Learn about IOTA technology
IOTA is a distributed ledger technology (DLT) that allows devices in an IOTA network to transact in micropayments and to send each other immutable data.
What is IOTA?
The client libraries abstract the complexity of the IOTA protocol into simple methods.
Client libraries overview
To join an IOTA network and to start validating and storing transactions, you need to download and install one of the available types of node software.
Node software overview
Compass is an open-source implementation of the Coordinator, which is a client application that allows nodes in an IOTA network to reach a consensus.

Wallets are applications that store your seed and keep a record of transactions in a database. You can use wallets to simplify the process of securing your seed, sending transactions, and managing your balance.
Utilities are open-source applications or programs that you can either use as they are or use to fast track the development of your own applications.
Application blueprints are documents that explain how the IOTA technology can be used to solve real-world problems and to support well-defined business needs.

Track and trace
IOTA allows devices on the Internet of Things to use the Tangle as a single source of truth, where they can buy, sell, or simply send data among each other for zero fees.
