Make a REST API To Track Products

In this article, I make a simple REST API for tracking products using IOTA. This Tracking API will be used by products owner to record their products and all data they need about it(location,owner,modifications,time) then the API will push data to tangle then the API will response with the root address to track all products and array of addresses for each product. This array of addresses should be printed as QR code on each product for QR-code reader to update/read data. For the tangle part I used MAM restricted for…

Connecting an IoT Device to I3 and IOTA

Contributors: “Nelson” Nelson, Gowri Ramachandran, Kurian KaryakulamThe first article in this series introduced IoT, I3 and IOTA. This article explains the details of buying and selling data on the I3 Marketplace. By design, the I3 Marketplace doesn’t keep data. You can store it in the Tangle. Then, you can use data science tools to investigate trends.Sellers can use sensors to gather data. A CO2 detector monitors CO2 levels. An environment sensor monitors temperature, humidity, and other such data. You can sell all…

Towards Open Collaboration: FIWARE and IOTA join forces for a Smart Digital Future

Recently, we announced that we at the IOTA Foundation are making new strides Toward Open Collaboration. As a part of this effort, we are relinquishing the development silo that we have built to enable cohesive contributions into external collaborative organizations. This process started with the first landmark of the IOTA Foundation joining as a member of the Linux Foundation under their LF Edge project. The steps we’re making with the Linux Foundation were the first in breaking new ground for us, but by far not the last.…

Environmental protection, product identity, security and trust with Deposy

The Deposy project wants to develop a deposit system to obtain sorted plastic waste. Sorted plastic is better recyclable and also gives people an incentive to collect and sort. With this approach we hope to curb the global garbage. A more detailed description of the Deposy system is available here as a pdf or on the project homepage Deposy uses the properties of the cryptocurrency IOTA in combination with the tangle. IOTA is used for payments because transaction fees are avoided. The transfer and validation of the product…

TangleMesh as a 3rd layer application (TaaS)

The system architecture is constantly changing. With new possibilities and innovations emerging, new architectural concepts are constantly being developed. The new decentralized technologies offer new revolutionary concepts for the development of applications.In the past, enterprise software applications were programmed using the client-server principle. In this 2 tier architecture there is a client on which the GUI works and a server which contains the database and business logic. This model has evolved over time. More…

IOTA Crypto Core FPGA — Security

In case you missed the last article, click here This article is also about the small red FPGA module. Sorry for using the image again and again 🙂 Security is not an easy topic, because the securing has to be done on the lowest hardware-level but I try to explain it as good as I can. One of the main aspects of the ICCFPGA (short for IOTA Crypto Core FPGA) project was security. Unlike a server that is secured by physical measurements —for example, in a data-center — the FPGA module could potentially be used outside in…

Coordicide update — Autopeering: Part 1

The Autopeering Module A few months ago, we opened up the source code of GoShimmer, IOTA’s prototype and research tool to experiment and test the building blocks of Coordicide. We are thrilled to see such a big and productive engagement from the community and we want to thank you all for your contributions and feedback! They have been very useful to improve GoShimmer as well as to help us identify how to better redesign the autopeering module.We are excited to share with you the source code of the improved redesign of…
