Towards Open Collaboration: The Linux Foundation and IOTA Foundation join forces through LF Edge

At the IOTA Foundation, we’ve always done things a bit differently. Many like to think that while our industry mostly took a left, we instead took a hard right. Embracing new architectures, rapid development, rapid research, and an internal focus on figuring out how to do things in a way that scaled with some prominent core principles.No one should ever have to pay a fee for infrastructure, so we will always remain fee-free. No one should have to send value to send data. So we will always have a two-pronged…

Winners of the IOTA Machine Money contest on Hackster.io

We are proud to announce the winners of the Machine Money contest on Hackster.io. The contest was focused on combining the value transfer element of the IOTA protocol with hardware solutions. We were impressed with the level of skill the Hackster and IOTA communities showed when building these projects. It was tough to pick the three winning submissions, given there were so many well-developed and novel solutions to the challenge.After lengthy deliberation, we chose the three submissions that suited the challenge the …

Fast and eco friendly PoW with Trinity

The world is talking about global warming. Bitcoin’s enormous energy requirement is bad for the climate. IOTA needs much less energy, but also needs computing power, among other things, for the PoW, which currently makes up a large part of the energy required.We, TangleKit, made it to our task to optimize the processes in and around IOTA in order to make it even better, faster and more environmentally friendly. Through special hardware our service powsrv.io offers faster and more efficient PoW, which avoids wasting…

Introducing Chronicle — A Permanode Solution

The IOTA protocol is a permissionless trust layer for the Internet of Things which enables a frictionless exchange of value between machines and humans. Anyone can secure data on the Tangle and make it verifiable to third parties for free.For node owners with limited storage, transactions can quickly fill up their database. This presents a problem for the Internet of Things, where IOTA is working on integration with low-level, resource-constrained devices. We introduced local snapshots for this reason, allowing node…

Efficient Use of Iota MAM for Storing Machine and Sensor Data

How to Store and Update Machine Data on IOTA Proposal for a Message Structure using IOTA MAM Masked Authenticated Messaging (short MAM) allows to publish sensor data on the IOTA-tangle. This data is stored in so called messages, bundles of IOTA transactions automatically distributed on the nodes of the IOTA network and stored in an immutable form.MAM is focused on messaging, which means publishing up to date data for further use within the IOTA environment, like the upcoming smart contracts. As this data is already…

The Perspective

Noone knows what the final result of the Paracosm Project will be. I initiated it, invited different people to join its development and now trying to keep some distance to let the others shape the project. Nonetheless, some contours are already seen in the mist of future:IOTA — the protocol allowing to embed paracosms into the very fabric of humans existence via the Internet-of-Things.Ict (Iota Controlled agenT) — the software implementing the IOTA protocol and unlocking economic incentives which are supposed to…
