We proudly present the first alpha release of the IOTA wiki. Built by the community for the community. The wiki is at an early stage, and we would really appreciate your contribution. Jeroen has built a great in-page editor, which makes it easy to contribute to the wiki content without being a GitHub expert. You will however need a GitHub account.

The wiki blog will also contain a collection of curated community posts in the future. The wiki will be a one-stop shop for IOTA information.. Let's BUIDL it together!

Die Zwitscher-Maschine

One way you could describe a distributed ledger is a network of machines which tell each other the truth.
In a distributed ledger networked nodes send messages back and forth that look this:
[statement] is true
