The IOTA Foundation will be submitting the protocol for the IOTA Tangle to the OMG as a Request for Comments (RFC) later in 2021. This submission will be based on the Coordicide work carried out by IOTA Research, also known as IOTA 2.0. This will be submitted at the point when no further breaking changes are anticipated for the IOTA 2.0 protocol.
Full test version of IOTA 2.0 due in 2021?
As with the smart contracts RFI, we are still at the point of figuring out what we know in order to determine what to ask of people in industry, and who to ask. This RFI is in draft form and was not ready to issue in the June quarterly meeting, but we are hoping to be able to put it out in the September meeting cycle.
Smart Contracts Beta in September?
