IOTA, a project dedicated to IoT (Internet of Things) has announced its latest updates.
This time too, the update refers to the management of the names of the various functions, previously too complicated and confusing.
This nomenclature change was made in anticipation of the launch of IOTA 2.0 and represents a first phase of the project. Once again, superfamily names were chosen Apoideatherefore, the metamorphosis previously started.
Going into details, we have 3 different name changes:
- The pollen It is the official IOTA 2.0 testnet, which represents a major change from the previous version GoShimmer v0.1.3. This testnet will serve as the basis for the foundation, the community and all the researchers who want to use it to test different things;
- Nectar, which will be launched in the second half of 2020, will allow the Coordicide modules to be fully implemented for a testnet with incentives, in order to exploit the control of possible errors and, at the same time, reward all those who actively participate in this phase, kinda like what He passed with Cardano (ADA);
- Honey, the final version for IOTA 2.0, which will include all the complete modules and the final specifications of Coordicide, a phase that will be very advanced and will already have several hours of testing under its belt and, therefore, ready for its launch on the network main at a later date time.
Finally, in the publication, the IOTA team points out that this analogy with the world of hymenopterans symbolizes the hard work of the people involved in the project, which is as complex as a neural network.
The analogy was chosen due to IOTA's network structure with all of its small actors contributing to the project.
The hope is that this new nomenclature will facilitate the team's coordination work so that there are no problems in the future.
The immediate result can already be seen in the comments to the tweet where IOTA announced this change: some people joke about the idea, but in general community feedback seems positive.
