Welcome to r/IOTA!
The r/IOTA sidebar, on the right, contains helpful links to IOTA resources and community-created tools.
It is important to keep your IOTA software (Trinity Wallet, or IRI) updated, in order to maximize your performance and security. Latest version numbers are in the sidebar.
Be careful when generating a [seed](https://blog.iota.org/the-secret-to-security-is-secrecy-d32b5b7f25ef) to use with your IOTA wallet. **Never give your IOTA seed to anyone and NEVER use an online seed generator.**
Please use this thread to share information, thoughts, and project ideas! Ask questions and, if you know the answer, help others learn! Teaching somebody else is often a great way to gain a deeper understanding of yourself.
* Bigger topics, major news, and special announcements can be submitted as a new post.
* For a discussion about IOTA market activity and investment, instead please visit r/IOTAmarkets.
Guidelines for participation? See the rules in the r/IOTA sidebar, but they really are quite simple:
* **Be excellent to each other.**
Thank you, and enjoy your stay!
