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.

Blockchain vs Tangle

The goal of this article is to help newcomers in the cryptocurrency space or anyone unfamiliar with the technology behind it to understand what Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs) are and why we need them. Therefore, I will try not to go too deep into the technical details of DLTs, but rather give an overview of the principles used. I know this is a long article, but I wanted to explain everything in one document so you don’t have to look in different places if you want to get a basic understanding. Feel free to skip parts you already know. It’s important to note, that I won’t discuss all possible attack vectors or every detail of the tech. This article should only be an introduction to the topic and the first stepping stone to dig deeper if it sparks your interest.

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.
