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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
