Analysts have found that IOTA is trading well above any real value it might have. The project is said to have no real product market fit and the network is centralized and unstable. Additionally, the approach taken by the IOTA team, like knowingly allowing critical vulnerabilities to exist in the software, presents many reasons to be highly concerned.
IOTA is “Sharply Overvalued”
IOTA, the network behind the 11th most valuable cryptocurrency in the world by market cap (MIOTA), has no justification for its current price levels according to a detailed new report. The 12-page analysis of IOTA has been issued by a long term $100 million cryptocurrency investment firm based in Texas, Multicoin Capital.
The analysts found a myriad of issues with the project, its technology and the team behind it. Their final conclusion is that given the current state of the IOTA network, the substantial technical risk, and the overwhelming evidence of serious flaws in the protocol, “we believe that IOTA is sharply overvalued at current prices.”
The report lists many problems with the project, beginning with the fact that it has not yet found a real product-market fit. The use cases section of the IOTA documentation is sparse and unspecific, and total relevant market is “currently quite small and likely does not present enough of a hurdle to justify users’ switching costs.”
