“IOTA Tangle” to manage Air Pollution in cities

Be a part of the SOLUTION, not part of the POLLUTIONThe most frequent, constant and important news we read and listen almost round the year is the poor condition of the environment and the hazards which comes along with it. Delhi, the national capital of India, has to go through this chronic issue of poor air quality particularly during the winter months, and it is not the only city in the country and the world. Many other cities share the same fate as it.The AQI — Air Quality Index — becomes the most important index…

Trinity Desktop 1.3.0 Release

We have just published a release candidate for Trinity Desktop 1.3.0. This build contains a Spent Address Recovery tool.Why do we need a Spent Address Recovery tool?IOTA's one time signatures mean that it is unsafe to spend from an address more than once. So if tokens arrive on a spent address, spending them would put them at risk. While Trinity prevents sending funds to and from an address that has already been spent from, other clients and exchanges may not have these same checks. The tool added with this version…

X-CUBE-IOTA1 or IOTA on STM32, Experiment with the Crypto for IoT

The full article was originally published by STMicroelectronics. Read the full article here.X-CUBE-IOTA1 is a software expansion package that helps developers working on STM32 microcontrollers take advantage of IOTA, the first open-source distributed ledger technology. It includes drivers for STM32F4 and STM32F7, as well as a custom IOTA layer necessary to interact with the network. Since the package contains the fundamental building blocks to create IOTA nodes, engineers can also select other STM32 devices, such as…

ProductID 2.0

Development goes forward Six months after the initial launch of ProductID, we have obtained many confirmations of the importance and usefulness of such a tool in many industrial contexts.We have therefore decided to invest and expand the functions of the system. ProductID’s Basics The main feature of ProductID is to provide an identification property of a generic object.To grant a strong security level, the ID property provided by the system is dynamically generated each time the ID verification is needed, and…

Untangled Episode #18: Supply Chain: Food Safety & Retail Transparency

As we heard in the Global Trade & Supply Chain episode of Untangled a few weeks back, supply chains are complex systems that currently lack transparency.Increasing supply chain transparency is a tricky task and exposing this transparency to consumers is even more difficult.But what if consumers could demand transparency?Today, consumers want to make informed choices about the products they purchase.Particularly in the food and fashion industry, provenance data can help consumers assess the authenticity…

meta-iota — IOTA Ecosystem Development Fund — Milestone 1 Report

I’m glad to announce that my OpenEmbedded layer for IOTA projects — meta-iota — was recently selected for the IOTA Foundation’s Ecosystem Development Fund.You can read an introduction to the project on my first post: IOTA cIRI on a BeagleBone Black with Yocto Project and OpenEmbedded. There, I explain what the Yocto Project and OpenEmbedded are, and explain a bit the context behind the idea of creating the meta-iota OpenEmbedded layer. Here’s a video summarizing what the Yocto Project is:…

Integrating physical devices with IOTA — Philips Hue edition

The 14th part in a series of beginner tutorials on integrating physical devices with the IOTA protocolIntroductionThis is the 14th part in a series of beginner tutorials where we explore integrating physical devices with the IOTA protocol. In this tutorial, we will be revisiting the use-case from the first tutorial in this series, where we built a simple power circuit that would allow us to purchase services from a physical device using IOTA tokens. In this tutorial, we will take on the same idea and apply it on top of…

How methane emitting cattle can actually help solve Australian bushfires

The news of Australian bushfires is heartbreaking. And the Australian PM’s respons is infuriating. Not just in regards to the direct measures taken, but also as to the cause of the fires and its future mitigation. All the more because there are solutions that not only protect the environment against such disasters, but bring economic benefits as well. The irony is that the solution has already been shown to work in Australia. It involves cattle, and contrary to what you might think, this solution reduces greenhouse gasses…
