The ELI5 for ELI5.
Thank you for this. Loads of full nodes coming being set up which is great news.
Is there any stats around how much this has benefited iota the last month?
L O A D S of N O D E S
PM your info. I'lll add you to my nodes.
UEFA Champions League wallet?
This is the UCL wallet for anyone asking. Charles Varley is one of the main developers.
CLARIFICATION: This is just approval for one of our private alpha builds. Beta is not ready yet.
I dont see whats the bug fuss about this new UCL wallet as their current wallet works fine for me. What we need is compatibility with the ledger
IOTA is the revolutionary new CryptoCurrency built on Tangle (read: Whitepaper). A blockless distributed ledger which is scalable, lightweight and for the first time ever makes it possible to transfer value without any fees.
You can type iota --buy as a comment reply for information on buying IOTA
Amazon AWS IoT Lead Designer/Former IBM Joanna Pena-Bickley Tweets Interest in IOTA
This is absolutely huge. Well done IOTA team!
EDIT: This is the the Amazon AWS IoT Design Lead, she likes IOTA. That is all this tweet means. It implies no partnership, partner, collaboration, deal, team or anything like that. It does however mean, she has a favourable opinion of IOTA and something can happen when or if the time comes, or if IOTA decides to reach out.
I've got nothing but positive things to say about IOTA, but yeah, don't get too worked up about this tweet.
I agree with you, but this is a clear cut case with no blurred lines. She's the Amazon AWS IoT Head, she likes IOTA. That is all. It implies no partnership, partner, collaboration, deal, team or anything like that. It does however mean, she has a favourable opinion of IOTA and something can happen when the time comes.
I find it funny that all of these posts now need to come with a disclaimer, "NOT A PARTNERSHIP". So much damage was done by people nitpicking and sensationalizing things.
This is something that should be blown up. The other stuff that's posted here like IOTA going on Coinbase etc. isn't the stuff that should be blown up. This is real. She's the IoT lead designer for Amazon AWS and she's talking about it in a personal (non-company) capacity. That much is clear. If you don't support IOTA, GTFO. If any decisions are to be made, they'll go through her and she is interested (in a personal capacity).
Waaaait... she is totally legit. I went to UW for grad school and have a ton of friends at Amazon, some are mutual connections with her.
She's only worked there for 2 months so this doesn't look like a direct partnership/endorsement, but she definitely is the head of design of IoT at amazon...
I think public opinions of obvious industry subject matter experts like Dr Werner @ Fujitsu and Mrs Pena @ AWS legitimizes the efforts of the Foundation and can put to rest any sort of conversation that tries to put IOTA in the same league as some of the vaporware that is on the CMC Top 20.
Second, she makes a very good point. The IOT space is going to be shared by many big corporations and to maximize profits they will have to cooperate with each other. If let's say Amazon came up with an IOT protocol, then Microsoft wouldn't want to use it because it would be like giving up their leadership to a competitor.
The Foundation fills a perfect gap here. It's a Non-For-Profit, fully incorporated in a legitimate country like Germany. Any of these companies can yield to use the protocol of this impartial third party without losing any face.
Her quote: "I think the brilliance of them is that offers us transparency into a system that was riddled with lack of transparency & third parties."
Keep HODL'ing my friends, this ride has not even left the station.
For sure. I'm seeing it as that important people in the IoT space know of IOTA. She posts about a lot of things she likes on her twitter.
Her talk of IOTA is obviously positive, with a notable lack of much other cryptocurrency talk, so this is good. I didn't mean to even suggest the P word.
this doesn't look like a direct partnership/endorsement
I agree, and this is an important thing to remember in here. It's interesting, but let's no go crazy :)
MIT has never said anything negative about IOTA. Neha Narula's case is a case of a person who misused her title to give weight to her defamations.
Ok this is good!!
Very well written!
It's just a matter of time until informations like this will be all over the sites & blogs. We have to go through the unpleasant part now...
Very IOTA related article! How Fear Is Being Used to Manipulate Cryptocurrency Markets
Here's a series of steps I came up with to solve this FUD issue quickly and permanently, I hope the developers read this and take at least some of it to heart:
Acknowledge your mistakes Most of the time, people just want to hear that you're sorry, that you did something wrong and you will attempt to fix it. This is PR 101. Apologize about the wallet, slow transactions, spam, reclaim - whatever the issue is, even if you personally believe it is not your fault.
Give a timeline of when things will be fixed and make it visible Tell us when you're working on a non-third party wallet. Tell us what the Tangle snapshot will solve, when, how and whether there's any chance this may happen again. When can we expect the coordinator to go offline etc. These questions can't be ignored or answered in parts on different media (half on Twitter, half on Slack - put it all in one place for everyone to see)
Stop false hype, discourage it I'm talking about things like Q for which hype was manufactured. Eventually the hype becomes so big it becomes a poisoned chalice and nothing will please anyone
Be professional and courteous Being cool and edgy is one thing, but unprofessional comments are like poison to industry leaders, fans, investors etc. Hire a PR team and muzzle come-from-beyond for a while (jk)
Show your progress on fixing issues which BREAK IOTA and fix them quickly
These are my opinions. Thank you for listening.
Half of the issues you just named can be attributed to the fact that IOTA is basically still in beta. Buy in next year when the price is sky high if you can't wait for those things. For now, realize that it's a new technology and is still being developed.
Great article! Thank you Bobby Azarian! -- "IOTA founders Dominik Schiener and David Sonstebo tried to set the record straight numerous times in places like the comments section of the Squawker article and on Reddit, but almost no one saw these explanations, as it had become virtually impossible to find the signal amongst the noise". -- This is the exactly the problem I am facing! -- There are so many beebs and boobs and snippets, very often without any sources here on Reddit, and on Twitter, and on Slack, and on all the other social media that I am losing track of the relevant! -- "Those who have the time should actively try to bring clarity to the discussion when they have reliable information or insight. If the crypto-community can make these efforts collectively, order will emerge from all the chaos, and a body of more reliable and consistent information regarding distributed digital currencies will attract new investors and enthusiasts who are eager to help bring about the impending global blockchain revolution." -- Dear Dom and David, PLEASE DO SO! -- Please have an official IOTA sub-website, where you and the other Devs post YOUR news and your news only! Nothing else. -- No irrelevant comments from X, Y & Z. -- Please put a date and a time to it! -- And not a misleading "5 days ago" or "3 hours ago" which is confusing every single time, when people post such jpgs. -- Such a website can be checked and quoted and is easy to find. -- I am so tired of all the tiny snippets and the related puzzle game. -- Please give me an IOTA Dev Info URL where I can find you! -- The entire community will THANK YOU ... and you will bring order to the chaos. -- Thank you!
Well, it is written by an published neuroscientist. I guess the FOMO-FUD cycle lives on. (Btw, read the fkin article.)
Really really great article. Unfortunetaly Reddit is the breeding ground for speculation, FUD and FOMO. The people that needs this article the most is those who hang out here. Hope they can do some introspection.
Trumpian, nice touch.
I never understood why the microsoft fud caught on. The relationship was clear, so who cares what people were calling it. The reality is that 30+ companies, many which are fortune 1000, are actively playing around with the IOTA network.
What other cryptocurrency even comes close to that? ETH has tons of development, but it's by other start ups and solves different problems.
Ripple is the only other network that is making significant headway into proof of concept work with already functioning companies (banks).
It's hilarious to think that LTC can 4x with almost no news about the coin being adopted or LTC developing a solution to scalability problems that all blockchain currencies face... and yet Charlie questions what to call IOTA's relationship with MICROSOFT.
Just hilarious, and sort of sad. Getting in this early is why there is so much money to be made in Cryptocurrency, but it's also a shit show at times.
ppl just organised to put iota down because they feel threatened by the disruptive technology iota puts forward! SAD
Great read. Good job. Is this posted in /sub/cryptocurrency also?
Maybe stop teasing announcements if you don't want people asking for announcements.
yeah people just want to make short term profit but long time hodlers don't care :)
I have heard Iota will team up with Hello Kitty to counter the crypto Kitties
Well, if you get everyone so mad for the whole of december you can expect them to get impatient.
I'm not worried or anything but i'm also very (obessively) curious about what's coming and how the market will react.
Still upcoming: Wallets, Q, Congestion fix, Roadmpa, Curl update
I only understand “bonjour”.
No, only Excel

When this post is 12 hours old
I like when someone knows how to deal with internet and different time zones
I never said that.
Why are people expecting this much from a Meetup event...?
I am unable to post this in /sub/cryptocurrency probably because of my account age, so if someone wants to reap potential karma (more likely hate) go for it.
Edit: I suggest this template because they are not an IOTA sub, so the title has to mention IOTA "When this post is x hours old the Iota, Microsoft and Bosch meetup stream is about to begin"
