Welcome Rajiv Shah to the IOTA Foundation
Rajiv Shah is a software engineer with experience in cross-platform mobile software development. His fascination with programming was sparked by work with Scratch and Lego League in elementary and middle school. After learning the basics of Java in eighth grade, he became interested in a wide range of technological fields, including machine learning, robotics, and cybersecurity, to name a few. Once he graduates from high school this year, he plans to pursue a degree in Computational Data Sciences from Penn State University. After discovering IOTA in 2017, Rajiv wanted to contribute to the code behind it. He began working on the Trinity wallet later that year under the guidance of Navin Ramachandran, Charlie Varley, and the rest of the Trinity team, and quickly became familiar with the code and underlying frameworks. Since then, he has helped fix bugs and add new features to the app. He can?t wait to see what the future holds for Trinity and IOTA. This data was retrieved by us on March 08, 2019 2:41 PM.

MAM Update: C Libraries and Release IOTA
As you may know, Masked Authenticated Messaging (MAM) is a second layer data communication protocol which adds functionality to emit and access an encrypted data stream over the Tangle (IOTA?s distributed ledger). IOTA?s consensus protocol adds integrity to these message streams. Given these properties, MAM fulfills an important need in industries where integrity and privacy meet. In IOTA, a user can publish a message at any time. They only need to conduct a small amount of Proof of Work (PoW) to allow the data to propagate through the network (this is necessary to prevent spamming of the network). If nodes are listening for the channel ID (i.e. address) in real time, the message (spread through the network) will be received by a subscriber when it reaches the subscriber?s node.

IOTA opens Cordinatorless Testnet!
We are happy to announce the launch of znet, the first iteration of the Coordinator-less testnet. This testnet has in fact been alive for several weeks, but we would like to officially open it up to community participation and contribution. To that end, we invite community members to join the discussion on Discord, to check out the live visualization of the znet Tangle, to contribute issues and code to the CLIRI Github repo, and of course: to run CLIRI nodes and join the network. Let?s take a step back and discuss why we need yet another testnet, and what makes CLIRI special. CLIRI stands for ?Coo-less IRI?. At its core, it is a fork of IRI, with all Coo-related components removed. Its purpose is to provide a testbed for running a Coordinator-less IOTA network. This is a necessary first step towards understanding the challenges that a Coo-less mainnet will one day face. This article was first seen by us on March 05, 2019 11:58 AM.

Qubic Update March
February turned out to be an even shorter month than it normally already is. First, our previous update was a few days late, and in addition some people finally took some well-deserved vacation days left over from last year. So this will be a shorter status update than usual. We?ll quickly go over the sub-projects: The focus this month was on speeding up, reducing memory requirements, and stabilizing the core, resulting in the 0.5 release. In addition a great web GUI was created that simplifies administration and configuration of Ict nodes enormously. If you want to know more about Ict, I highly recommend the presentation that Lukas gave at the IOTA Barcelona meetup. His presentation starts at the 30:00 mark, but you will find that the entire video is loaded with lots of interesting IOTA stuff. This share was first found by us on March 03, 2019 1:48 PM.

Sorry :) Here is the first part in case you missed it: https://medium.com/@punpck/iota-crypto-core-fpga-1st-progress-report-caebe1dac579 In the last report I included an evaluation of the Troika hashing algorithm and came to the conclusion that it?s not running very well on binary CPU architectures???but I also wrote that there certainly is room for optimizations. Reference implementations have to be clear and understandable but not necessarily very efficient. A ?silent hero? (he didn?t reveal his identity) managed to optimize Troika significantly???he managed to get a gain of x11.63 on my Cortex M1 which is very impressive.

Updated article on how to securely hold IOTA, adding a quick guide on how to move from Light Wallet to Trinity. As with the old version of the post, ideas and suggestions are very welcome!
Subscribe to the Altcoin Trading newsletter. (Newsletter Archive) IOTA is a transactional and data transfer layer aiming at the Internet of Things. It uses a distributed ledger called Tangle which scales better than Blockchain - the more it is used the more efficient it gets. The tangle ledger is based on distributed technology called DAG (directed acyclic graph). Each transaction forms its own ?block? and is essentially verified by itself. In order to put your transaction through you have to verify two other randomly chosen older transactions in the network. This is done with help of a very simple version of proof-of-work but the effort the POW algo needs to execute is so small that the transaction cost is essentially zero.

IOTA (MIOTA) ICO Rating, Reviews and Details | ICOholder Select widget Notification icon
IOTA is a revolutionary new, next generation public distributed ledger that utilizes a novel invention, called a ?Tangle?, at its core. The Tangle is a new data structure based on a Directed Acyclic Graph. As such it has no Blocks, no Chain and also no Miners. Because of this radical new architecture, things in IOTA work quite differently compared to other Blockchains. A Tangle is a Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) Attention. There is a risk that unverified members are not actually members of the team IOTA is traded like a traditional cryptocurrency, but it?s really meant to host machine-to-machine transactions in the Internet of Things. It?s aiming for a huge market, but that market requires precision, as human lives are at stake. It?s not going alone, though ? IOTA has high-profile strategic partnerships in place. MIOTA is the official coin of IOTA, a new cryptocurrency designed for IoT efficiency. IoT is a huge market that includes everything from consumer devices to enterprises and entire cities. Several security vulnerabilities have been addressed in IOTA, and it?s unclear how stable and secure the platform will be when implemented in a live environment. IOTA has no miners/mining, and blocks, transaction limits, and fees have been removed to accommodate M2M transactions. Because of its focus on IoT, IOTA has a fighting chance at differentiating itself in the crypto market. The team does spark fiery debates in tech circles and has made some questionable decisions, but the IoT market is one of the largest opportunities for crypto-technology ? if they get it right, IOTA could one day be the Google of little bitty things talking to each other. Or it could be Skynet. Either way, IOTA is a crypto to give an iota of thought to in coming years. Should you buy MIOTA?

Iota | Iota Cryptocurrency | Iota Value | Iota Charts | Info.binanance.com
IOTA is an open-source distributed ledger protocol that goes 'beyond blockchain' through its core invention of the blockless ?Tangle?. The IOTA Tangle is a quantum-proof Directed Acyclic Graph, with no fees on transactions & no fixed limit on how many transactions can be confirmed per second in the network. Instead, throughput grows in conjunction with activity in the network; the more activity, the faster the network. Unlike blockchain architecture, IOTA has no separation between users and validators; rather, validation is an intrinsic property of using the ledger, thus avoiding centralization. IOTA is initially focused on serving as the backbone of the emerging Internet-of-Things (IoT). This article was obtained by us on January 17, 2019 2:58 PM.
