David Sønstebø - Today at 2:33 AM @Dusty Word, world leading companies on boarded weekly, cutting edge tech being released monthly, top talent hired bi-daily. IOTA is moving so fucking slow
David Sønstebø - Today at 2:39 AM I am refurbishing and renovating my whole house atm. and even just basic shit like painting a room where you know exactly the square meters, how much paint you need, you know exactly how much floor you need etc.
David Sønstebø - Today at 2:39 AM You can time it in your head, but reality will kick in and some uncertain variable will cause a delay
David Sønstebø - Today at 2:40 AM I was mounting my TV on my wall the other day and had the screws necessary, but they were 1 ( !!!! ) cm too short, which postponed it a whole day
Bambiota - Today at 5:26 AM When AMA?
leechi - Today at 5:26 AM david, can fake people stop real shit?
David Sønstebø - Today at 5:27 AM @Bambiota AMA will come in May, but there's sooo much lined up, so we want to get a few big announcements (including Ecosystem) out before, so everyone has some meat to tenderize for the Q&A @leechi Only temporary.
Apache Sidewinder 🚁 - Today at 5:26 AM David what's your favourite Guns N Roses song?
David Sønstebø - Today at 5:27 AM @Apache Sidewinder 🚁 Hmmm, good question. Probably Slash's guitar solo in Estranged
travel! - Today at 2:47 AM @David Sønstebø , is MOBI the only few « big » announcement before AMA ?
David Sønstebø - Today at 2:48 AM no....
David Sønstebø - Today at 3:19 AM With CRISPR gene-data traded securely over Tangle will become a reality
David Sønstebø - Today at 3:24 AM The thing is, once you get all of these meta-telematics data secured, you can sell them to other producers, including the gene fenotype, so they can reproduce the yield and quality The data will be very valuable
David Sønstebø - Today at 3:28 AM @yoda beautiful, agritech is high on the IOTA agenda
Hapa Haole - Today at 3:41 AM @David Sønstebø Since one of IOTA's strong points is Data integrity with sensors etc, are you guys receiving any backlash from companies that...like to lie and don't want to be invovled in that since a lot of big companies are corrupt lol?
David Sønstebø - Today at 3:42 AM @Hapa Haole Nah, I get the question though. However, this is a reality that is coming whether the entity likes it or not, by opting out you make yourself the target of suspicion
t00k - Today at 3:43 AM @David Sønstebø Okay if I PM you about a company in Sweden? Worked there before and have some connections left.. Want to set up something.. Or talk to someone else?
David Sønstebø - Today at 3:44 AM @t00k that'd be nice, we got some shit going in Sweden as you know (hint hint eKrone)
not batman - Today at 3:44 AM @David Sønstebø seriously? the swedish national crypto?
David Sønstebø - Today at 3:46 AM @not batman Actually it's good, it gives me TV and sound I can't provide any official update on eKrone yet, just that it's still ongoing
Alebu - Today at 3:54 AM David are there plans for an IF office in Switzerland?
David Sønstebø - Today at 3:54 AM @Alebu Not right now. Oliver Bussmann being president of Crypto Valley there and being part of IF is sufficient for now
matin619c - Today at 3:58 AM @David Sønstebø The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has launched a ‘UAE Blockchain Strategy 2021’, aiming to conduct 50% of government transactions at the federal level using blockchain technology by 2021. Great to see today IOTA as part of MOBI initiative announcement at Future Blockchain Summit in Dubai. Appreciate if IOTA is made available on BitOasis exchange - the only reliable exchange in Middle East for United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Oman to enter with fiat.
David Sønstebø - Today at 4:00 AM @matin619c you got a connect? We don't tend to reach out to exchanges, we leave it up to them
Sebastian - Today at 4:03 AM @David Sønstebø How is the audit of the wallet progressing
David Sønstebø - Today at 4:03 AM @Sebastian Very well
northernwhale Sidewinder - Today at 4:27 AM @David Sønstebø David! Do you have plans to change the iota logo at all ? I'm thinking of making something that will cost a fair amount from my pocket and want it to age well. Nda response is fine too x
David Sønstebø - Today at 4:28 AM @northernwhale Sidewinder I think the IOTA logo is already timeless. I see no reason for changing it.
w4lker - Today at 4:31 AM Anyone knows who came up with the design for the iota logo?
David Sønstebø - Today at 4:43 AM @w4lker me and another designer
Bernie Sanders - Yesterday at 11:25 PM Is there any plan for a laymans write up of how Q works, I think it would help a lot. Because right now Qubic is just a list of stuff that was on the roadmap
David Sønstebø - Yesterday at 11:26 PM @Bernie Sanders Wait until the date, then all of these things will come, yes
timvanhelsdingen - Yesterday at 11:26 PM there is a lot of EUUSD stuff in teaser, seems like the “after Q you dont need to go into fiat” wasn’t a joke
Eric Hop - Today at 1:22 AM Remember Star Trek? Q was omnipotent!
Qgelfisch - Today at 1:35 AM @Come-from-Beyond why smart contracts still in progress on your twitter bio?:
Come-from-Beyond - Today at 1:36 AM That text will be changed by a qubic
Eric Hop - Today at 1:37 AM Every day is a good day when you can work at IOTA
Come-from-Beyond - Today at 1:37 AM [is today a good day?] that kind of questions will be answered by Qubic oracles [Will IOTA's smart contracts be as powerful as Ethereum's smart contracts?] no much more powerful :
Eric Hop - Today at 1:38 AM Since when are ETH contracts smart?
Eric Hop - Today at 1:41 AM Can't airdrop what has already been distributed completely Our vision for IOTA is that everything and everyone uses IOTA as preferred coin. It's silly to build on top of IOTA and not use the built-in fee-less token.
CryptoSufi - Today at 1:44 AM So computational work is valued in iota
Eric Hop - Today at 1:45 AM Everything is. Why would you want to deal with exchange rates?
Eric Hop - Today at 1:52 AM In 30 days you will be able to come up with your own use cases. Qubic will be yet another tool for the community to come up with awesome solutions like IOTA, Flash, MAM, etc.
Come-from-Beyond - Today at 2:33 AM [wee gonna be rich] i doubt, most will sell at 1/10 of the real price
Come-from-Beyond - Today at 6:46 AM [Asia waking up?] No, it's just people expecting that Asia is waking up. Wait for real Asia.
Eric Hop - Yesterday at 2:01 AM Read David's announcement text if you want food for speculation.
Eric Hop - Yesterday at 3:49 AM https://medium.com/bethereum/how-oracles-connect-smart-contracts-to-the-real-world-a56d3ed6a507
ETH based but the general sentiment is the same
MrWiggles - Yesterday at 4:50 AM I thought iota is for interoperability, not for killing other Coins
Eric Hop - Yesterday at 5:03 AM It's called collateral damage. Or desired side effects
Eric Hop - Yesterday at 5:19 AM @Mark Thanks. Like I said it was hard to contain our excitement and not fuel the hype constantly knowing that the hype did not do it justice. We haven't even begun to explore the possibilities that Qubic will open the community up to yet. There will be killer apps that no one have even thought of yet. I expect a similar organic growth like happened with the Internet and such. It's like crypto all over again. Provide people with a new toy/tool and see what they come up with. Just as long as it's not ICO- or kitten-based
Eric Hop - Yesterday at 5:36 AM I never speculate on price. The only thing that seems sure is that price will go up. Demand for iotas will start driving the price at some point.
Eric Hop - Yesterday at 5:37 AM Price is nice. But it's about the new tech and what that enables us to do for humanity. Wouldn't it be nice to decentralize the shit out of conglomerats, banks, and government?
Eric Hop - Yesterday at 5:41 AM Like I said. It was hard to balance the excitement with not wanting to fuel the hype
Eric Hop - Yesterday at 5:42 AM And actually, nothing has changed in that regard. You guys will now speculate wildly with the limited new information and already I've seen outlandishly off ideas, and some people get really close.
eremal - Yesterday at 5:47 AM Yeah pretty much, but temperature sensors over an area as big a city might be a challenge. Im thinking more of how the overlaying consensus mechanism of the Tangle is that a transaction is confirmed when all nodes on the network has verified it indirectly or directly. The verification is done by each node checking their ledger if the transaction is possible or allowed. Now imagine a set of nodes having a sensor that tells them wether info X is true or not. And then you collect all these nodes into a consensus structure. You ask these nodes if X is true by issuing a transaction, and once all these nodes has confirmed it you can be positive that it is true
Eric Hop - Yesterday at 5:49 AM See? You have been thinking about this already! You're pretty much describing Oracles (the sensors, that post real-world info) and a smart contract that integrates the data into a result.
Eric Hop - Yesterday at 6:10 AM @shieeet The fact that you have thought about this should be a hint that other people may have done it as well. Especially the people trying to make this happen. That being said, I always love this kind of input, because there is no guarantee we haven't overlooked problem areas. We're as human as anyone else and make mistakes. So by all means keep throwing stuff like this towards us and we'll incorporate it into our solutions. There are a bunch of developments underway to lower the bar for participating in the network, and to come up with great incentives to participate. The problems are very visible. The solutions will take time to test and implement. This is an organigc process that will take time. Look at what Bitcoin had to overcome and after all these years it has hardly progressed beyond a speculation vehicle. In fact it has lost terrain as a payment system due to the fees. Now everyone in that space it trying to solve that problem. We see similar things happening with IOTA. We removed certain blockchain limittions by designing a completely new system, but that one of course has its own new limitations. One that everyone is going to bump into is network bandwidth for example.
Pitbullworkout - Yesterday at 6:17 AM @Eric Hop you've said a couple of times to read between the lines in David's announcement. I'm guessing JINN and possibly a third advisor to IF from large chip manufacturer?
Eric Hop - Yesterday at 6:17 AM We cannot reveal more at the moment, or we would have. We will reveal when we are ready to. Which is planned for June. But we also wanted to give you guys at least soemthing for the time being. Hence this teaser announcement.
Eric Hop - Yesterday at 6:19 AM We know from past experience that any news in crypto is short-lived. Tomorrow could bring another FUD article. We are not focused on that. We are focusing on getting shit done. And we want the community to share our excitement.
Eric Hop - Yesterday at 6:23 AM If you know your token value will multiply due to what you're building anyway, would you be selling right now? We don't need to pump the price. Once IOTA takes off demand for tokens will skyrocket. So we focus on making sure IOTA takes off.
Eric Hop - Yesterday at 6:27 AM Here is another instance of where you could solve a perceived problem as a community member. Just start thinking out of the can't-do-timestamps box and come up with a solution that makes timestamps a reality or unnecessary.
Eric Hop - Yesterday at 6:29 AM In my experience, saying 'this can't be done' you are always right. You won't be able to do it. And then someone who does not say that line comes along and does it anyway.
ZenJourney - Yesterday at 7:46 AM As someone working in a analytics, how can I prepare best to fully utilize Q?
paul douglas - Yesterday at 7:59 AM I probably can't say about how to prepare without violating the hush policy
Eric Hop - Yesterday at 11:29 PM Here's another hint: we revealed 3 things about Qubic. You guys only discuss 2 of them.
Yellow - Yesterday at 11:29 PM I wrote a small piece about my thoughts on Qubic. Would love to get some discussion going on: https://www.reddit.com/Iota/comments/8gzk7u/qubic_potential_impact/
Eric Hop - Yesterday at 11:39 PM Seriously, by far the best write-up I've seen out there so far. No weird speculations and everything thought through brilliantly.
Eric Hop - Yesterday at 11:44 PM You've taken the few things we gave you and thought them through without going off on wild speculations and turned it into a coherent story. Very impressive. This article should be basic reading for everyone interested in Qubic.
Eric Hop - Today at 12:15 AM We've already indicated in the past that IOTA is building protocols for IoT that are supposed to become the standard. Look at IOTA itself. It's very basic. Yet the community and IF members have come up with interesting protocols on top of that to make it more interesting. MAM, Flash, cheques, aliases, etc. And now Qubic. I see the same thing happening there. Give people a new toy to play with and they will come up with things you never even envisioned.
Eric Hop - Today at 12:17 AM Of course. We make stuff for you guys to play with. It's community effort, permissionless innovation, that will create wonderful stuff. Just look at what Semko is doing with Carriota for example.
Eric Hop - Today at 12:17 AM Our task is to provide secure, working, scalable protolcols.
Eric Hop - Today at 12:18 AM That's why I always compare it to the early internet. You had TCP/IP to play with. Then someone came up with HTTP on top of that. Later someone put HTML on top of that.
Eric Hop - Today at 12:19 AM IOTA is TCP/IP. Qubic could be HTTP or even HTML. I don't kow yet.
Eric Hop - Today at 12:19 AM And just as with the internet it will be gradual and organic growth.
Eric Hop - Today at 12:24 AM I actually created the original web page for the qubic teaser. With my 6-year old web app development skills. At that time you would test against all major browsers on desktop and no one even considered mobile. So I made the mistake of using my old skills and forgot to test on mobile. Luckily Edward caught me on that. So they converted the page to a more modern version. I was blown away by how many things changed in those 6 years. The JS they used was almost unrecognizable. This is what I see happening with IOTA, with MAM, with Qubic, etc
