IOTA is the only partition-tolerant DLT. This means that IoT devices do not need to store the entire DB. Snapshotting is also used to keep the local database small. Swarm nodes will allow small IoT devices to run their own "micro" nodes which together with other IoT devices can form a swarm node. These micro nodes would then communicate with each other to ...
