A developer’s vision of Qubic

Disclaimer: The information below is my own personal understanding of Q. This article is written to convey my ideas about how Q could be implemented from a developers mindset. Please feel free to discuss, improve upon and work with me to generate ideas and develop solutions. Also please bear with me because English is my 2nd language. Way-back 2010, I started developing apps to share with the world. But during those times, the tool and framework available does not cater my requirement to execute and complete my ideas.In…

A Q&A WITH YOSHIYUKI YAMAMOTO ON UNOPS COLLABORATION WITH IOTA

Following the announcement of UNOPS new partnership with IOTA, we caught up with our resident blockchain expert to hear more about the collaboration, and the exciting potential Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) could have for enhancing UNOPS operations.WHAT IS DISTRIBUTED LEDGER TECHNOLOGY?Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) uses independent computers (known as nodes) to record, share and synchronize transactions in their respective electronic ledgers – across institutions and geographies – as opposed to…

Identity of Things based on IOTA tangle.

While waiting for Jinn, that will allow micro IoT device to calculate quantum resistant signature of their transactions, I’ve been involved in an IoT project that need high level of security of many different aspects.IOTA already provides a powerful tool for publishing data on the tangle: Masked Authenticated Messaging or MAM.Unfortunately, MAM is perfect for all those situations where a single data source needs to securely publish data to many receivers.In those cases where data is provided by a single source…

Blockchain: a boon for logistics?

Logistics is one of the world’s biggest industries. It is the backbone of the world’s major manufacturing facilities, which depend on the movement of goods to the right place at the right time. Over the years, most industries have experienced rapid innovation – for example consumer electronics, automotive, aerospace, and pharmaceutical – yet logistics has typically tended to lag behind. Challenges in the logistics industry The logistics industry is currently facing the following key challenges:Too much paperwork: The…

Trinity Wallet Update – 11th June

With the launch of Mobile beta it makes sense to change the format of the weekly update. I’ll give a general summary of what the team has been working on over the last week.On mobile, attention has been on mitigating any pressing issues identified since beta release and finalising the remaining changes for the UI overhaul. Beta testers highlighted a number of minor security/privacy concerns; including the ability to screenshot seeds, failure to hide seeds from the app thumbnail when minimised and failure to hide…

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…
