DAGs — Not Blockchain, but better?

A topological ordering of a directed acyclic graph: every edge goes from earlier in the ordering (upper left) to later in the ordering (lower right). A directed graph is acyclic if and only if it has a topological ordering [Source: Wikipedia]

Technology built on DAG has the potential of handling a very large number of transactions per second. DAG will be used for applications that require scalability in the thousands of transactions per second.

DAGs are capable of scaling beyond current blockchains. But just as blockchains have limitations on how much they can scale, so do DAGs. So the question arises that what is the best data structure to use in order to pave way towards a global adoption of blockchain?
