To support the IOTA Tangle I’ve set up and am managing an IOTA IRI node enhanced through CarrIOTA-Nelson, CarrIOTA-Field, Prometheus and Grafana with docker installed on a debian VPS.

All my docker-compose projects stand behind a nginx-proxy with let’s encrypt for SSL support.

What is IOTA/IRI?

IOTA is a revolutionary new, next generation public distributed ledger that utilizes a novel invention, called a “Tangle”, at its core. The Tangle is a new data structure based on a Directed Acyclic Graph. As such it has no Blocks, no Chain and also no Miners. Because of this radical new architecture, things in IOTA work quite differently compared to other Blockchains.
This is a full-featured IOTA node with a convenient JSON-REST HTTP interface. It allows users to become part of the IOTA network as both a transaction relay and network information provider through the easy-to-use API.
It is specially designed for users seeking a fast, efficient and fully-compatible network setup.
