IOTA Introduces Geo-Tag Transactions

IOTA has just introduced a new proposal that would allow tagging and retrieving transactions at a certain location. Hence, different Tangle-powered applications could be built around specific geographical regions.


Localizing every transaction

Prior to the above-mentioned proposal, there was no possibility to determine the location of a given transaction. One would have to register his/her transaction with a centralized service that collects geodata.

With the introduction of IOTA area codes (IACs), each transaction could also be localized to a 2.8 x 3.5m area if there is a need to precisely identify a certain location. Users are now able to query large geographical areas (100 x 100km) for related transactions.
