IOTA Smart Lock — Proof of Concept

Exploring the idea behind our upcoming new innovative solution Note: this is a translation of a post that was published on LinkedIn in italian a few months ago. A prototype has been realized since then, we will soon release additional information about this solution.Opening a lock is a very common action, and nowadays we perform it many times everyday without realizing how complex it is on many layers.In time, locks and keys have become more and more sophisticated, especially in the digital era with electronic locks…

A week in the life of an IOTA Research Intern

Over the next two months, I will be writing about my experience as a Research Intern at the IOTA Foundation (IF).I applied for the role after working for several months on attack analysis of the pre-Coordicide Tangle and tip selection algorithms. At that time, I was working with University College Dublin as a Master’s student in Electronic Engineering and my research group became involved with some members of the IOTA Foundation.In particular, we worked closely with the Attack Analysis team, which was lead by…

AION

This is a short article describing the benefits of IOTA AION. A Selective Permanode solution that is funded by the IOTA Foundation through the Ecosystem Development Fund.In short: What is it? IOTA and it’s unique Tangle technology allow for -theoretically- unlimited amount of transactions. This is great but with the current setup this also means a -theoretical- unlimited storage requirement as well. This is where AION comes in, allowing for selective permanent storage of parts of the tangle and pruning the rest…

IOTA showcases sustainable energy traceability at Powerhouse Energy Positive Building

Traceable, renewable energy seamlessly being tracked locally in real time between buildings, infrastructure, and consumers is already being tested in a real-world environment.The Powerhouse building in Trondheim, the world’s northernmost energy-positive building, officially opens today in Norway’s third-largest and most innovative city. Neighboring buildings will be able to enjoy the excess energy of the Powerhouse produced from solar panels and geothermal energy. IOTA will be present at the opening, along with ENTRA,…

Possible IOTA use case: support of a plastic packaging reusable system

In Germany, just 16 percent of plastic waste is recycled. There are even fewer worldwide. This is the result of the “Plastic Atlas 2019”. Plastic waste is increasingly and becoming a global problem. A conceivable solution would be a kind of global reusable system based on DLT. A Feeless solution for payments, as the cryptocurrency IOTA represents it, would be conceivable, because micropayments are possible. During my vacation this year, I have witnessed the plastic garbage problem in various parts of the world. That is also…

Distributed Data Logger

Advanced MAM explorer for Industry 4.0 applications Distributed Data Logger (DDL) was created with the purpose of extending and boosting the well-known Masked Authenticated Messaging (MAM) second IOTA layer, allowing a MAM channel reader to access additional features.More specifically a MAM channel has these properties:- it can be read only starting from a known root id (the unique message identification number) up to the last message in the channel;- it can be read only sequentially, because the fetch function,…

Enabling a secure ecosystem of connected devices with IOTA and DXC Labs

The full article was originally published by DXC. Read the full article here.The number of connected devices is predicted to grow to 75 billion by 2025. This will create a massively connected ecosystem, and data security will be paramount.Many of these devices will be cyber-physical systems, which closely integrate computation, networking and physical processes. The devices consist of a physical entity and its cyber twin, which can replicate the behavior of the physical machine and give insights into how the machine…
