iota released

In the course of investigating missing funds, the IOTA released the new, improved and safe Trinity wallet version for desktop as we are reading in the IOTA news today.

The IOTA Foundation cautioned owners that are attempting to check their balance not to believe the contacts on the official Discord channel. Scammers are reaching out to participants, claiming that they are able to recover lost coins. By now, the IOTA network remains practically closed for around five days already, whilst the network made reports about scoundrel transactions and stolen funds. Users have the opportunity to download the new Trinity wallet desktop version to check balances and report missing funds. The IOTA Foundation team said:

“Balances and transactions are fetched on login. If your balance does not look correct or you have unrecognized outgoing transactions, please contact a Discord mod or member of the IOTA Foundation directly on Discord. Please be aware that there are unfortunately active imposters posing as IOTA Foundation personnel on our Discord.”

The missing balances are even now under investigation, and value transactions are not permitted through the IOTA network. The team had the chance to close down the network, while the, in essence, revealing its dependent nature on the coordinating server. For now, the developers of the project did not launch the Coordicide protocol, which will permit decentralized consensus, and lastly IOTA balances are for now determined by the server.

This is not the first time that IOTA suffered robbery of its tokens. Besides errors and undiscoverable balances on the distributed graph, IOTA has suffered robbery through tainted wallets. In 2018, a hacker offered a seed generator service that was malicious and as a consequence, he was able to steal IOTA worth $11 million at that time.

Now, IOTA released the Trinity desktop wallet after what could have lost something between $300,000 and $1.6 million worth. The Trinity mobile wallet is supposedly not affected, but users are counseled not to reopen the application before the appearance of a new version. The precise nature of the damage is unknown, but the community thinks that there is a certain probability of third-party vulnerability. Some days ago, the vitality of the network was perceived as a good sign of future developments.

crypto rating council
The Crypto Rating Council CRC is a US-based consortium of crypto firms that advocates better regulatory clarity in the crypto space and backed by major companies such as Bittrex, Kraken, and Coinbase. With the growing debate over whether cryptocurrencies go under the securities category apart from Ethereum and Bitcoin which are considered assets, they analyzed a lot more of the digital assets and tried to determine whether the possess traits of security. In a blog post by the Crypto Rating Council CRC, we can see that they revealed three new cryptocurrencies to their lists with different ratings including IOTA, Basic Attention Token and the USDCoin. The blog post also revealed that the recent analysis was based on previous reviews ratings and the developments in the public domain. The CRC also updated scores for Polymath tokens and Maker. The CRC rates each token from 1-5 and the higher the rating the higher the chance of acting as a security. The ratings are important because they ensure that these are not illegally sold. Every country has different security laws and they have to follow them and provide even more clearance before making it into the market. however, the CRC is now affiliated to any government entity and the ratings are not endorsed by regulators or third parties. The CRC rating gave IOTA a score of 2.00 which makes it unlikely to be a form of security. IOTA climbed among the top of the decentralized projects and the current rating from the Crypto Rating Council will help enhance its credibility on the US market. The platform responded:
 “With our Crypto Ratings Council rating, we believe the US market and CRC’s partner organizations will feel more comfortable and confident engaging with the IOTA token and protocol.”
Apart from IOTA, BAT scored 2.00 while the USDC scored the lowest of 1.00 suggesting the least qualities of security. The USDC which is US-backed stablecoin and DAI scored 1.00 on the CRC ratings suggesting stablecoins show even fewer traits of security. The XRP token was evaluated back in 2019 and scored 4.00 showing high traits of security. The CRC ratings are not taken into consideration by governments or regulators so they won’t change their opinions any time soon, but Ripple is facing a lawsuit for being security in the US.

IOTA Streams Goes Live In The First (Alpha) Version

Published

iota streams
The IOTA Streams have been expected by many network users for some time now. As the company announced yesterday, the release of the Alpha version is now live for testing. Previously, this technology was called MAM (Masked Authenticated Messaging) but the IOTA Foundation decided to give it a clearer name so that users immediately know what function this application can perform. This is how MAM became IOTA Streams. Anyways, if you are following our cryptocurrency news, you would know that this is an encryption scheme for trinary messages that allows both authenticity and confidentiality on an original implementation and specification of apmi.bsu.by. In that manner, by using IOTA streams the messages sent can be encrypted via NTRU (Public Key Encryption) as well as PSK (Pre-Shared Key). In simple layman's terms, this is a second layer data transmission protocol which enables data streams. These streams are then transmitted between sensors and other devices - all in order to be encrypted appropriately and stored on the tangle in a way that cannot be manipulated. The consensus protocol used by IOTA additionally allows some integrity to the message and data streams. These features are specifically important in industries where privacy, immutability and integrity are all important. The alpha version of IOTA Streams brings some significant changes. Until now, the authors could only send, receive and sign messages. Now, they can also publish unsigned messages. Furthermore, the features show improved access control of the messages and more intelligent arranging of it within the network:
"In MAM v0, the message format was fixed, and if your use case required different message structures, you needed multiple channels for each structure. For example, you may have different message types for monitoring messages and alert messages. In IOTA Streams, you can publish both in the same channel, and applications that read the messages will distinguish them based on their specific headers," is the update shared in the IOTA news.
In MAM v0, all messages have existed independently of each other. In IOTA Streams, they can be linked together and additional information can be attached. Furthermore, older messages in a channel can be changed, and applications can retrieve only the newest valid message to guarantee the integrity.

The IOTA payments prototype Espiota which is developed by a member of the IOTA community continues to progress with the launch of the official website and a new product video. Espiota has the power to turn any electrical device into a smart device and to perform certain tasks when an IOTA payment is made. Let’s read further in the IOTA news today. The developer Christian Oosting based in Hamburg, Germany, developed the IOTA payments prototype device which specializes in sending and receiving IOTA and allows any electrical device to trigger a specification when an IOTA payment is conducted. As Oosting reported, the project is making further progress as the new official website was launched alongside a product video. Espiota perfectly fits with the IOTA concept as the cryptocurrency is designed as the foundation of the Internet of Things and is intended to serve as the base for machine-to-machine transactions. With the help of this prototype, any electrical device can be upgraded by plugging the Espiota box between the electrical device and the power socket to start action after payment has been made with the IOTA token. Espiota can perform two functions and it can manage the power supply of the electronic devices but also enable automated payments without an intermediary. These models are called Pay for Action and Pay for Time. Time works when an electrical device is available to paying customers a certain time, while the other mode works when a device is connected to Espiota and gets the action done when the payment is made with IOTA. Other uses cases for this device could be automating machine payments, hotel industry for micropayments, power supply, or automotive industry. The video about the platform was presented yesterday and it shows how simple it is to connect a lamp to the Internet via Wi-Fi enabling. The customers can activate the electricity according to their needs by paying IOTA while using the Espiota box. Espiota also multiple setting options such as negative balance, or a pause option. The payment can be made using the IOTA Trinity wallet by scanning the QR code on the Espiota display and completing the payment in a few seconds for free.
