The IOTA foundation is further pushing their agenda for the use case of the Tangle in the Internet of Things through IOTA partnership with three firms. These firms are Volkswagen, Bosch and Fujitsu. The industrial applications of the IOTA tangle have been demonstrated on numerous occasions in collaboration with the three partners as shall be outlined below.

IOTA Partnership with Bosch

At the Bosch Connected World 2018 event, the advantages of IOTA were demonstrated as the cooperation between the two firms was emphasized. With IOTA, Bosch wants to influence the value chain in the automotive and Internet of things sector.

At the end of last year, Bosch introduced its new sensor XDK or Cross Domain Development Kit. This sensor, on the IOTA tangle, will take automation to a whole new level through Machine-to-machine communication.

IOTA Partnership with Volkswagen

VW presented a new proof of concept together with IOTA at the CEBIT 2018 event. This was a demonstration about the use of the tangle to secure software transfer. VW wants to integrate the technology into its products as we move into a future of autonomous vehicles. Cars can get data they need for certain updates and function as part of an evolving digital world.

2020 has been predicted to usher in over 250 Million networked cars with 75% of this number connected to the internet. Therefore, to abate security fears, the IOTA tangle would be best suited for the transfer of information to and from the vehicles on the road.

IOTA Partnership with Fujitsu

Fujitsu has an amazing global network of over 140,00 employees supporting customers in over 100 countries. Fujitsu, being an IT service provider, wants to use IOTA to test projects for its customers who are in the manufacturing and automotive industries.

Leopold Sternberg, Program Manager of Fujitsu’s Industry 4.0 Competence Center, had this to say about the future of using the IOTA tangle:

“Fujitsu is well-equipped to introduce IOTA as the new protocol standard because we are both experts in IT services and manufacturing IT products.”

Summing it Up

These three large industrial partnerships will be the backbone of mass applications of IOTA. The IOTA foundation has plans to increase its partnerships with time, but the existing ones will serve as a litmus test for the problem-solving capability of the IOTA Network.

Market Performance of MIOTA

The fake news that the Goldman Sachs firm from Wall Street was shelving plans for a Bitcoin and Crypto desk, gravely affected the crypto markets. BTC is the backbone of everything, dropped from comfortable levels of $7,400 to current levels of $6,292 in a span of less than a week.

With the fall of Bitcoin comes the ripple effect to other less dominant coins such as MIOTA. The digital asset had recently recovered from the terrible levels back in August when it was valued at $0.46. At the end of August, MIOTA had managed to climb to $0.77. Those gains have since been eroded away as the digital asset is now trading at $0.55 due to the Goldman Sachs fake news.

The general short-term direction of the crypto markets is one of uncertainty. But 5 years down the line, we will be laughing talking about how a small market dip in 2018 made us panic.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
