Tangle is the name of an alternative data structure that functions like a blockchain only without blocks; it offers security properties and guarantees though transaction trails. 

     Introduced by the heavily academic IOTA project, the Tangle data structure is in theory capable of infinite scalability. How it promises this is through a novel approach to block propagation, block proposal, and block confirmation. Where in traditional blockchain structures a single block is appended to the chain at a time and is confirmed by all entities at that exact moment; the tangle structure on the other hand implements a confirmation system where previous transactions confirm new transactions, and since there can be x amount of transactions happening at any moment and x amount that happened prior, multiple transactions can be added to the “chain”.
