IOTA Foundation has launched the alpha version of its Chronicle a full permanode framework for decentralized storage on its network. This is a solution where the IOTA network can store all of IOTA transactions permanently. The foundation introduced the Chronicle last year in 2019 as an official permanode solution and now the project is in the alpha stage.
An improved version of the Chronicle with new features
After introducing the Chronicle in the community, IOTA Foundation has been working on improving its features. Now, they have come up with a newer improved version of this decentralized storage framework with new exciting features. As announced by the IOTA Foundation, node operators can store IOTA transactions permanently with the help of this permanode tool regarded as the Chronicle.
The improved version comes up with various changes. First of all, the company has ported the Erlang programming language of the Chronicle into Rust. This will provide a more secure programming environment and greater interoperability. Apart from this, the Chronicle is very easy to use. It has a CLI application that lets you spin up permanode within minutes.
Another improved and exciting feature of this decentralized storage network is that it offers users greater flexibility. Users can customize by creating their own solutions with the framework. For instance, they can set a time period for how long they want to keep their transactions, what kind of storage solution they desire to use, and they can choose what kind of data to store on the network.
After releasing its Chronicle completely, IOTA Foundation aims to bring more changes into it and focuses on extending this decentralized storage framework in the future. These include the development of a web-based dashboard to manage it and introducing a new way for the Chronicle for solidifying various transactions.
