IOTA and IOTA applications help save our planet and create a more peaceful world

Apr 29, 2018 · 4 min read

Besides the very important uses of IOTA, such as

  • Mobility and automotive
  • Global trade and supply chains
  • e-Health
  • Intelligent energy
  • Layer for other cryptocurrencies

which are absolutely important for IOTA and which also accompanies the “public IOTA project”, the focus should now be on a higher level. It’s about how IOTA can help solve big global problems. In this context, mention should be made of climate change and global cooperation

IOTA helps to stop climate change

Especially in terms of energy and emission reduction IOTA stands out by one aspect. For some other cryptocurrencies, a so called “Mining” is necessary. This is very energy intensive. One can not exactly determine the total electricity demand of the “Miner” distributed all over the world, but only estimate it. One of the world’s leading crypto currency experts, has calculated in its blog that the Bitcoin system currently consumes 32.5 terawatt hours per year. That’s as much as the entire country of Denmark consumes a year. And the energy needs of “Mining” will continue to increase.


These are phenomenal costs when we consider the CO2 emissions associated with power generation. IOTA comes without “Mining” for this reason has a lower emission burden.

Another aspect, however, makes IOTA a real heavyweight in the fight against climate change. As in the article: IOTA: Allrounder in the energy transition, IOTA plays a major role in the transformation of the energy industry. Complete transformation of the energy sector, which accounts for a large proportion of global greenhouse gas emissions, is essential to halt climate change.

The benefits of IOTA in energy industry applications can help to make communicating pipes between power generation and power consumption. These applications can thus become important interfaces of the energy value chain and contribute to the system stability of this new system.

IOTA brings together not only the industrial applications but also people

However, IOTA is not only an application that makes technical considerations possible but also a globally applicable cryptocurrency. The regional principle, as it is handled by the banks in the different countries, is thus overcome and a trend is set in motion to overcome national borders.

This global approach, combined with cross-border real world IOTA applications, Big Data and Industry 4.0, paves the way for users to connect in a global context.

We have read a lot about the connecting effect of, for example, Twitter and Facebook in recent years. The ability of IOTA to function both in machine economics and as a cryptocurrency and data carrier could, overall, have an even greater impact on humans and bring about a true revolution. This revolution can bring people and users together globally and contribute to peaceful coexistence.


IOTA’s ability to transform the entire energy industry allows IOTA to play a major role in tackling climate change. Through its global features and above all applications, IOTA supports the more peaceful coexistence of people in a global context.

The public IOTA Project

The “Public IOTA Project”, which accompanies IOTA, its applications and effects in a global context, would like continue to report on the challenges in the future and help shape them.

The vision of public IOTA: „The real IOTA revolution will take place when applications are realized that benefit the industry as well as investors, and when the broader population understands and accepts IOTA as well as recognizes benefits in their daily lives. We want to support this process as an independent group“

If you like our project, we would be happy to get support! The donations will be used to finance and realize the public IOTA Project.


It should be said again. We are not part of the IOTA Foundation or linked to any other way, we are an independent project. You should do your own research before investing, especially with respect to crypto currencies.
