On Friday, Meeting, a decentralized layer one sensible contract community constructed throughout the IOTA ecosystem, introduced it had raised $100 million from non-public buyers, together with LD Capital, HyperChain Capital meeting, and Huobi Ventures.
The challenge acknowledged that the funds will probably be used to speed up the event of decentralized finance protocols, nonfungible tokens, and play-to-earn crypto video games.
IOTA is a blockchain designed for facilitating internet-of-things transactions. Its proprietary expertise consists of a system of decentralized acyclic graphs that may join to 1 one other in a number of vectors versus in-series as with a daily blockchain. Because of this, one new block can validate two different blocks, resulting in self-sustainable transaction verification. This allegedly results in the entire elimination of transaction fees and minimal power value.
The Meeting mainnet is presently scheduled to launch in early 2022 with a big neighborhood focus. 70% of its native ASMB tokens are reserved for developer incentives, community-governed decentralized autonomous organizations, and grant applications.

In an announcement to Cointelegraph, Dominik Schiener, co-founder and chairman of the IOTA Basis, claimed that there are too many Ethereum Digital Machine, or EVM, blockchains stating:
“In the end, all of them will face the identical issues with charges, scalability, and interoperability. Most of them will fail in the long run as they provide nothing distinctive.”
When requested concerning the uniqueness of the Meeting blockchain, Scheiner feels that all of it comes all the way down to flexibility:
“Every sensible contract chain may be totally custom-made to the challenge’s wants. As well as, Meeting is already totally EVM-compatible, and has assist for WASM [WebAssembly], plus Go, Rust and TypeScript as optionally available sensible contract languages.”
Billionaire investor Stelian Balta, founding father of HyperChain Capital, mentioned:
We all the time wanted a feeless, extremely scalable community for builders to construct extremely scalable apps within the crypto ecosystem. Meeting does that. They’ve been pioneers within the crypto ecosystem since 2015, and we’re assured of their expertise and their imaginative and prescient for the subsequent decade.
