The level at which the vision on what IOTA is built on is so large it would be difficult to come around in a few words. The target is to create those circumstances in which all services are tradeable with another.  Primarily aimed at B2B but with the potential to expand rapidly into a B2C, and even C2C market, IOTA aims to make transactions between businesses seamless.

For example – A company is in need of more storage, while another company has enough even to sell – this can be processed through with the use of IOTA network. It’s a system that goes back to the time of bartering in Markets, where services are paired, rather than going through the middle-man of a currency first.
