Nyzo: addressing arguments against proof-of-diversity and early entrants
In this article I will address and discuss the arguments against the Proof of Diversity consensus protocol and the influence of early entrants on the status quo of network diversity. It is a topic that often sparks heavy debate in regards to new cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin being no exception. I will start off by sketching a timeline of events that have led up to the current state of the Nyzo project and why I believe that there can only be one Nyzo, as there can only be one Bitcoin. As with Bitcoin, there is a certain technological advancement and a shift of perspective when looking at the Nyzo project. As with Bitcoin in the beginning, there are the naysayers who don't believe that the project will succeed, there are the early entrants who made a bet based on the limited amount of information available at the time and there are those who have yet to find out what proof of diversity or Nyzo is.


Sovereignty through mathematics CHAPTER NINE - MONEY AS AN AMPLIFIER
Money can be viewed as many things. It is often described acting as a medium of exchange, a store of value and a unit of account. As discussed earlier, one can boil down the definition even further. At its very core, money can be defined as a linguistic tool for expressing value, or even just gratitude, to another person, through space and time. From this perspective, money acts as an amplifier of a person's personality. If you're altruistic by nature, suddenly having lots of money won't make you less generous, but rather enable you to express your personality in more ways. Unfortunately, in a cultural environment such as the one we live in now, credit is cheap and economic incentives are skewed. Impulsive, irrational financial decisions in all segments of society are dictating all of our lives. If we didn't have inflation, in other words if we had sound money, we would be incentivized to save rather than spend. Sustainability would come naturally to us. The lack of sound money also affects the impact money has on our personalities, and its effectiveness as a personality amplifier. Sound money would allow for more honesty and more real solutions to more real problems.

Coordicide - The next step
Since its inception blockchain has been discussed both in terms of the future possibilities, as well as the limiting factors that hold it back. High transaction fees, centralization, scalability limitations and power consumption are the main challenges that limit the technology from reaching its promised potential. IOTA Foundation, a non-profit foundation focused on distributed ledger technology (DLT) and open-source ecosystem development, will change this in its most significant announcement to date... IOTA's unique network moves beyond traditional blockchains to become the world's first network to become fully decentralized with zero fees and the ability to scale to thousands of transactions per second, thus eliminating all of the current issues with blockchain's structure. And, fulfilling the promise of a distributed ledger technology that can be used in real-world applications for both enterprise and IoT. Today IOTA announces it's Coordicide solution for the removal of the Coordinator, a breakthrough step towards becoming the world's first scalable and fully-decentralized distributed ledger technology. The planned protocol upgrade provides a new, decentralized mechanism for securing the IOTA network. With this upgrade IOTA will be the first DLT to solve three fundamental problems with blockchain technology: high fees, scaling and centralization.

IOTA Announces Coordicide Solution
With the launch of the Coordicide website we are proud to unveil our blueprint for the Coordinator's removal a momentous step towards realizing IOTA's promise as the first decentralized and scalable DLT. The website offers a detailed introduction to the challenge of scaling DLT. Those more familiar with these technical challenges can jump right into the main content a description of the building blocks that make up our solution, and the features and strengths of a post-Coordinator Tangle. Of course, we have also included our technical papers, and encourage you to delve into them. It is both exciting and humbling to have achieved our current level of progress in such a short space of time. Indeed our first research summit (ReSum) was held in Barcelona only in February of this year. The maturation of the IOTA Foundation has been a critical factor in our recent successes. In November of last year, we announced the formation of the IOTA Research Council, comprising Prof. Bill Buchanan, Prof. Robert Shorten, our director of research Moody Alam and co-founder Serguei Popov. The team's sole focus is now on actualizing the ideas presented on the website a goal we believe to be eminently achievable.
