MIOTA Rallies on Chrysalis Implementation Next Week
One major reason as to why IOTA (MIOTA) is rallying in the crypto markets, is the fact that Chrysalis has been scheduled for implementation on the mainnet beginning next week. This update was provided by the team at IOTA via the following Tweet.
Coming next week! The first phase of #Chrysalis (IOTA 1.5) on our #mainnet with significant performance, usability, and reliability upgrades.

Chrysalis, or IOTA 1.5 as mentioned in the above tweet, is a series of upgrades on the IOTA mainnet to achieve enterprise readiness before Coordicide. The latter is a series of processes that will ensure the removal of the IOTA coordinator to bring forth a fully decentralized and scalable DLT network.
The team at IOTA further explains the outcomes of Chrysalis as follows.
Simple transition to Coordicide – …we want to ensure that all developers and companies building on Chrysalis will not see any major breaking changes with the later transition to Coordicide.
Substantial performance improvements – The mainnet will be able to handle several hundred TPS.
Improved developer experience – The new protocol features, new libraries, new modules and new wallet will make IOTA one of the best platforms to build on, removing the friction which developers experience today.
Accelerated adoption – Chrysalis will make IOTA enterprise-ready, with stable and reliable technologies that will enable Startups, Corporations and Governments to develop and launch products powered by IOTA.
