Unlike most other crypto coins there is no such thing as mining IOTA. All the MIOTAS on the market were sold for the first time in 2014, at the launch of the criptomoeda, and since then only resold among its users. This is mainly because IOTA does not use Blockchain technology, but Tangle technology.
At Blockchain the mining process occurs when you use your machine to process existing transactions, during the transaction a ‘fee’ is discounted, which goes to the miners. Already on the IOTA Tangle network, when you make a transaction, it will be used to validate a subsequent transaction, ie – you do not mine – but with this, the IOTA network becomes faster and free of fees.
