Ik ben zelf niet van het opstarten van nieuwe draadjes. Die eer laat ik liever aan anderen. Echter valt mij op dat IOTA nog geen eigen draadje kent. Bijzonder merkwaardig want de koers is in 2 dagen 90% gestegen. Qua marketcap is IOTA momenteel de 7e coin. Aankopen gaat via Bitfinex, althans 3 maanden gelden waren zij de enige.

Iota Foundation test marktplaats voor iot-data met grote bedrijven.

De in Duitsland gevestigde Iota Foundation heeft een virtuele marktplaats geopend waar partijen gegevens kunnen verhandelen die afkomstig zijn van verschillende internet-of-things-apparaten, zoals sensoren.

In een aankondiging schrijft de organisatie dat verschillende bedrijven aan het project deelnemen, waaronder Microsoft, Deutsche Telekom, Fujitsu en Enexis. Het is de bedoeling dat ze de komende twee maanden deelnemen aan de marktplaats en hun gegevens ter beschikking stellen. Over de komende weken moeten er onder meer proof of concept-applicaties uitkomen die meer toepassingen van de marktplaats illustreren. Aan het einde van de periode wil de Iota Foundation een rapport publiceren met zijn bevindingen. De marktplaats is inmiddels online, maar is niet altijd even goed bereikbaar.

Het idee achter het project is dat er grote hoeveelheden 'connected' apparaten zijn die data produceren. Die wordt momenteel vaak niet benut, hoewel deze van waarde kan zijn voor bepaalde organisaties. De marktplaats moet deze gegevens ontsluiten en handel daarin faciliteren. Volgens de Iota Foundation is het project in de maak sinds 2015.

In dat jaar werd ook de Iota-cryptocurrency in het leven geroepen, die de basis vormt van het huidige systeem. Daarbij wordt gebruikgemaakt van een digitaal grootboek, oftewel ledger, met de naam Tangle. In een whitepaper over de techniek staat dat dit een zogenaamde directed acyclic graph is die een alternatief moet vormen voor de blockchain. Het verschil met die techniek is dat Tangle geen transactiekosten kent, doordat de voorwaarde is dat een transactie twee voorgaande transacties valideert. Daarom is het niet nodig dat dit door miners wordt gedaan, zoals bij een blockchain het geval is. Coinmarketcap plaatst de Iota-cryptovaluta op de achtste plaats als het gaat om waarde.

Blockchain network IOTA teams up with Cisco, Volkswagen, others on data marketplace - November 28, 2017

EW YORK (Reuters) - IOTA, an open-source blockchain network, has teamed up with some of the biggest global corporate names led by Cisco Systems Inc, Volkswagen AG, and Samsung Group to launch what is aimed to be a secure marketplace for data, IOTA co-founder David Sønstebø said on Tuesday.

Blockchain is a digital ledger of transactions that underpinned the first crypto-currency bitcoin. It has gained worldwide prominence due to its perceived usefulness in recording and keeping track of assets across all industries.

“The data marketplace is a completely separate project that simply utilizes the underlying IOTA protocol,” said Sønstebø in emailed responses to Reuters.

IOTA is headquartered in Berlin.

China’s Huawei group, a multinational networking and telecommunications company, is also part of the data marketplace project, IOTA said.

The project aims to create a market for data that companies can buy and sell.

IOTA said more than 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are generated daily and are increasing exponentially on a monthly basis. However, more than 99 percent of this data is wasted and lost to the void because there is currently no ability for owners to sell or share this data in a secure fashion.

“Any kind of data can be monetized,” Sønstebø said. “If you have a weather station collecting wind, temperature, humidity, and barometric data, for instance, you can sell that to an entity that is doing climatic research.”

As soon as data is put onto IOTA’s decentralized ledger, it is distributed to countless nodes or the computers that connect to the blockchain network, ensuring that it is impossible to tamper with the data, Sønstebø said.

Each of IOTA’s partners on the marketplace project will provide data within their sector.

“The goal is to enable a very diverse and open data marketplace...which incentivizes a free flow of data between entities,” Sønstebø said.

The IOTA network has been live since 2016, the IOTA co-founder said, in an earlier interview with Reuters.

It did a crowdfunding event in 2015, so that people could support the project, raising more than 1,300 bitcoins, he said.

“IOTA is kind of the first distributed ledger that goes beyond the blockchain,” Sønstebø said.

“We got rid of the blocks and we got rid of the chains, which has resulted in getting rid of the major pain points or limitations of the blockchain such as fees, scalability, and centralization.”

A little-known digital currency surges 70% after teaming up with firms like Microsoft
4:21 AM ET Fri, 1 Dec 2017 | 01:49

- Cryptocurrency IOTA is now the fifth-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization
- IOTA Foundation, a German non-profit firm that oversees the virtual currency, said last week it has partnered with big tech firms on a data marketplace

A digital currency has added more than $3 billion to its market value after the firm behind it said it was teaming up with a number of big tech firms, including Microsoft and Samsung on a "data marketplace."

Called IOTA, the cryptocurrency saw a spike on Sunday evening, rallying just over 70 percent in the last 24 hours, according to data from industry website Coinmarketcap. Its price soared to an all-time high of $2.54 at 8:29 a.m. London time, up 71 percent from Sunday's price of $1.48. It is now the fifth-largest digital asset by market capitalization, dethroning altcoin Dash.

The rally followed an announcement by the IOTA Foundation, a German non-profit firm that oversees the virtual currency, last Tuesday, that it had partnered with the likes of Microsoft, Samsung and Fujitsu on a blockchain-based marketplace that lets them sell data.

David Sonstebo, IOTA's co-founder and CEO, said data is "the new oil," and that the marketplace project is letting firms sell data to incentivize them to share this data that would otherwise be wasted.

"At present, up to 99 percent of this precious data gathered is lost to the void," he told CNBC in an email. "IOTA incentivize sharing of data through its zero fee transactions and by ensuring data integrity for free on the decentralized distributed ledger."

He added that the marketplace is currently a pilot project, and that examples of data being shared included weather and air quality data.

IOTA 'a sleeping giant'

Sonstebo said that the cryptocurrency's surge in price was due to its approach to blockchain technology and partnerships with established firms.

"IOTA's seemingly 'out of nowhere' explosive growth can be traced back to the fact that it has been somewhat of a sleeping giant," Sonstebo said.

"IOTA has resolved the three major issues of blockchain — fees, scaling limitations and centralization — and built up real-world partnerships and projects with world-leading companies since 2015."

Sonstebo added that the cryptocurrency's growth was also owed to its increased publicity.

"Unlike the overwhelming majority of projects in this space, IOTA has not done any paid promo, so now that there's a steady stream of these large news stories the major technological advantages become known to the wider audience," he said.

"I believe this is the reason for the rally, as well as the fact that IOTA just entered China and Korea, which are naturally huge markets, meaning a lot of new people buying."

'Blockless' blockchain

A blockchain is a massive, decentralized database that records cryptocurrency transactions. Its original use-case was as the ledger for all bitcoin transactions.

But IOTA's open-source blockchain platform differs to mainstream blockchain networks which use encrypted "blocks" to record those transactions.

Instead the firm's digital ledger, inspired by internet of things technology, is "blockless," and allows users to make transactions on the network for free.

Bitcoin, the world's largest cryptocurrency, has been faced with several splits this year due to frustration over the speed and cost of transactions. Users currently have to pay bitcoin miners a transaction fee to add transactions to the blockchain.

People within the bitcoin community have been pushing for an upgrade to the blockchain to increase block size and speed up the process of mining.

Although the upgrade was shelved in November, some went ahead with the creation of a new bitcoin offshoot called bitcoin diamond.

Het 'verdienmodel' van IOTA is een groot raadsel voor mij en het is ook volstrekt onduidelijk wat IOTA met cryptovaluta te maken heeft en helemaal waarom de IOTA iets te maken heeft met 'sensordata'.

IOTA Doing Big Things as Microsoft Partnership AnnouncedP
December 3, 2017 By Sam Bourgi

IOTA has been on a tear as of late, with prices more than doubling in the span of a week thanks to favorable headlines and a new partnership with Microsoft.

IOTA cryptocurrency surged 44% on Sunday to a new record high of $2.02, according to CoinMarketCap. Trade volumes have exceeded $310 million over the past 24 hours, which is equivalent to roughly 26,574 bitcoin. Bitfinex controls about 44% of the daily turnover, with South Korea’s Coinone accounting for roughly 22%.

At present values, IOTA is capitalized at $5.6 billion. That’s enough for sixth place on the global market cap ranking. The cryptocurrency has added a whopping 400% over the past month, with prices more than doubling over the past seven days.

The technical indicators suggest prices have entered extreme overbought territory. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) recently surged past 90, a clear sign that investor exuberance was controlling the market. That being said, IOTA is one of the most promising cryptocurrencies from a use-case perspective.

IOTA and Microsoft Join Forces for IOT
IOTA has been making waves recently by signing major partnerships with some of the world’s leading enterprises. Last week, the German-based startup announced a new partnership with Microsoft, Accenture and nearly two-dozen other companies to develop a blockchain solution tied to the Internet of Things (IOT). It has also been reported that the IOTA Foundation has partnered with Cisco, Volkswagen and Samsung around its Data Marketplace.

IOT is considered by many to be the digital economy’s next game changer, with Cisco Systems Inc. already touting it as the $19 trillion opportunity. This number is spread across five key areas, including capital efficiency, increased productivity, supply-chain improvements, better customer service and new technology innovations as a result of IOT integration.

The Internet of Things simply refers to the extension of the internet to the physical world through embedded technology. It is expected that 50 billion devices will connect to the internet by 2020, making IOT a highly lucrative opportunity. The IOTA Foundation says this figure will rise to 75 billion over the next decade.

IOTA is capitalizing on this phenomenon through Data Marketplace, a comprehensive pilot project that aims to decentralize global data flows. IOTA founder David Sønstebø recently blogged that “Data is one of the most imperative ingredients in the machine economy and the connected world.”

Data is considered the ‘new oil’ of the digital economy, so much so that a new breed of data science is being developed to exploit it. Data analytics is already a multi-billion-dollar industry, with major institutions seeking new ways to monetize data flows.

Data Marketplace will enable businesses to distribute and monetize data via blockchain technology. IOTA goes beyond standard blockchain protocols to offer free transactions through a system called Tangle. This is possible because IOTA is a DAG-based cryptocurrency that does not require mining capacity. For this reason, it is commonly marketed as the next generation blockchain. In fact, depending on who you ask, Tangle is not blockchain at all and is superior in almost every way.

Even then, Tangle is a highly touted architecture within the blockchain community, with Microsoft crypto specialist Omkar Naik hailing it as a key development in the creation of a connected world. On a practical level, it overcomes many of the scalability issues facing current blockchain protocols.

2018 is shaping up to be a big year for IOTA. The Data Marketplace demo is expected to run until January, with the IOTA Foundation promising a series of case studies showcasing its implementation.

Verdienmodel voor deze coin zal anders zijn dan de bekende coins omdat het geen transactionfee kent. Ik kan geen details vinden van de deals met microsoft, volkswagen, cisco en samsung maar ik denk dat je het in die hoek moet zoeken. Dit is een aanname

Via welk platform halen jullie de IOTA's binnen?


Bitfinex. Is wel een gedoe maar het is mogelijk. Duurde 2 maand voordat ik het kon terugboeken naar mijn wallet

Het lijkt meer op een pump-en-dump-systeem.
Iedereen weet dat 'gratis' niet bestaat.

Tegenwoordig is dat geen probleem meer.
Vrijwel alle ICO's zijn trouwens pump-en-dump.

Alles is tegenwoordig mogelijk, maar ik vind dit een waardeloze 'uitvinding'.

Waarom vind je dat? Weet jij wel wat voor techniek achter IOTA zit of niet?
Het gaat niet groen worden vandaag helaas voor jullie. Een partij zit elke stijging de kop in te drukken dus verwacht maar niet dat het groen sluit. Ik denk eerder DL. Succes!
