Untangled Episode #10: Hannover Messe 2019

For the tenth episode of Untangled, we went to the Hannover Messe in Germany.

Out of the more than 6000 exhibitors at the industrial trade fair, several of them were using IOTA as their underlying data processing structure.

To hear more about it all, we talked to Thorsten Kroke, General Manager at the product standardization consortium, eCl@ss, and Jörg Nagel, Director of Technology and Operation at Neoception.

We also talked to Director of Partnerships in the IOTA Foundation, Holger Köther, about the different use cases and the future of IoT.

Running the IOTA CClient library on ESP32

CClient is an IOTA client library implemented in C. This is one of the modules in the entangled project. This post outlines how to run CClient in the ESP32 development framework.

Building the IOTA CClient project on ESP32

If you are new to ESP32, please follow this document to build and run a hello_world example. Below we describe the CClient build.

Step 1: checkout and initialize the project

This example project calls iota_client_get_node_info() to fetch node information and prints it out on the terminal.

$ git clone --recursive
$ cd iota_cclient_esp32
$ bash ./

Step 2: WiFi AP

Open source coordinator on Mainnet

Open Source Coordinator on Mainnet

Coordicide, the effort of removing the Coordinator from the IOTA networks, is well under way in its research phase. One step in the journey towards Coordicide is making the inner workings of the current network set-up fully transparent. We want to do that with an open-sourced version of the Coordinator running on Mainnet.

The open source Coordinator, called Compass, was originally released a few months back. One of its main functions was that it allowed anyone to set up a private network, run tests, or develop PoCs more easily than before.

Part of the plan was always to have the Coordinator

Explaining the Qubic Computation Model: part 3

In the first part of this series we have looked at a conceptual overview of the Abra specification, which describes the how data flow is achieved within the Qubic Computation Model. In the second part we used the Abra specification to start implementing Qupla, a higher level programming language for Qubic. We introduced Qupla’s most basic entities (trit vectors, look-up tables, and constants) and how they map to Abra. This third part will introduce how we can use functions and expressions to create Qupla programs.

Qupla functions and expressions

The basic entities that make up a Qupla program are (user-defined) trit vectors,
