IOTA Research Status Update August 2020

The past month has been very productive for our team, as we move toward a full, formal specification of IOTA 2.0. Our team has been hard at work across the board, both on wrapping up current tasks, as well as beginning to plan for our post-specification research. Below are the updates from several of our research groups. Please note that we’re planning to reformulate a few of the groups that have already concluded specification work, so next month’s update will have a slightly different presentation.GoShimmer…

Integrating DLT Into a KNIME Workflow| A Beginner’s Guide

Today I would like to show you (step by step) how you can integrate the Distributed-Ledger-Technolgy-Protocol IOTA into a State-Of-The-Art Data-Science-Software-Workflow of the KNIME Analytics Platform.If don’t know what KNIME or IOTA is, here is a short overview:· IOTA is a DLT based on a Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG), it was built to power the future of the Internet of Things. IOTA is permissionless, feeless and made for IoT microtransactions. The development of the protocol increased in 2020 a lot and we can expect…

The Sands of Time: Part II

Introduction (Read Part I) This is part II in a series of pieces attempting to dig up chunks of history and relate those chunks to the present IOTA experience. Expect the first few parts of the series to lay fairly rigorous groundwork in order to enable proper payoff of later pieces in the series. The Sands of Time series proceeds through history in chronological order, so the reader will gain maximum benefit by reading the pieces in the order they're written. Start with Part I of the series.In Part I, we learned…

Cross Pollination

GoShimmer is the group of technologies that will lead to Coordicide (Coordicide = IOTA 2.0). Reaching Coordicide is a multi-step process, however, so Chrysalis is the name given to the intermediate phase transitioning from current IOTA 1.0 to future IOTA 2.0. Chrysalis is therefore referred to as IOTA 1.5.We learned about the naming conventions for Chrysalis in Smoothing the Learning Curve. As a broad recap, Bee and Hornet are two software implementations that combine to make Chrysalis. That piece only dealt with…

One Brick at a Time

Building an open source technology from scratch is a monumental task that requires a mixture of talent and immense hard work.Opensource.com describes what open source is:The term originated in the context of software development to designate a specific approach to creating computer programs. Today, however, "open source" designates a broader set of values—what we call "the open source way." Open source projects, products, or initiatives embrace and celebrate principles of open exchange, collaborative participation,…

Crossing the Chasm

If the 2008 global financial crisis (GFC) wasn't inflammatory enough, then the ensuing central bank stimulus probably was. There were €12.6 trillion of negative yielding debt instruments at one point last year. We're unequivocally living in the lowest interest rate environment of the last 650 years.Bitcoin was born out of the GFC and forged its identity through this controversial central banking stimulus experiment. If you haven't read the Bitcoin whitepaper, we'd recommend it. It'll only take a couple of minutes to get…

Interview with SOCIETY2

Today, we're lucky to learn more about a promising project that's aiming to shake up the decentralized social media (DeSM) space. We talked to Ben Royce, SOCIETY2's founder, along with Joseph Skewes and the rest of the team. Ben, Joseph, and the team were extremely generous with their time, so I think you'll find their insights below particularly insightful. They even reveal an announcement in question number 10!SOCIETY2 has only been around for a few months, and what a time it is to start such an important project! We…
