Difficulties of technology adoption, an overview of technology innovation, and the IOTA approach
A model for thinking about competition among projects
IOTA is working on a new security project that'll let any device safely house its own wallet. But it goes much farther than that. Discover the history of defensive structures and learn how IOTA Foundation might just be building the modern equivalent.
The first step toward IOTA 2.0 has arrived. Now, all it takes is the completion of the honey making process to achieve Coordicide.
Crossing the Chasm
Institutional custody and regulatory clarity are the two most important aspects for adoption. Dan Simerman talks about how IOTA is approaching each one

Software developers working on their IOTA passion projects are an extremely rare entity. Let's put IOTA+ into the spotlight
The Sands of Time: Part II
Part II in a series of pieces attempting to dig up chunks of history and relate those chunks to the present IOTA experience. Expect Part II of the series to build on Part I by laying a fairly rigorous groundwork in order to enable proper payoff of later pieces in the series.
Evolution of Journalism
A walk through the history of spoken language, written language, news, and mass media, all related back to HelloIOTA
Verifiable Delay Functions
Part of the IOTA Foundation research team that’s based in Berlin submitted a paper to arxiv this month. The topic is verifiable delay functions and their potential role in denial of service attacks in IoT environments.
Building Trust in the Modern Age
Trust between two parties in an interaction has always been pivotal in every exchange. Whether it was hunter gatherers exchanging berries for venison, or it was Joseph Bonaparte and Marquess Cornwallis signing the Treaty of Amiens to end the French Revolutionary Wars, each person has to trust the other to keep their word if the transaction is going to happen.
The Sands of Time: Part I
This is part I in a series of pieces attempting to dig up chunks of history and relate those chunks to the present IOTA experience. Expect the first few parts of the series to lay fairly rigorous groundwork in order to enable proper payoff of later pieces in the series.
A Cauldron of Colors
The upcoming Chrysalis implementation of IOTA will enable numerous technical improvements. Cleaner code libraries leading to easier developer contributions, faster and more accurate transaction finality leading to “production readiness”, reusable addresses for human ease-of-use, and much more. We’ve covered all of the details of Chrysalis in a previous article.
Smoothing the Learning Curve
Gone are the days of IRI and a basic GUI light wallet. With the project’s scope now in clear view, it’s imperative that the learning curve remains smooth enough for newcomers.
Back to the Basics
We’ve been explaining the foundations of IOTA for years now. Since it’s so different from blockchains, newcomers to the IOTA space have been well served by extra-careful explanations.
Identity for a Digital Age
Despite the world being in the throes of a pandemic, human ingenuity and resolve continues to shine. Our cities might be locked down, yet we press on.
Chicken or Egg
The “chicken or egg”, also known as the causality dilemma, has been around for millennia. Aristotle first raised the idea as a rhetorical question in 4th century B.C., an idea that would be thrust into the corpus of modern philosophy 400 years later by Plutarch’s The Symposiacs.
The “fourth industrial revolution” encompasses smart manufacturing, smart cities, and the industrial internet of things. Residing at the heart of smart manufacturing, and arguably the vanguard of Industry 4.0 as a whole, are “Digital Twins”
