOTA has managed to team up with some big names.

In June, the network partnered with major automotive company Volkswagen. The partnership revealed a method to deliver vehicular software updates at Cebit 2018. The system is based on IOTA’s Tangle technology. Together the companies showcased a proof-of-concept initiative of a project which will deliver over-the-air software updates to connected vehicles to one another.


Illuminati, Mason, Anonymous I'll never tell. I can tell you this, global power is shifting and those who have the new intelligence are working to acquire this new force. You matter naught except to yourself, therefore prepare for the least expected and make your place in the new world order.
