Blockchains and the Tangle both fall under the same category of distributed ledger technology (DLT).
The main differences between blockchains and the Tangle are the following:
    •    In a Blockchain, new transactions can only be attached to a single point (a new block) that follows and is connected to the previous block. This leads to a race and competition for transactions to be part of a new Block.
    •    In the Tangle, every user is free to attach new transactions on different parts of the Tangle. This allows many transactions to be attached and processed in parallel, which dramatically speeds up the processing of transactions
