How to perfom proof of work on the client?
I want to create a block that fulfill the Proof of Work requirement. After reading sparse documentation my understanding on how to do it is: 1- Serialize the block(message) excluding the 8-byte Nonce ...
Converting bytes to trites using IOTA libraries
Most IOTA libraries (at least C#, and Java) have a Converter, that has a getTrits method. public static void GetTrits( sbyte bytes, int trits ) It has two arrays as parameters. The input,...
Why does the least significant trit come first?
What is the reason that the least significant trit is at the very left in the IOTA ternary implementation when all other numbering systems have it at the very right? For T = -1: (dec)8 is T01 instead ...
Why were 4-byte integers chosen as the best way of storing individual trits within IOTA software?
update: Since this was posted, on Jun 11, an issue was opened by one of the IOTA Foundation developers to look into how to make the storage of trits use less memory. Although moving to a byte is not ...
Why is JINN Ternary?
I was just learning about skrmions and could not help but realize that they could produce a ternary state computer. But why is JINN in ternary? What are the benefits of this in the current current or ...
Why are three trits in a tryte?
What was the motivation behind making a tryte equal to three trits? Seems counter-intuitive that a byte contains more combinations than a tryte—at least from a semantical perspective.
When did iota devs adopt ternary over binary?
I read the Nov 30 posting , which was great. Just not clear when project became so aligned to ternary.
Where is the message in the transaction bundle?
I am working with the nodeJS lib. I made a transaction with an address, amount, message and tag as inferred from api.prototype.prepareTransfers in the JSlib. Then I looked up that transaction with api....
What are the maths to convert bytes <-> trytes?
I've heard that one byte contains as much data as "about 5 trits". However, I'm not entirely clear on how the conversion works. How do I convert binary data into balanced ternary (and vice versa)? ...
How much of my security is improved using other levels of security when generating the seed?
I had a hard time answering this question because I do not know how much security levels improve security in quantitative terms. Is this right? e.g. (Hashspace increment) 81 trits => 27^81 ^1 (low ...
If I increment the first tryte of Seed A to obtain Seed B, why does Seed B retain some of the spent addresses of Seed A in it's history?
According to this video when you take a Seed A (e.g. HIJK99) and increment the first tryte by one to obtain another Seed B (i.e. IIJK99), Seed B is associated to the transactions to Seed A.
Why is this Jinn processor better for iota? [closed]
Everyone is waiting for the ternary Jinn processor. But why is it so important for IOTA and who will include this processor instead of a normal one?
What is JINN project?
I would like to know more about the JINN project. What is JINN? Why is it important to Iota? Where can I get more information about JINN?
What are trytes and trits? [duplicate]
I see the words "trytes" and "trits" used a lot when discussing IOTA, however neither my browser's autocorrect nor the Oxford English Dictionary know what these words mean. What are trytes and trits, ...
Will the total supply of IOTA tokens ever increase?
When wealth is created through work, shouldn't the currency supply also increase to ensure the liquidity of wealth? Edit: The total supply of IOTA tokens right now is (3^33-1)/2. The circulating ...
Is it possible to send pictures to the Tangle? What is the data limit per transaction?
As we all know, it is easily possible to convert ASCII to trytes. See this converter in the IOTA github: Converter If I now want to convert a whole picture like one of the Iota logo to trytes, how is ...
Why does IOTA use a ternary number system?
What are the benefits of the ternary number system over the more traditional binary number system? Are there drawbacks to ternary with respect to binary, aside from the obvious of less adoption?
