What’s behind this silly name? Let me explain it.

Deltangle is the contraction of delta and tangle. and as it is clear from these two terms, it is a tool to store and update files in the tangle.

With deltangle you can do three things:

  1. Store a text file. In this case the content of the file is converted to trytes, divided into several transactions and published in the tangle in a single bundle. You will get a unique hash like this that will allow anyone to download the file using deltangle.
  2. Update a text file. In this case deltangle calculates the difference between the versions and stores a new file that contains this result. You will get a unique hash like this that will allow anyone to download the new version using deltangle.
  3. Control the published version of a text file. In this case, it uses MAIA to provide a fixed address to an updatable text file. You will get a unique hash like this that will allow anyone to download the version of the file that you want.

As it is mentioned, deltangle updates files by storing the difference in a new bundle, so it minimizes the number of transactions required to be stored.

In addition, it uses MAIA, which allows you to create a unique address for an updatable text file. Note that the use of MAIA is managed by deltangle, so the publication of versions is extremely simple.

Do you want to try it? Do it here. It is not yet an iota ecosystem project, but I hope it will be soon 😉

Emphasize that the site is a proof of concept. This means that many things have not been tried and the page can change or stop working at any time (and, of course, after a snapshot everything will be lost unless you connect to a permanode)

That’s all. In case you want to donate some IOTAs to support my work, send them to my donation address.
