Welcome to iota.lukaseder.de.
Welcome to one of the oldest IOTA nodes out there. You are watching the site from which most phrases are copied to other full node sites out there. (Whoa, cool stuff!)
IOTA is a crypto currency and DAG protocol, which sadly actually is a blockchain due to the coordinator forming blockchain like milestones. However IOTA has the potential to form the backbone of the IoT even though nobody actually does know how some of the problems will be solved.
iota.lukaseder.de and node.lukaseder.de are FQDNs referencing this node. If you want to use this node as your Light Wallet server, you can select this address or enter it manually: http://node.lukaseder.de:14265 . You can also use this node for your application, as long as you don't open too many concurrent connections. You can choose another node from www.iotasupport.com or iota.dance.
I hosted many services here beside this node. This also includes a daily database snapshot and some REST endpoints. This node even supported PoW for clients some time ago. I stopped to offer these services, because...
- ...they are reducing the IOTA node performance. The database snapshot for instance led to a reboot of the node 3:30 UTC every day.
- ...the download of the database issued traffic above 1,5 TB on some days due to direct linking of the database on github or iri setup tutorials.
I'm sorry for all the ppl who donated a total of 1.6 Mi. If you need a database download or any help, I honestly would issue another database export just for you. :D (Btw.: A database export can currently be found on the tutorial page of iota.partners.)
However this node is still (and will continue) serving it's main service: The IOTA Light Wallet service. Our aim is to provide one of the best Light Wallet Servers out there. Therefore this node offers various enhancements like increased keep alive times or protocol compression. You can even see the saved bandwidth on the "Load Statistics" page.
We are not supporting HTTPS. HTTPS would lure you into a false sense of security. Every transaction you make to the IOTA network will be visible for everyone. We will activate HTTPS if and only if this is necessary (meaning IOTA is broken) or if you pay us. (This page is only usin' HTTPS because of the google ranking.)
If you need a reliable node for your application, we can offer you either a dedicated node or an access to this node also accepting PoW requests. We of course will write you an invoice in this case. However we can't compete with price dumping providers. So if this is an issue, you should host a node yourself or find somebody who will administer one for you.
If you want to flame me, you can find me on Discord: Ghostie#1117 . I'm looking forward to discuss some interesting things also aside from IOTA. However, if you experience problems transferring some IOTAs or claiming your funds back, don't hesitate to contact other helpful people on Discord.
