IOTA Crypto Core FPGA 4th Progress Report
This is my 4th progress report. In case you missed the 3rd: link The third milestone has been finished! I was asked a lot to give an ELI5 about the project. So I try :) FPGA is an abbreviation for ?Field Programmable Gate Array?. Digital logic can be described in a hardware description language like VHDL or Verilog and synthesis-Tools can synthesize digital hardware out of these descriptions. You could see it this way: CPUs are executing programs. An FPGA can be configured to run e.g. CPUs which execute programs :) FPGAs often are used for prototyping hardware which could later be used for manufacturing ASICs (real chips). ASICs are a lot faster and need less energy but they are immensely expensive to manufacture (6 digit amount). And if something changed???for instance a new hashing algorithm???the chip would have to be manufactured completely new.

NEL notes NNS and Teemo updates; LightDB introduction in first April bi-weekly report
NewEconoLabs, a China-based NEO development community, has released its first bi-weekly report for April. The team noted the deployment of a new NNS contract alongside updates to its Teemo wallet and other projects. NEL?s decentralized domain name service, NNS, recently saw the addition of a new contract on both the NEO TestNet and MainNet. The contract is a ?reverse resolution? service that allows the address of a transfer recipient to be resolved to its bound NNS address during the transfer. This is hoped to provide an easy way for users to identify the owner of an address and avoid errors. The feature has been added to the NEL web wallet, and the team is currently aiming to bring it to the Teemo extension and O3 wallets.

The State Of Lisk Report - Ep 45
LiskHQ introduced a new LIP (Lisk Improvement Process) proposal along with a blog post for a Byzantine fault tolerance (BFT) consensus algorithm for Lisk. This latest LIP proposes to change the consensus algorithm used in Lisk by introducing a mechanism that will allow delegates to vote on the correct Block at every height and implementing a new fork choice rule. By doing this the consensus protocol will achieve Byzantine fault tolerance (BFT) and provides block finality guarantees. This will mean that a Block can never be reverted after it has been created by the forging delegate. This step to create Block finality and a robust consensus is required before LiskHQ can introducing side chains and communication between different chains in Lisk.

IOTA (MIOTA) Based ProductID Unveiled by Things Labs
