Selv Demo — A Digital Health Passport

Selv Demo — A Digital Health Passport The IOTA Foundation combined forces with the world’s largest law firm Dentons in the Financial Times’ Global Legal Hackathon to “innovate solutions to the most pressing legal, regulatory, and civil society challenges posed by the COVID-19 crisis”. Together, we created a demonstration of how digital identity can give individuals control over their health data and its authenticity be guaranteed through IOTA. The architectural design of IOTA Identity has been validated by Dentons privacy…

Chicken or Egg

The “chicken or egg”, also known as the causality dilemma, has been around for millennia. Aristotle first raised the idea as a rhetorical question in 4th century B.C., an idea that would be thrust into the corpus of modern philosophy 400 years later by Plutarch’s The Symposiacs.Which comes first, the chicken or the egg? It’s a metaphor for situations in which a distinct cause and effect are difficult to separate. Macrobius would later deal with this paradox in 5th century A.D. before the matter was seemingly put to bed…

A Rust Learning Group in the IOTA Ecosystem

Since Coordicide is on the Roadmap, things becoming clearer for the community. The IOTA Foundation is focusing on Rust, a programming language for Web and IoT.Rust is a multi-paradigm programming language focused on performance and safety. It’s developed by Mozilla and backed up with sponsoring by big companies like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure. Here is a website with some companies which use Rust in production with different uses cases. These use cases are very diverse, for example, they…

Digital Twin

Industry 4.0 is a popular topic these days. The “fourth industrial revolution” encompasses ambitious ideas including smart manufacturing, smart cities, and the industrial internet of things. Residing at the heart of smart manufacturing, and arguably the vanguard of Industry 4.0 as a whole is the “Digital Twin” concept.We’re all familiar with the physical products that we encounter each day. Our cars, our appliances, our food. Well, all of these physical products have to come from somewhere, and those manufacturing…

In the last couple of years, the IOTA Foundation started to proactively participate in collaborative research and development efforts, funded by the EU commission. The main purpose has been twofold, to enable other parties to leverage the power of IOTA protocol in solving new problems and to identify and work on new requirements that would increase the long-term technology maturity and adoption.The trust of the IOTA Foundation as partners in such initiatives has grown since then. We are now glad to see that, following…

Autonomous Drone Delivery and Charging System — powered by the IOTA Industry Marketplace

Autonomous Drone Delivery and Charging System — powered by the IOTA Industry Marketplace A future goal of the Open Marketplace is to provide information about charging stations for autonomous vehicles like drones for free. They just need to pay for the service.It still sounds a bit like science fiction, but the development of drones and flight taxis has long been underway. Drones should soon become part of everyday life when it comes to transportation. But there is still a lot to do.Packages come with the drone,…

Release strategy for Chrysalis (IOTA 1.5)

Release Strategy for Chrysalis (IOTA 1.5)One of the IOTA Foundation’s primary roles is to define and deliver on a development roadmap that moves IOTA towards production-readiness and adoption. In a complex and ever-changing ecosystem like DLT, having a clearly defined vision — and strategy on how to get there — is the key to success.The IOTA mainnet has been operational since 2016 and so defining a new engineering strategy involves adapting our assumptions to industry…

Project outline: The Sensor-Tangle Gateway

For quite a while I’ve been actively working on a Sensor Tangle Gateway using the IOTA technology. This technologie enables us to store data secure, distributed and permissionless without any fees on a decentralized DAG, the so called Tangle. This DAG is a kind of Blockchain but without blocks and a chain. But it provides the same previous mentioned advantages without the commonly known issues like huge power consumpion or super expensive transaction fees. The Sensor Tangle Gateway (STG) is intended to connect the current…
