Qubic status update May 3rd 2019

April was a month of consolidation, yet still saw some serious improvements as well. Especially by the end of the month we made some great strides forward and had several breakthroughs, which is why this is again a short update. There is a lot of work coming up, and time is better spent doing that.

We’ll go deeper into the nature of the breakthroughs in our next status update, when we have been able to explore and verify their nature.

Ict

This month was largely spent cleaning up the latest version and fixing some bugs. Lukas also updated the documentation files to reflect the latest changes.

IXI

All IXI modules now communicate with Ict and each other through the EEE model. Benoit has been working hard on the serialization.IXI, which now has its first stable incarnation. Samuel did more work on the graph.IXI and timestamping.IXI, and started on the weighing.IXI. Lukas created ec.IXI, which now contains the Economic Clustering component for Ict.

FPGA

We have a new addition to the FPGA sub-team. Thomas Serbis (Serbeastio on Discord) has joined as full-time FPGA Design Engineer. This should finally give Donald some much-deserved relief.

For the rest there has been a lot of movement on the FPGA front. We have come to several important insights and are about to embark on a path that creates 3 (!!!) separate implementations of running trinary code on existing binary hardware. It will be interesting to compare these implementations to see which one performs best.

Qupla

We released part 5 and part 6 in the series of articles that explore the depths of the Qubic Computation Model (QCM). Stay tuned for at least two more articles in this series. We also released an extremely simplified ELI9 article that explains things in layman terms.

The quality of the generated Abra code has been seriously improved by tuning some existing optimizations and adding a few new ones. For the rest a lot of time was spent experimenting wi...

Progress by IOTA and the Tangle technology

IOTA is still a very young cryptocurrency but stands out against other cryptocurrencies. There are many reasons for this, which in sum can pave the way for a global standard. What does a global…
