Qubic status update June 3rd 2019

Happy first anniversary, Qubic! We’re celebrating one year of Qubic status updates with the new simplified design that Sabri is introducing to our header image.

This year has been quite the roller coaster ride, with lots of reading, research, coding, testing, restarting from scratch, one step forward, minus two steps back, hours of staring at code looking for bugs that aren’t there, meetings, brainstorm sessions, and trying to decode CfB’s brain waves. Haven’t had this much fun in decades!

The results we’ve accomplished are looking good. We now have a lot of basic IXIs that are necessary to put the Qubic puzzle together. We

Untangled Episode #13: Fraunhofer Platooning

In the thirteenth episode of Untangled we are exploring a use case of platooning.

Jonas Brügmann, Nicolas Ruhland and Matthias Babel from the Fraunhofer Blockchain Lab of the Bayreuth University has developed a business model for vehicles to organize themselves in a platoon.

Only the leader of the platoon will be controlled by a person, while the rest of the vehicles are driving autonomously. By using the Tangle, the platoon leader can get compensated in real-time for the leading efforts.

Listen to the episode here to learn more.

Simply track the provenance and authenticity of your shirt

ALYX, EVRYTHNG, Avery Dennison and IOTA are coming together to deliver the collaboration needed to drive supply chain transparency forward.

But for the consumer it is still impossible to learn about the provenance of your specific garment and most information is based on a mix of marketing and corporate sustainability reports — as opposed to transparent information. Thus, it is with excitement that the IOTA Foundation is delivering our piece to the puzzle in this

IOTA at the Texas Smart Cities Summit

We’re happy to announce that we have accepted the opportunity to sponsor the first inaugural Texas Smart Cities Summit, and will be hosting a working group session and more while we’re there. We’d also like to thank Austin CityUP, a smart city consortium of companies, organizations, and individuals collaborating to advance smart city initiatives in Texas for the chance to collaborate with them and for their invitation to the Summit.

This event is going to provide a fundamental jumping point for the state of Texas, and as a result the United States, by bringing together thought leaders, policy makers, designers and developers

Integrating the IOTA token for businesses, large token holders and other large-scale uses

In order for IOTA’s vision for the machine economy to really thrive, all sorts of people and organizations will need to be able to easily acquire and manage the IOTA token.

Current methods to acquire IOTA tokens are restricted to what we might call ‘individual’ users. These are individuals, like you and me, who are not confined by organizational processes or government regulation. For the individual user, acquiring IOTA tokens is as easy as logging onto a digital asset exchange, buying IOTA, and sending it to our open source wallet Trinity.

While simple, this workflow may not be appropriate for organizations, liquidity providers, or
