IOTA is a third generation cryptocurrency and distributed ledger technology that does not use blockchain to reach consensus. Come to the first official IOTA Ecosystem Barcelona Meetup and learn how the Tangle, the technology behind IOTA, can offer fast, secure and free transactions without miners.
The Meetup has a 10€ entrance fee that will be refunded in IOTA tokens a few days after the event. Please download and install the Trinity wallet before the event at https://trinity.iota.org/ and show your IOTA address on the registration table so we can send you the tokens.
