With this beta phase we have put our Tangle Universe project on a completely new basis. This was especially necessary because many of the planned new features that will come with the BETA 2.0 phase cannot be implemented with the old base. The features of the Alpha test phase that were tested positive were still retained and some new features were created with this BETA 1.0 version:
• More user-friendly entry mask
• Filterability of the category on the world map
• Listing partners can generate news
• Listing partners can create their own profile in addition to the listing.
With the news opportunity, we have created the first step towards dynamic exchange. But we don’t want it to stay that way. With the future Tangle Universe BETA 2.0 project we have some plans. We want to create a win-win situation between our listed partners and potential users from industry and commerce. Tangle Universe will thus become a very lively project in the future, enabling industrial partners and potential venture capital and funding providers to optimally exchange information with the IOTA and Tangle spectrum. We will enable larger and also smaller companies from industry and commerce, which fit thematically to IOTA and Tangle applications, to register separately, so that they can experience the full spectrum of the possibilities of IOTA and Tangle on this platform through our Listing Partners. Thus, the providers of information and networks through our “Supporter” & “Events” will provide the important basic information, the interesting IOTA “Projects”, and “Applications” will bring the practice closer, the listed experienced service providers and their services for IOTA will be contacted and used quickly and the user can also quickly get to know the trading opportunities through our “Exchange” partners, a selection of developers in this environment can help realize projects. With this we would like to help to promote cooperations, partnerships and contract awards with our Listing Partners through an exchange of information as well as to increase the possibilities of financial contributions for our Listing Partners. In the future, we will implement a number of measures to make this possible.
Tangle Universe BETA 1.0
After basic tests with the alpha phase of our Tangle Universe project were carried out and important information about the functions could be collected, the beta version of the Tangle Universe project is now published. Already during the Alpha test phase, we could win many partners and so we enter the BETA 1.0 test phase with nearly 40 listings. But that’s not all.
The Tangle Universe Project is more than only a database project that should facilitate the search for suitable services. The aim is to further disseminate the technology of IOTA and Tangle and also to point out to newcomers as well as companies the important services, projects and contact points.
With this beta phase we have put our project on a completely new basis. The features of the Alpha test phase that were tested positive were retained and many new features were created.
The most important new features will be briefly presented here:
• More user-friendly entry mask:
The clarity has been improved. Listing partners can now see their entry options on one page. The superfluous has been omitted and further important fields have been created.
• Better design and clarity of listing:
The clarity of the detail view of the listing is to be significantly improved. However, the best design is still being worked on.
• Easy filtering of the category on the world map:
Different symbols have been assigned to the categories. You can filter according to these symbols on the world map of the tangle. Thus all categories can be displayed individually on the world map, but also a selected selection.
• Possibility for listing partners to generate news:
With this feature we give our listing partners the opportunity to bring their news directly to our blog. A selection opens the possibility to directly display the news assigned to the listing in the listing.
And what happens next? We are working at full speed on the BETA 2.0 version, which will then really offer numerous fundamental innovations. But for the implementation we need your support and start a 1-month donation campaign. Every donor will receive a premium access to our platform in the future, which is equipped with premium functions.
But we would like to introduce the new features to you right now.
Tangle Universe BETA 2.0
We have a lot of other features in mind for the future. The Tangle Universe project doesn’t just want to be a static platform where certain partners are only listed. With Tangle Universe we want to create a living, independent network that makes a difference. It should become a platform that contributes to projects being implemented, cooperations being concluded and IOTA projects, applications and services being able to find their partners and donors. We believe that such a network can be a building block for the further development of IOTA and the Tangle applications.
We would like to expand our project with several additional areas that can be used by our listed partners or premium supporters:
Partner & Cooperations
There is a whole range of large and also smaller companies whose orientation could fit very well to some of the listed partners. Many of these companies may not know anything about IOTA, its applications and benefits. We will approach companies that we believe may fit quite well, with the aim of getting involved in this project and experiencing IOTA and the Tangle opportunities first hand through our listed partners. We have already received feedback from some of the larger companies that they would be happy to participate. We want to create a platform where cooperations between companies and certain IOTA services or applications can form and thus mutually enrich each other. The possibilities in supply chain, smart city, automotive, e-health, energy etc. are almost limitless.
Supporters & Venture Capitalists
There are a number of companies and sponsors who, for a variety of reasons, support certain projects so that they can be realized or further advanced. This happens sometimes also beyond the public. These partners can register with us in the future and look for the exchange with our listed partners and projects.
Donations & Public IOTA Award
We will start a 1 month donation event for this Tangle Universe project, which will make the financing of BETA 2.0 possible. Furthermore, we will initiate a public IOTA Award with the donations, where special achievements of our listing partners will be honored regularly.
News & Dissemination
Already with this BETA 1.0 version the possibility of publishing news through our listing partners was created. In the future, these news will also be sent to recipients with the Tangle as MAM data.
A so-called donation carousel is launched for our premium supporters. With this donation carousel it will be possible from BETA 2.0 to distribute incoming donations equally to all partners who have registered for it. This is possible because the IOTA transactions can be carried out without a fee and therefore micropayment is suitable. This means that even smaller amounts can be divided among several listing partners without incurring any costs.
Monetization of premium content
Our premium supporters will have the opportunity to monetize particularly valuable content on our platform. This can be texts, pictures, videos, program codes etc…
