Since its introduction in 1983, IPv4 has been the standard protocol for internet routing, however with the vast expansion of the internet, we have started to run out of the simple binary 32-bit IPv4 addresses. To solve this issue, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) developed the IPv6 protocol and it has been established as an Internet Standard in July of 2017. Its length is much larger at 128-bits, making it nearly impossible to reach address exhaustion. IPv6 also came with many advantages over IPv4, which you can read here.
