HORNET 0.4.0  —  Metamorphosis

HORNET 0.4.0 — Metamorphosis In the past months we have literally rewritten HORNET. With the 0.4.0 release HORNET now uses an object storage for caching data. This makes things way faster than before. The object storage implementation is also used by GoShimmer and is part of our common code base called hive.go. In addition to the new object storage we have switched from BadgerDB to BoltDB. This leads to a much lower RAM usage (about ten times less) compared to HORNET 0.3.0.Changes in numbers (compared to HORNET …

Getting Started with IOTA and WebAssembly(WASM)

Today, a prealpha version of the official WASM binding to IOTA’s Rust API was released, let’s try it out!I’ve set up a demo, where we generate an address with the iota.rs-wasm in the web browser. To see, why they did a WASM binding this — we also generate an address with the IOTA.js library and compare the calculation time.Just clone the repo, install dependencies and open the index.html file in your browser. git clone https://github.com/rust-iota/iota-wasm-demo cd iota-wasm-demo npm install npm run dev Open…

Here he shares his most updated explanation of what IOTA actually is.Let’s get back to the basics. What is IOTA? IOTA is an open source distributed ledger technology…

A Guide to Upcoming IOTA 2.0 (Coordicide) Terminology

With the Coordicide specifications nearing completion, the research department has been communicating the specifics of the new protocol to the engineering department, external researchers, and the community. This communication requires simple and standard terminology for the new components. However, until recently, researchers, including myself, have mainly used potentially confusing “in house” and ad hoc names.So, several researchers and engineers began devising proper terminology. Recently, we have completed this task…

Identity for a Digital Age

Despite the world being in the throes of a pandemic, human ingenuity and resolve continues to shine. Our cities might be locked down, yet we press on.Nature has made a comeback as humans have retreated into their homes. New Delhi is no longer plagued by smog and Twitter has been alive with wild animal sightings in uncharacteristic places. Deer in parking garages, wolves in neighborhoods, and even (apparently false) reports of porpoises enjoying newly clean Venice waterways.The idea of a green future inspired the…
