The launch of IOTA’s layer 2 Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) network is indeed an exciting development, as it promises to integrate and tokenize real-world assets. This addition not only enriches the IOTA ecosystem but also delivers sophisticated functionalities that cater to both individual users and institutional investors.

CryptoCaster Quick Check:

It remains to be seen how this advancement will enable the tokenization of real-world assets within the IOTA network.

IOTA’s L2 EVM network features

Advanced features like smart contracts, cross-chain functionality, and parallel processing are introduced by the new L2 EVM network. These improvements aim to make it easier for decentralized finance (DeFi) apps to run smoothly and for physical assets to be tokenized effectively.


The network’s inherent defenses against Maximal Extractable Value (MEV), a predatory tactic wherein network validators tamper with transaction order to demand higher fees, are a noteworthy feature.

IOTA seeks to make the environment more secure and fair for all users by prohibiting such actions.

IOTA co-founder Dominik Schiener highlighted in a Telegram message the network’s potential to bring enormous amounts of real-world assets on-chain. Dominik stated:

“We are positioning IOTA to bring the real world to Web3 and help to bring trillions of assets and institutional investors on-chain.”

The creation of the IOTA Ecosystem DLT Foundation, the first foundation dedicated to distributed ledger technology registered in accordance with Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) regulations, bolsters Dominik’s ambition.

With features like on-chain KYC to identify investors and enable institutional DeFi trading pools, this regulatory compliance guarantees that IOTA is well-equipped to meet the needs of institutional investors.


Another important component of the new L2 EVM network is parallel processing, which allows for the simultaneous processing of multiple transactions. Reducing gas costs, increasing transaction speeds, and improving network scalability significantly are some of the major issues that this approach resolves for blockchain networks.

IOTA price response

Since the layer 2 EVM network went live, there has been a noticeable increase in the value of IOTA tokens.

The price of an IOTA token at the time of publication was $0.2352, up 3.23% over the previous day. At $773,040,069, the market capitalization increased by 3.27%. Furthermore, the trading volume increased by 25.71% to $20,353,145 in the last day.

But compared to its all-time high of $5.69, reached in December 2017, the price of is much lower now.

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble. 

Around the world, readers can access the CryptoCaster’s paywall-free journalism because of our unique reader-supported model. That’s because of people like you. Our readers keep us independent, beholden to no outside influence and accessible to everyone – whether they can afford to pay for news and information, or not.
