The IOTA Foundation published the first report on a research fellowship study. The grant was announced in November 2020, and the first results from the fellows are now available to the public.
The study focused on cellular automata and autopeering optimization. The IOTA Foundation believes this type of research will help them find new opportunities for IOTA to grow. The results will help the community find the best features needed for Coordicide, the next version of the IOTA blockchain.
I look forward to better development on IOTA
Research and development are an important activity in Blockchain technologies. These technologies attempt to address real-world problems and to help a vast majority of people. These measures need to be researched to find the best features that will help as many people as possible.
IOTA is on the way to revolutionize its blockchain and functions. This blockchain can open up new opportunities for both developers and end users. However, all of these efforts require rigorous research. The IOTA Foundation has decided to grant research teams to receive further contributions from community members. One of the investigations has now been completed and the first results are available to the public.
According to the IOTA Foundation, the latest research project on the IOTA blockchain dealt with the analysis of the “effects of diagram configurations on reaching a consensus for the CA algorithm”.
The main goal of this research was to find the best combination for consensus in Tangle, IOTA’s base product. The Announcement mail describes the steps in the research as follows:
“To this end, as part of the project, we analyzed the structural properties of graphs created using the Ar-Row and Salt-based autopeering methods, that is, the methods for creating connections between IOTA nodes. Second, we looked at the effects of diagram configurations, particularly how the consensus based on cellular automata achieves stability and, if not, how these situations can be overcome. “
The above two steps resulted in a new offer for changes to the voting system in IOTA. The end result of the research provides improvements and suggestions in three areas of the IOTA blockchain. Autopeering algorithms, cellular machine consensus, and enhanced CA at zero temperature have been studied and explored in the latest grant research. According to the research, CA without temperature needs to be examined more closely. The first results weren’t good enough.
IOTA is on the way to a very important upgrade. The blockchain will experience many changes in the coming weeks and prepare for the new IOTA called Coordicide. Research such as the latest scholarship research is helping the community find the best way to improve and feature development.
