Untangled Episode #5: Connecting Hardware Sensors with the Tangle

We are also talking to IOTA Ecosystem Director, Lewis Freiberg, on why the IOTA Foundation does not produce hardware, how the Foundation supports those who do and what it takes to get a grant from the IOTA Ecosystem Development Fund.

Qubic status update February 3rd 2019

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

This was a significant and extremely unfortunate event that, thanks to a collaborative effort from law enforcement and the IOTA community, is now being brought to justice.


From what we have learned and has been reported, we have pieced together the following sequence of events. On January 19, 2018, criminals

Trinity Update: Feb 1st

Last week we released Trinity Mobile 0.6.0 beta. This was a substantial step forward for the mobile version, including a number of considerable changes and improvements. The addition of node quorum vastly improves the wallet’s security when interfacing with the Tangle, by requiring a consensus between multiple nodes before a response is considered valid. The mobile UI has also undergone a complete UI overhaul with updated modals, fancy animations, and refinements throughout. Join the beta and try it out for yourself here.

In the last update we announced our plans to submit both Trinity Mobile and Desktop for a second audit. The
