Triggering Email alerts from the IOTA Tangle

The DIY Guide I recently came across a new project called Totangle. Totangle integrates the tangle with Zapier, which allows you to integrate things happening on the tangle to your existing APIs or workflows. The first use case they present is setting up an email alert when you get a payment on the tangle.Inspired by this, and also needing this tool myself (I want to get alerts when I receive tips from my Medium articles, without having to constantly keep my wallet open), I thought I’d see if I could make an open source…

IOTA in OTA An Exploration of IOTA Use Cases in the New Mobility by Alexander Renz

Interview with Eric Hop, Qubic’s Project Owner

I met Eric Hop by June or July of 2017. I was doing my first steps in IOTA as it got listed in Bitfinex and I started seeking for the existent communities. It didn’t take a lot to understand that Eric was all over the place: administrating IOTA’s Facebook group, moderating Slack and Forums at Hello IOTA, writing posts on Medium to bring light on dark aspects or propose solutions to unfixed scenarios such as the donations one. Eric was also helping with a new wallet and had a lot of projects. Despite all this, this guy always…

Thoughts about Simple Tokens on Iota

Peaq is a project that aims to bring ERC20 like tokens to the Iota platform. It intends to work on the Tangle as it is today. This means:no standard for determining timestamps no QubicOut of curiosity, I thought it would be interesting to think about how you could implement a dead simple fixed supply token if you didn’t have these constraints. These are not full featured ERC20 tokens. Just the simplest imaginable tokens.My goal for this exercise is to make transferring tokens as close as possible as…

Wrapping my head around Iota & Qubic

Like I did in a previous post, I find the best way to get a better understanding of something is to compare it to something I’m familiar with.In my case, what I am most familiar with is what I do professionally — building cloud applications on AWS. How and Why DLTs differ from traditional Cloud The problem of reaching consensus on the contents of a distributed datastore is nothing new. If you use a cloud datastore like AWS DynamoDB, the chances are that it runs a consensus protocol for nodes to agree on the contents of…

Volkswagen Over the Air Update PoC with IOTA at Cebit 2018

Firmware / Software Update over the Air Proof of Concept By 2020 industry experts expect more than 250 million connected vehicles on the road. The need to perform frequent remote software updates of car components increases with the level of automation - especially with autonomous cars. IOTA envisions becoming the underlying protocol for car makers and suppliers to ensure secure updates and transparent access to audit trails. IOTA is a third generation cryptocurrency and distributed ledger technology that does not use…

Infrastructure Inversion: IOTA and the IoT

What the hell is Infrastructure Inversion?Throughout history, technology always manages to plateau. The point at which the current systems can no longer support the evolving needs of our technologically astute society. When this happens, there is typically a shift that takes place, an inversion of sorts where a new infrastructure is built to support the technologies of tomorrow. This typically takes place due to limitations of the present infrastructure that no longer allow for innovation. Humanity has seen this take…

Running Blockchain Tokens on top of IOTA’s Qubic Protocol

2017 was perhaps the most insane and spectacular year for crypto we have seen so far. Without a doubt, ICOs have been one of the main drivers of this hype. One project, Ethereum (which has gained 10,000% in 2017, making it the 2nd largest crypto by marketcap as of today), has immensely profited by creating a new market for ERC20 tokens, - entire token assets built on top of Ethereum.However, Ethereum was not designed to be highly scalable. Transaction fees have been rising, making it more and more unattractive for a wide…

Tokenized Smart Contracts - Redefining the Landscape for Cryptocurrency

Tokenized Smart Contracts — Redefining the Landscape for Cryptocurrency Almost 10 years ago, Satoshi Nakamoto published a paper titled: “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System”. The idea of Bitcoin was born, but back then you would have been called delusional if you thought an entire asset market worth twelve digit USD figures would emerge from that.What started with BTC, was soon complemented with other assets. At first, there were mostly just renamed Bitcoin forks, but later new protocols with different…
