Privacy aware IOTA ledger: Decentralized mixing and unlinkable IOTA transactions
April 17, 2019 8:37 AM IOTA is a distributed ledger technology for the Internet-of-Things (IoT) industry. The protocol distinguishes itself from existing distributed ledgers by being formed on a directed acyclic graph. To enable micro-transactions for smart devices, it uses a scalable approach for network growth and transaction confirmations. Being a public distributed ledger, the transactions on the ledger are completely transparent hence opening up the possibilities for linking and identification attacks. Different promising privacy enhancing techniques have been proposed for improving anonymity in distributed ledgers. However, many of the proposed approaches provide security guarantees only against Elliptic Curve Digital Signature (ECDSA) schemes and thus become incompatible with the IOTA ledger because IOTA uses quantum resilient hash-based signatures. While centralized solutions can still work with IOTA ledger for enhancing privacy, they are still proprietary and prone to single point of failures. We propose a novel decentralized mixing protocol for the IOTA ledger that incorporates a combination of decryption mixnets and multi-signatures. Our technique does not require any (trusted or accountable) third party and it is completely compatible with the IOTA protocol. Analysis of our results for this technique shows that the security and privacy are guaranteed even in the presence of malicious entities in the system. Our technique provides strong privacy to the IOTA ledger and the degree of anonymity it adds, protects entities against identification and linking attacks.

The transaction fees alone in Bitcoin blocks are worth more than block rewards for Bitcoin Cash miners
April 10, 2019 9:40 PM Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash have different strategies when it comes to payments. In Bitcoin, the block weight limit is kept relatively low in order to keep the cost of operating a full node at a manageable level. The idea is to use the Lightning Network for payments with the base blockchain acting as a sort of settlement layer. With Bitcoin Cash, there is a greater focus on cheap, on-chain payments today through the use of a larger block size limit at the cost of potentially making it more costly to participate in the system ? although in practice Bitcoin Cash blocks are usually around one-twentieth or less the size of a normal Bitcoin block due to a lack of adoption.

Vitalik Buterin: Ethereum to process 270,000 transactions per second using layer 2 "rollup" scaling
April 08, 2019 4:13 PM Vitalik recently presented his thoughts on Rollups and the problem of Data Availability as related to Layer 2 solutions in both Ethereum 1.0 and 2.0. His talk contains some fascinating constructions that will likely see further iterating from teams in the space. This a crucial area of research because trust-minimised blockchain scaling mechanisms are still sorely needed for projects looking to grow their userbase. If you have the time I recommend listening to the full talk. The foundational concepts that this talk builds on first surfaced in an August 2018 post by Vitalik, crediting ?availability engines? to Justin Drake. In September 2018, an ETHresearch post expanding on the topic received significant discussion. In January 2019 a collaboration between EF researchers and Matter Labs produced a proof of concept called Ignis on the Rinkeby testnet. Here?s the original post from the teams and a Trustnodes interview / demo.
