Local modifiers in the Tangle by Serguei Popov

Abstract As of today, there are many cryptocurrency systems around. They mostly share one common feature: all participants of the network interpret the same ledger in the same way. In this paper, we introduce the idea of local modifiers: the nodes of the network can interact with the ledger in different ways, depending on various kinds of information locally available to them. We then argue that such an approach permits to increase the security and the scalability of the Tangle.Read MoreReferences M. Menshikov,…

SSL/TLS for IRI: Using HTTPS with the Upcoming Trinity Wallet

With the Trinity mobile beta approaching, it is important that node owners are suitably prepared. Mobile app stores require that all data traffic is encrypted with SSL/TLS. If you’re not sure what SSL and TLS do, here’s a quick video to explain it:What does SSL/TLS mean for Trinity? Mandatory SSL/TLS is necessary in Trinity for a few reasons. First, Apple requires App Transport Security (ATS) to be enabled in all apps submitted to the App Store. Developers who submit apps without ATS must justify their decision to…

TWO – IoT waste management with IOTA

Taipei city government has officially approved a proof of concept (POC) to be integrated into the first three floors of the Taipei city hall building. Effective immediately, TWO IOT will install IoT sensors that will measure the fill levels of their waste bins in real time. These IoT sensors will use the Tangle network to store the data collected by the sensors to a secure and tamperproof ledger. Biilabs inc. will provide the blockchain engineering services and enable TWO IOT to use IOTA and show the world, that real world…

Chatbots in the Localflow

Today smartphones can be filled with an endless number of applications, Android, IOS and other mobile OS gave the opportunity to a lot of developers to build third party applications and monetize their work. “App Store was opened on July 10, 2008, with an initial 500 applications available. As of January 2017, the store features over 2.2 million apps.” — wikipedia Now we are in the verge of another disruptive innovation that will expand possibilities of online services for any smartphone user. Chatbots, artificial…

IOTA Will Power Kontakt.io’s Location Solution to Enable Secure Sale and Sharing of Telemetry Data

Today, Kontakt.io, the leading IoT (Internet of Things) location platform provider, announced a collaboration with the IOTA Foundation, a non-profit open-source foundation behind IOTA, to integrate IOTA’s next generation distributed ledger technology with Kontakt.io’s location platform.

Integrating physical devices with IOTA

A beginners tutorial on integrating physical devices with the IOTA tangle using Python. Introduction This beginner’s tutorial is a simple, yet powerful demonstration of using the IOTA protocol for making payments and receiving services from a physical device. The goal of this tutorial is to demonstrate how we can build a simple power circuit that can be switched ON/OFF based on the current balance of a given IOTA address. We will be using an internet connected Raspberry PI together with the Python programming language to…

IOTA Pearl-Diver (PoW) Core in VHDL für Raspberry Pi

Updates: 2018-05-17: It’s alive *muahaha* It’s working fine and reaching about 14.5MH/s2018-05-07: Some optimisations … Reaching 12.9MH/s on Altera DE12018-05-04: Installation instructions for Raspberry Pi added2018-05-03: Major core optimizations – reaching now about 12MH/s. Introduction IOTA PoW needs a lot of computational power which makes sending transactions on smaller microcontrollers (like ARM) very slow. One of the main reasons is that the innerst loop of Curl-P81 can’t be computed…

Tangle — the missing link for IoT and Web 3.0

To understand what Tangle is and why we need it, we need to know two concepts beforehand. They are Distributed Ledgers and Blockchains. For those of you who are aware of what distributed ledgers and Blockchains are, you can skip the next two sections, others, follow on and you would find a brief introduction to both of these concepts. Distributed Ledgers Ledgers Anybody who owns a bank account would be aware of ledgers. A ledger is a book or a computer file which keeps track of the economic transactions. Right now, these…
