Why spam the network with transactions?
It speeds up confirmations!
IOTA is a cryptocurrency whose transaction confirmations are based on subsequent transactions that get added to the tangle. So the more transactions that get added to the tangle, the faster previous transactions get confirmed.
There are other bottlenecks in play that may limit confirmation time, like network quality, bandwidth, and node reliability.
