This is a small update on Hercules as requested by the community. We had a fair amount of progress in the past few weeks even though our main project is taking most of our time. There are four areas we are working on that we want to have ready before a public preview (apart of cleaning up the code and [...]
Hercules is a species of carrot. It performs exceptionally well in shadow, heavy, or rocky soils where growing longer carrots can be challenging. Hercules is a survival genius — adaptable in a myriad of environments. Hercules is the missing link for Deviota. Over the past 9 months we have been thoroughly planning and developing an ecosystem as a foundation to build upon [...]
Over the past few weeks we have been working to encapsulate and open-source another library meant to be included in some way or the other into the final Deviota Manager. The result is quite interesting and it may serve the community as a playground and maybe as a catalyst for further innovation. Meet Deviota Romeo (ULL). What is Romeo? Simply put, [...]
Current stats A little more than a month after launching the Field project it is becoming a huge incubator for new IOTA nodes. In the past 24 hour alone over 150 new nodes have been launched — all thanks to the generous donations from our sponsors. This is a +25% Field growth! Each time there is a bigger donation and after the [...]
This is a small update on the current development of the Deviota Field service. For the past few weeks we have been working on a few “premium” features that have been enabled on the public load balancer. What is the load balancer? The load balancer is simply a server that distributes the requests to several servers from a pool. In [...]
Over the past few month we achieved tremendous advances with our Deviota milestones by releasing Nelson and Bolero tools. Our release date for the final Deviota product is being pushed back, because of the limited resources and the time involved to make those tools available not just for our product, but for the whole community. We believe that giving and [...]

This is a small, backwards-compatible upgrade from 0.2.x series with a few additional perks. The node owners are not required to upgrade, but it is advised as several trust/weighting issues have been fixed apart of the following new features: Dynamic IPs support Dynamic IP support means that your node can run on a dedicated server at home or even your [...]
Our limited alpha testing phase quickly turned into a soft launch as many members in the community were eager to try Nelson’s capabilities. Over a period of few days, the alpha testers have contributed a lot to make Nelson more stable and production ready. New nodes running Nelson were being added on a daily basis reaching at least over 230 [...]
Boy, it has been a long time since the last post about Nelson! Many sleepless nights and gallons of coffee down the road and with the Nelson’s alpha release in sight, here is a little less-technical explanation about the technology behind Nelson. Nelson creates a structured overlay network of nodes (a ”Nelson community”) and manages the neighbours of locally running [...]
This is a small update on Deviota project as requested by the community. An important issue we, the project and the IOTA in general is facing. One of the things we were working on for Deviota is a way to automatically discover IOTA neighbor nodes, but minimizing the associated risks of Eclipse or Uncooperative-Node attacks. Why? Let’s face it, the [...]
