More or less a year ago the #IOTA Foundation announced two new networks.

#Shimmer a staging network and #Assembly a permissionless Layer2 network building on top of #IOTA.

Let's put together everything we know and speculate about their adoption and price.


Okay so first we need to get a little bit of an overview of everything #IOTA.

We need to separate between networks and technology upgrades. This is necessary to keep a clear picture of everything we will talk about in this Thread

Simplified the #IOTA Foundation is marketing two major updates that are coming to their tech.

1) #Stardust - An update enabling the layer 1 (#DAG) to natively support customs assets (Tokens, NFTs) and be the trust anchor for layer 2 #sc networks.

I’ve heard a lot of FUD surrounding @Polkadot

Some is genuine curiosity like this post below, but many takes are just lazy with little to no DD

Let’s clear up a few things, see where $DOT is now, and look to where #Polkadot aims to be within the _real_ #web3


This thread is intended to be a starter pack for those who are curious about where #Polkadot is at the end of 2022 with links to learn more if desired

We’re staying at the user level because that’s where $DOT is headed next

Let’s start with a short look at #Web3 history
2/ #Ethereum beginnings

Founded in 2015 by @VitalikButerin, @gavofyork, @IOHK_Charles and others, Ethereum was an experiment in programmable money

Written in a brand new coding language called #solidity, dev’d by Gav, it enabled those smart contracts we all know too well

Council Incident Report:

On October 6th, 2022, Mangata X was targeted with a governance attack which resulted in attackers gaining voting rights on the on-chain Council for a brief time. The incident has since been resolved, and Mangata X is fully operational.

Opening 🧵 1/9
2/9 🧵 The type of attack was novel. Instead of a technical hack, the attackers used a hostile takeover of the council at 4:39 AM UTC to authorize transferring KSM from the parachain sovereign account on Kusama to another Kusama account.
3/9 🧵 At 18:29 PM UTC we regained control of the council and countered the actions taken by the attackers in full.

Kusama - Polkadot's canary network built for speed and innovation

@kusamanetwork and @Polkadot share the same codebase

Kusama is an early and unaudited version of Polkadot

Both networks operate as multichain, heterogeneously-sharded blockchains based on nominated PoS (NPoS)
While the two are closely related, Polkadot adopts a conservative approach and prioritizes reliability and stability, whereas #Kusama is wild and fast

It is not a testnet but a developmental network that is extremely helpful for early-stage deployment & bold experimentation
A significant problem associated with #testnets is their inability to test things that require some degree of value, e.g., #governance and stakeholder voting/participation

Such activities are futile as no individual is sufficiently motivated to vote on a #network with 0 value

1/ The Kusamaverse provides an interactive and live-visualisation of @Kusamanetwork and its transactions, in a 3D browser-based environment.

What data is visualised in #Kusamaverse?


Read the thread below 🧵 ⬇️
@kusamanetwork 2/ The Kusama relay chain visualised

Surrounding everything in the Kusamaverse is the relay chain - the heart of @Polkadot and @kusamanetwork

It represents the Kusama blockchain itself, where transactions are finalised.
@kusamanetwork @Polkadot 3/ Blocks validated in real-time

Periodically, the blocks which are currently being validated will appear on the #Kusama relay chain, showing the blocks’ ID

Beams of light, striking the blocks from the sky, indicate the exact validator nodes performing the validation ⚡️

New day, new thread! Today, we'll take a look at @MoonbeamNetwork and dig the tech behind it 👇

Moonbeam is a smart contract platform built with the @rustlang while also utilizing the @substrate_io framework.

The project is essentially a Layer-1 #blockchain with full #Ethereum interoperability presented on the @Polkadot network as a parachain.

Moreover, @MoonbeamNetwork co-exists along its sister-parachain @MoonriverNW which was launched on the @kusamanetwork in June 2021.

. @MoonriverNW is an independent parachain providing real economic conditions on #Kusama. It may be used as an experimental environment to test dApps before deploying them to #Moonbeam. Meanwhile, dApps that require Moonbeam security can be deployed there immediately.

Here's a little thread about $DOT - Polkadot.

Pretty much, Polkadot: "The Blockchain of Blockchains". 🤯

I will leave all the official links at the end. 👇

Please like, retweet & follow if you enjoyed this thread and have learned something from it!

The idea of @Polkadot was created in 2017, by Dr Gavin Wood (@gavofyork) just after inventing the #Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) and the infamous 'Solidity' programming language.
@Polkadot is the first "Layer 0" #blockchain that can connect multiple "Layer 1" blockchains to itself. They aim to create a unified network of blockchains that can be built and connected.

Do you know the differences between #Polkadot and #Kusama?
Let explore the matter to understand how Kusama plays a very important role in the development of #Dotsama ecosystem and is, in itself, much more than a testnet.

Although they share many parts of their code, #Polkadot and #Kusama are independent networks with different priorities.
Kusama is wild and fast, great for experimentation and early-stage deployment. Polkadot is more conservative, prioritizing stability and dependability.

1. Points in common:
#Kusama was released as an early version of the same code to be used in #Polkadot sharing the same underlying architecture: a multichain, heterogeneously-sharded design based on Nominated Proof of Stake (NPoS).

Let´s talk about @Kiltprotocol $KILT, an open source BC protocol for issuing decentralized identifiers and verifiable credentials who intends to become the identity solution for Web 3.0 Currently running in #Kusama plans to get a Parachain slot in #Polkadot.

$KILT is a decentralized blockchain protocol for issuing self-sovereign, anonymous and verifiable credentials, enabling trust market business models in Web 3. KILT’s mission is to return control over personal data to its owner, restoring privacy to the individual.

Internet users need to register for using services. If those services become successful, they accumulate millions of logins and often collect data on users. This leads to three major problems:

1. The data silos are honeypots for hackers and thus a high security risk.
