Implementing an IOTA based Supply Chain Documentation

IOTA offers a way to store data in an immutable way and can therefore be used to establish trust and transparency in a logistics network with multiple participants. Especially when there is no dominating partner, this fact becomes more and more important. In this article we present a proof-of-concept implementation for a real-world use case, based on IOTA Masked Authenticated Messaging (MAM).The main characteristics of a supply chain is that there are handover points, where a good is given from one to another…

Welcome Navin Ramachandran to the IOTA Foundation Board of Directors

Dr. Navin Ramachandran has been a member of the IOTA Foundation since the end of 2016. As a practicing medical doctor and healthcare researcher, Navin took the lead of IOTA’s eHealth-focused activities, publishing on the use of the IOTA MAM protocol in healthcare, and speaking widely on the topic of IOTA and distributed ledgers. He also has a keen interest in information modeling, augmented reality and the impact of AI.As some of you may know, Navin oversaw the development of the Trinity Wallet due to an interest in…

A week in the life of an IOTA Research Intern III

In the first and second blog posts of this series “A week in the life of an IOTA Research Intern”, I gave you an overview of how I got involved with IOTA, how the foundation works day-to-day, and gave you a brief technical background on my chosen research topic: the design of a Decentralised Random Number Generator (dRNG). My internship with IF has now officially come to an end, so in this final blog post, I will reflect on my experience and talk about what is next for me.In the final week of my internship, I shared with…

Use our Services with our simple NodeJs packages

We just released our first npm-packages to make it even easier for you to use the tangle through the tangleMesh:api. With our service we offer a simple API with which anyone can easily use the functionality of the tangle without having to read into new technologies, or to write complex applications that monitor addresses and track transactions or messages. We have created an API documentation to make it as easy and understandable as possible for you to use our functions.But to make it even faster and easier to start, we…

Art Provenance With IOTA

This is an idea in motion and I welcome input and feedback from the community. I wish to address the primary concerns of art provenance in a simple and low-cost method which works for artists, owners and gallery goers — all concerned really. The following method might even allow for artists to continue collecting royalties on their work after it leaves their hands! Read on.The primary concerns of provenance in art are establishing:Production, creation, or discovery circumstances and legitimacy Establishing…

Outsource your Proof-of-Work with the tangleMesh:api

We have added a new category “compute” to our list of features. Outsource the PoW of your applications and devices and let us do the work!We are proud to present further news! We have accepted the first user feedback, analyzed it and incorporated it into our product.In order to make the use of our public APIs easier and better, we have introduced a new structure. In the course of this the new category “/transactions” has been added. Here you will find all the endpoints you need to send, receive and track IOTA…

IOTA community projecT: PeerOS

Since speculation plays such a big role in the crypto space, good projects that offer real value can remain under the radar for longer than they should. PeerOS is such a project.Sometimes the real reward of participating in a hackathon is not the prize itself but the idea which is born during the competition. This was true for Jan-Frederic Graen and his team, who did not win the Osnahack in June 2019 (the German city of Osnabrück’s hackathon), but came up with a great use case for the technology around IOTA which gave…

Hub Update: Easily Integrate IOTA With Your Exchange, Custody Solution, Or Product

Even though we are building IOTA for a world where machines can communicate seamlessly with one another, it is incredibly important that we take a step back to make sure that the usability of our technology suits the needs of the humans who are building with us. Known as User Experience, or UX, this philosophy is a critical component of adoption for most systems.That’s why we’ve been revisiting some of our core components to see how we can make integration and development for integration partners easier. One area is with…

IOTA, Dell Technologies, and the Linux Foundation team up for Data Confidence Fabrics

IOTA, Dell Technologies, and the Linux Foundation team up for Project AlvariumIn our initial Towards Open Collaboration announcement, we discussed our new collaboration with the Linux Foundation under their LF Edge platform. We are working together to enable IOTA’s core principles, as described in the announcement of our recent partnership with the FIWARE Foundation. Now we would like to announce our first milestone between the IOTA Foundation, the Linux Foundation and one of their leading members, Dell Technologies.…

AION: Milestone 1

An IOTA Ecosystem Development Fund update!This is a short blog showing progress on the AION project as a selective permanode solution for IOTA, read more about the AION project here.Because most of the rough research was already done before I did my EDF application I already had a good idea on what steps were required to make AION a success. Some of these steps involved changing IRI to fit the needs of AION. There would be workarounds but I believe that if some of these requirements were not met in IRI it would pass…

Presenting IOTA at the Yocto Project Summit 2019

Philipp Blum represents the IOTA Foundation as Developer Advocate of the Ecosystem team. I (Bernardo Rodrigues) have been porting IOTA projects into the Yocto/OpenEmbedded world, which you can find at the meta-iota OpenEmbedder layer.Philipp and I are glad to announce that we will be presenting an IOTA Workshop at the Yocto Project Summit 2019 (a.k.a. Dev Day). The Yocto Project Summit, scheduled for October 31-November 1, 2019 at the Lyon Convention Centre, Lyon, France, is a technical conference for engineers, open…

Coordicide update — Autopeering: Part 2

Introduction In the last blog post, we shared with you the IOTA Research Team’s simulator of the current autopeering model, along with some early results. In this second part of the series, we aim to give you a clear overview of the autopeering algorithm and its functioning.First of all, why is it important to peer automatically and with a certain degree of randomness? Roughly speaking, if a new node connects to others that were gossiped to it by a neighbor, the information received by the former node will be very…
