1/ For clarity, MANA will not be assigned or transferred by users. It is NOT a token. It can NOT be traded. And it should NOT be considered an implementation of DPoS, but an evolution as @hus_qy says(TaPoS). MANA is a metadata ability linked directly to VALUE transactions. #IOTA
2/ In a technical sense, it will be more like a protocol wrapper or header once implemented with the purpose of saying that a fund transfer is reputable because the node sending the funds is within its threshold.
3/ Then verifying that it's within that threshold by tying the underlying MANA to the value transaction and associating that MANA with the decentralized identifier(Node ID) tied to the node. This process is fully asynchronous and autonomous between nodes.

0/ A scorching hot start to the week here in crypto land!

To help you stay on top of it all, I've put together a 23-part thread on what went down on Monday in the #crypto/#blockchain ecosystem.
1/ 📣 @Blockstream unveiled “MuSig” to its test cryptographic library, making it possible for devs to tinker with the Schnorr signature scheme and potentially find bugs. Hopes the code "will eventually be merged into the upstream library secp256k1 used by Bitcoin Core."
2/ 🤑 Tokyo-headquartered Recruit Co., Ltd. - an intermediate holding company of Recruit Holdings Co., Ltd. - announced its investment in @BeamPrivacy [ $BEAM ] via its #blockchain-focused fund RSP Blockchain Tech Fund. recruit.co.jp/en/newsroom/20…

Keep reading to get up to speed on the latest goings-ons from the past day or so. You ready?
1/ 🆕 The team over at @ParityTech launched the alpha version of its Parity Fether wallet for the #Ethereum.

Fether uses the Parity Ethereum light client to access the #blockchain, as opposed to most #crypto wallets that are reliant on a centralized node. medium.com/paritytech/par…
2/ 🌊 After 4 full source-code rewrites, @PerlinNetwork [ $PERL ] unveiled the pre-alpha version of Wavelet.

It's the *first* publicly available, open, permissionless ledger that makes use of a DAG-based consensus protocol. Check it! medium.com/perlin-network…

0/ Such a full-on 24 hours for the #crypto/#blockchain space! When is it not?

Too much to take in? Fear not, I've got you covered, and have put together a thread of 24 events - one for each hour? (🤷‍♂️) - that caught my eye. Let's go!
1/ 🤝 @FantomFDN [ $FTM ] partnered with @Danfoss, a multi-billion-dollar #energy/#IoT manufacturer & service provider.

The Denmark-headquartered company will work w/ #Fantom to "explore the possibilities of accelerating the development of the microgrid." medium.com/fantomfoundati…
2/ 🆕 The @AERGO_io team published the mother of all blog posts. And why not! For it unveiled both the AERGO Chain Alpha & the AERGO pre-testnet.

Click through for more on their consensus algorithm (i.e., BFT-dPOS), Client SDK, and what's next for #AERGO. medium.com/aergo/releasin…

1. Let's talk about trinary ( #ternary ) and #IOTA . (Long rant, maybe better suited for a blog entry. Oh well, whatever.)
2. In my many discussions with many different people about #IOTA , ternary is I think the most controversial aspect of the tech. Many people consider it genuine lunacy, a sign that #IOTA is just a scam cryptocurrency.
3. And I'll be honest with you: when I first encountered ternary in #IOTA , I went "What the f*** is this sh**? Numerology?"

Very nice write-up on the lack of collision resistance in the Curl hash function previously used by the #IOTA cryptocurrency. Includes source code for generating collisions, formal proofs, and will be the final say in this debate. github.com/colavitam/curl…
The paper is due to Michael Colavita and Garrett Tanzer, both of Harvard University. It appears to be original research performed independently of the paper by Heilman et al. Big thanks to @cybergibbons for bringing this to my attention.
The reddit thread on the #IOTA subreddit has only a handful of comments at the moment, but they are hilarious to read. reddit.com/r/Iota/comment…
