Why hey there, I reckon I'm still eligible for that. Have you shared this forum anywhere yet or have all the members simply landed here by coincidence?

Sorry for the delay, I have not added the badge to your profile. Everyone registered has just landed here by coincidence but we will continue to update and advertise in the future.

Woohoo!

Rank me up.

Welcome to the forum!

I'm going to be adding badges soon for users, nearer the end of the week.

Hope to see you around soon

IOTA News / Web hosting company starts accepting IOTA payments
« on: June 27, 2017, 11:42:35 PM »
"We always accepted Bitcoin payments as we believe in new digital Internet payment platforms and technologies. Sadly, we have noticed that not only Bitcoin payments are less attractive for smaller payments but the increased transaction time is now usually hours long. Bitcoin like with any blockchain technology has its limitations, and as such, it cannot replace in its current form traditional payment systems like credit cards or PayPal. Internet users require instant micro transactions with equally micro small fees.

We believe IOTA can solve those problems. IOTA has zero fees which make it automatically a viable option for Internet payments where micro transactions are required. Since IOTA does not rely on a traditional blockchain technology, it also means it is built to scale both in speed and size. While our payment provider BitPay solves the problem of instant payments through Bitcoin, they recently have introduced several changes, not only raising the minimum amount but also fees and imposing more limitations on business accepting Bitcoins. This is not a problem with BitPay itself but rather the Bitcoin technology which forces companies to adapt. This year 2017 Bitcoin has reached its peak limit on transactions. After much research and following the IOTA project we trust the organization and people behind it as well the fundamental core technology on which its built and have confidence that it will work as a mature platform for micro token digital transactions and direct web payments.

The IOTA design also avoids centralization as it is happening with Bitcoin since there are no transaction fees or miners. To summarize IOTA resolves all the problems that Bitcoin should have addressed from his initial concept. Starting from July 1, we are going to accept IOTA payments for our services.

Since IOTA was only recently introduced to open trading markets like Bitfinex, please note that we are accepting it as an experimental payment method, and as such we take risks with currency fluctuations. In the case for example for domain name registrations/renewals, since the total net profit is a few cents a year per domain, accepting cryptocurrencies that fluctuate in price is a risk for us. This means that in order to receive IOTA directly we need to charge a surplus to protect ourselves from financial loss. As such an extra 10% will be added to all IOTA payments and a limit of a maximum 100 USD can be currently paid with IOTA per customer account. Please note that these will be only temporary limits and they could be modified in the future per account or individual request.

On July 1, a new payment option called IOTA will be viable for payment both on invoices and in the cart system. Once selected, an IOTA address will be available for token payments.

A few differences between Bitcoin:

IOTA is not based on blockchain but tangle so it can scale on transactions per second
IOTA has no mining, no block, no difficulty which is leading to current Bitcoin centralization
IOTA has no transaction fees which make it perfect for micropayments
IOTA scales almost unlimited, unlike blockchain which gets slower as the network grows
IOTA is not only a currency but a protocol and can be used for IoT devices or almost any other use
IOTA was created to enable machine to machine digital economy
IOTA was heavily tested for years before being released
IOTA is led by the IOTA Foundation, a nonprofit in Germany
IOTA developers and founders are well known as opposed to Bitcoin which is a mystery
IOTA is completely open source, and all tokens were released to the public
IOTA is already working today, and transactions are fast and free

I am giving away a IOTA rank to the first 50 people that sign up. No one will be able to obtain the rank after 50 has been reached.

Currently at 7 at the time this post was made.

I think IOTA is defiantly a game changer. Once added to most exchanges the price will start to increase further

IOTA News / IOTA Ecosystem Fund ($2 million)
« on: June 25, 2017, 07:48:04 PM »

Every great open source project has a great ecosystem surrounding it, in many ways it is the defining characteristic that separates a mediocre project from a great one. A thriving ecosystem is a prerequisite for long term success. In that spirit we are very happy to announce the ?IOTA Ecosystem Fund?, which is valued north of $2,000,000. This fund is entirely dedicated towards fostering growth of IOTA through incentivizing participation in expanding and shaping the ecosystem.



We firmly believe that a single demonstration outweighs a thousand presentations. A Proof of Concept takes a vision from the abstract idea realm and transforms it into a tangible concept others are inspired by in the real world, it conveys the vision better than any whitepaper, article or presentation ever could. If you are a developer, or a team of developers, this is your opportunity. Whether you are a Maker or a distributed ledger enthusiast we welcome you to explore the many possibilities of new applications that are possible to realize through IOTA?s unique distributed ledger technology. Whether it be something relatively simple like adding some sensors to a Raspberry Pi and making it useful through IOTA or something significantly more complex, the IOTA Ecosystem Fund exist to make it a reality


As elucidated in the public IOTA Development Roadmap, the engineering philosophy behind IOTA is one of modularity and pragmatism. Rather than attempting in vain to create a ?all in one? universal solution, which goes against all design and engineering principles, we instead keep the underlying ledger protocol as basic and efficient as possible and extend its utility through the IOTA eXtension Interface(IXI). Anyone can build an IXI module, whether it be for their own needs, due to there being a demand for it, or simply for the love of creating something useful.
In addition to that, we also want to make the overall development of IOTA easier and widen its utility through libraries. If you have an idea for a library which you think is useful for the community, feel free to apply to get its development funded.



As mentioned before, the IXI modules is how IOTA manage to stay lightweight and optimized, while also extending its utility beyond the core client. New IXI modules take a lot of time to develop, often due to the vast amount of time that goes into research. If you are more inclined towards researching topics and writing whitepapers than coding, this is your opportunity to make money doing precisely that.


Nothing is more conducive to growth than teaching others to master what you have already mastered, at IOTA Learn we are curating tutorials on how to get started using and implementing IOTA into your projects. In order to ensure a certain quality and maintenance of tutorials, significant sums will be allocated towards this section. So if you have done a Proof of Concept or similar on IOTA and want to share the step by step process on how you did it, this is an opportunity for you to earn money while enriching the world of knowledge.


IOTA already has a history of co-hosting hackathons. Not only are hackathons fun, but they are also a very useful tool to bring brilliant people together to work on new ideas that otherwise might never be explored. We will host and co-host both virtual and physical hackathons throughout 2017 and 2018 with different themes in many different areas with sizable prizes, so keep you eye out for the upcoming announcements about these.


If you are interested in applying for funding in any of these categories, head over to this form. There you?ll simply have to fill out some basic questions, including the ones about the total desired budget for the project, its scope, description, timeline and so on.
The way that the funding works then is that some of our community representatives will get back to you, ask more questions and define the deliverables of the project with you. After the terms has been agreed upon the IOTA Foundation will greenlight the project and you will receive the first payment and the project will officially start.

Watch the IOTA tangle in reltime:

"IOTA uses a new technology they call The Tangle. Instead of using a blockchain and allowing miners to verify transactions, users verify two previous transactions in order to make a transaction themselves."
