Hint. What does the acronym DIWK represent?

Trinary Alphabet

// Declare the entire Trinary ( Balanced Ternary ) Alphabet in Go as a variable
var tryteAlpha string;
// Assign the value of the entire Trinary Alphabet in `tryte` to the variable `tryteAlpha`

Using the := operator in Go as a shortcut method …

// Declare and simultaneously assign the entire Trinary Alphabet to the variable `tryteAlpha`

Note. The GO compiler will infer string as the type of variable declared based on the assigned value.

Trits n Trytes

In the land of IOTA, we use base numbers of the Trinary ( Balanced Ternary ) computer language called Trits and Trytes.

A trit is the base digit within the Trinary computer language from which all Trytes are assembled.

A tryte possesses three (3) trit.

Hence, the TRI-nary computer language based on triple trit and their product the tryte.

Layers O Security

Three levels of security exist when expressing an address in the Trinary computer language.

If you choose the default level of security, you have selected the highest level, namely Level 3.

At Level 3 security within the Trinary computer language an address consumes a space filled with two-hundred and forty-three (243) trit.

Each tryte being of three (3) trit, one can easily decipher the number of tryte within an address of two-hundred and forty-three (243) trit by simply dividing by three (3).

Here, we have produced the product of eighty-one (81) by dividing the dividend of two-hundred and forty-three (243) trit by the divisor of three (3) to obtain the result in tryte.

But, what are tryte, you may ask?

Well, in the world of the Trinary computer language, a tryte represents a member of the Trinary computer language alphabet.

From which you may build an address.

Your Address

So, we need an address of eighty-one (81) tryte picked at random.

In the Trinary computer language, the numeral nine (9) represents the decimal concept of zero.

So, when you see a nine (9), think zero (0).

Other than this strange quirk, the balance of the alphabet for the Trinary computer language is fairly straight forward … for the Latin-based human language reading world, as follows:

Live Rendition

tryte trit decimal
9 [0,0,0] 0
A [0,0,1] 1
B [0,1,-1] 2
C [0,1,0] 3
D [0,1,1] 4
E [1,-1,-1] 5
F [1,-1,0] 6
G [1,-1,1] 7
H [1,0,-1] 8
I [1,0,0] 9
J [1,0,1] 10
K [1,1,-1] 11
L [1,1,0] 12
M [1,1,1] 13
N [-1,-1,-1] -13
O [-1,-1,0] -12
P [-1,-1,1] -11
Q [-1,0,-1] -10
R [-1,0,0] -9
S [-1,0,1] -8
T [-1,1,-1] -7
U [-1,1,0] -6
V [-1,1,1] -5
W [0,-1,-1] -4
X [0,-1,0] -3
Y [0,1,-1] -2
Z [0,0,-1] -1

Note. Notice how the flow of Latin-based uppercase (capital) letters from A-to-Z remains uninterrupted when scanning the table vertically … after hurdling the initial concept of zero.

However, not so on the decimal side (the right column) of the table.

Notice how the flow of decimals stops when scanning the table vertically at the junction of the decimals thirteen (13) and the numeral negative thirteen, or (-13).

The flow then restarts in negative reverse from negative thirteen, or (-13) through and inclusive of negative one, or (-1) at the end of the table.

Spooky, huh!

I’ll bet you’ll never look at the eight (8) ball again the same way when playing pool … it’s now an “H” in tryte!

Similarly, notice how the decimal numeral nine (9) is now an “I” in tryte

Even though the tryte letter nine (9) represents the decimal numeral zero (0).


Center O Trits

Smack in the center of the table is a collection of ones and zeros similar to the Binary computer language.

Here, however, in the Trinary computer language …

We use a combination set of three ( ones and zeros ) instead of the normal combination set of two ( ones and zeros ) as in the now familiar BI-nary computer language.

Plus, in the Trinary computer language …

We use negative ( ones and zeros ) in the formation of the corresponding combination set of three trit

As well as positive ( ones and zeros ) as is the case in the Binary computer language.

Por ejemplo

For example, the tryte “Z” is represented by a combination set of three trit

Namely, “zero, zero, and minus-one”, or [0,0,-1] …

Plus, the tryte “Z” also represents the decimal numeral negative-one or (-1) …


The key being, of course … the shared trit combination set of [0,0,-1].

Computing Eyes

So, when the computer sees the trit combination set of [0,0,-1] when compiling for the Trinary computer language …

It thinks the decimal numeral negative-one or (-1).

Conversely, when the computer sees the tryte “Z” …

It thinks the trit combination set of [0,0,-1].

Hence, the astronomical impossibility of cracking an address formed out of a set of eighty-one (81) tryte.

Evil Quanta

So, you are a nefarious one, heh?

And, you wish to crack your neighbor’s IOTA address, steal his or her coins, and purchase an island in the South Pacific.

Away from the toils and troubles of Hollywood gossip.

How do you do it?

In short, you would need a quantum computer chock full of entangled qubits suspended in superposition …

To even attempt to crack an IOTA address over at the Deep Data Pool network, or DDP before the death of our universe as we now know it.

But, that ain’t gonna happen until way after the year #2050.

In the interim, enjoy the IOTA DDP …!

One day you may just be funding a foray into its deep data depths for the benefit of your corporation, and your job!
