New article: "Exploring IOTA 2.0 Smart Contracts in a Private Network: Developing a Prediction Market".
To help interested developers and the IOTA community to more quickly try out smart contracts, this article describes how to set up a private IOTA network with the latest state of the software and demonstrates a workable prediction market smart contract developed in Rust.

Assimilation

Biological organisms programmed by the data structures that we call DNA have shaped the world for nearly 3.5 billion years.

Throughout this time period, all living things have battled resource scarcity in the physical environment to replicate their DNA from one generation to the next in the process of natural selection.

Error Correction

For thousands of years, the best minds have been consumed by the existential questions of the universe:

What is the meaning of it all? How did everything get here? How does it all work? How will it all end? Are we special?

These rational inquiries have pushed humanity to astounding intellectual heights in philosophy, mathematics, physical science, and even the humanities.

Parallel Reality

What is the distributed ledger value proposition? Is the elegant distributed ledger solution even possible? What is the killer distributed ledger application?

These are the three fundamental questions that participants in the distributed ledger space have reflected on for years—all while falling far short of the answers and their inescapable consequences.

Treasuries

We had our first meeting on Discord to discuss the community treasury. We were more or less unanimous that we want to have a treasury, but we couldn’t agree how it should look like. This is totally normal. We all come from different parts of the world, have different backgrounds and experiences. It’s hard and more or less impossible to agree on a single governance structure.

Die Zwitscher-Maschine

One way you could describe a distributed ledger is a network of machines which tell each other the truth.
In a distributed ledger networked nodes send messages back and forth that look this:
[statement] is true
Nodes send and receive these truth statements, verify if they are true, and collect them into a list of true statements which we call the ledger...

Coordicide

I’ve long thought of how to structure these tech series. It’s hard to choose a technical level of proficiency that everyone can follow, because everyone comes from a different background.
If you’re new, take a look at the first article of the series to get a general idea how the Tangle works and how it’s different from a blockchain.

IOTA Lab Aachen

The possibilities and challenges of the Industrial Internet of Things have been investigated for years at the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering WZL of RWTH Aachen University under the topic of Internet of Production (IoP). The IoP focuses on interdisciplinary optimization approaches along with the entire value chain, especially in the areas of data acquisition, machine learning and artificial intelligence. This article evaluates whether and how the vision of IoP can be extended to a Manufacturing Economy. Distributed ledgers in general, and IOTA in particular, were examined for this purpose. Subsequently, IoP potential use cases for the area of manufacturing technologies were outlined, but it turned out to have greater potential in manufacturing economy.
