IOTA Research Summit 2019 IOTA Research Summit 2019
The IOTA research department recently gathered for one week of focused discussion and planning around some of the most critical aspects of the organizational roadmap, including Coordicide and attack analysis. This blog post summarizes the events, and offers some insights into the solutions and progress made during the conference. In total, eighteen members of the research team met in Barcelona, Spain during the second week of February. This was not the first time the research team has spent time together in person, but it was the first time doing so with Director of Research Moody Alam at the helm. As the team has grown and matured, Moody's oversight of the various teams and projects that comprise the research department has become a critical role. Setting defined goals, with specific project leaders and team members are critical to success. This recent meeting was the perfect opportunity to see how all the different moving parts of the department fit together. This post was first seen by us on 2019-02-21 22:21:08.

Qubic status update February 3rd 2019   IOTA Qubic status update February 3rd 2019 IOTA
Hey everyone, sorry for the small delay in getting this status update out. We will still call it the February 3rd status update because I did not have the heart to ask Sabri to redo this gorgeous image. Did you know that Sabri provides a fresh image for every status update He is responsible for most of the house style and doing such an amazing job at it. Funny in a way that the person responsible for our visuals is one of our least visible team members. Anyway, January was a month of steady progress. A number of components are coming together nicely and we are getting more and more community involvement. This post was first found by us on 2019-02-05 20:15:37.

IOTA Entangled Update   Jan. 22   IOTA IOTA Entangled Update Jan. 22 IOTA
As the New Year begins it is a great time to plan the future of Entangled. First, what is Entangled Entangled is a monorepo for all things Tangle that add functionality for operating IOTA in C/C++. If you would like to keep up to date with the project, the repo can be found and starred here: https://github.com/iotaledger/entangled Why make IOTA C-based The primary reason is our focus on the Internet of Things (IoT). Many of these small form-factor devices run on very efficient and small program sizes which are C-based. To make IOTA the leading Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) for IoT, it is a natural step for the Foundation to provide support for them. This information was retrieved by us on 2019-01-23 18:17:59.

IRI 1.6.0 with local snapshots out now! IRI 1.6.0 with local snapshots out now!
We know you have all been waiting for this for quite some time. Finally we have finished implementing local snapshots, a feature that allows you to run your node without storing the full transaction history. This means faster synchronization, lower system resource requirements, and no more waiting for global snapshots to prune the database. While Hans Moog implemented most of the logic behind this feature, reviewing and testing local snapshots has been a huge effort for the whole IRI team. IRI 1.6.0 is not just about local snapshots. We have been working on many other improvements as well, which we believe will make running a node a much better experience from now on! This information was obtained by us on 2019-01-11 19:53:10.
