Consensus in the IOTA Tangle — FPC

This is the first in a series of posts that explain the consensus protocols described in IOTA Coordicide.The main objective of this series is to keep the community updated on recent research results and also to explain interesting research questions having good chances to be funded by Coordicide grants. As you will see, the topic is quite vast and there are a lot of connections and dependencies on other parts of the Coordicide project.Faced with this complexity, we’ll try to explain only a few points at a time and…

Intelligent Wine Management App Featured with DLT and Blockchain Technology

According to Zion Market Research, the global wine revenue is expected to exceed 420 billion by the end of 2023, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 5.8% between 2017 and 2023. The market show tremendous potential with the lure of the wine developing its own aroma and essence over time. However, developing such unique flavor requires specific storage environmental conditions such as darkness (avoid sunlight exposure), stable and constant cool storage temperature (approximately 13°C) with a relative…

IOTA ESP32 Wallet

Now that CClient v1.0.0-beta is released, IOTA can implement a hardware wallet based on it. I will, in this blogpost, briefly explain the architecture of the IOTA Wallet on ESP32 and I will demonstrate the wallet application.Introduction The CClient library is meant to apply the Tangle into IoT ecosystems. It is able to communicate with small devices. The ESP32 is a good candidate because it has built-in wireless connectivity.But what’s the ESP32?It is a 32bit SoC (System on Chip) based on the Xtensa LX6 It…

Measuring IOTA PoW ’s Energy Consumption and Comparing with other Payment Systems

Comparing IOTA Energy Consumption per Transaction (ECPT) with Bitcoin and Ethereum is funny but in this report, we measuring IOTA PoW ’s ECPT and comparing the result with VISA and Master Card payment systems. The result show IOTA PoW ’s ECPT is less than VISA and Master Card payment systems and IOTA network is more efficient but we have some constraints.VISA & MasterCard Energy Footprint per TransactionAccording to VISA corporate responsibility and sustainability report in 2017, the company consumed a total…

The value of zero

“The innovation is the tangle, do we need an IOTA Token?” “Yes we do” A short introduction: I am Olaf, a software engineer with experience in databases, distributed systems, edge computing, graph theory and relevant for this article: IOTA. I have been working for about two years with IOTA and I rarely use token transactions. I can honestly say that I actually never do it. I just use zero value transactions…. In relation to this, there is a question that comes up quite often when I and others talk about IOTA: What is the…

Learning by example: IOTA Workshops

IOTA introduces a lot of new concepts, such as the Tangle and Trinary, which may seem difficult to use. That’s why we have some excellent client libraries that abstract most of the concepts into easy-to-use functions.To help you start developing with IOTA technology, we created several ‘workshops’ for the C, Go, JavaScript and Python libraries. They teach the most common things you will do with these libraries and give concrete code examples that demonstrate how to do these interactions. The workshops are great to use…
