Think of it as a programmable Cardano node but without the staking and block verification components – just the P2P networking code. You can pick different network message types and develop your own […]
ELI5 Semi-formal Cryptocurrency Development
We’ve previously discussed formal software verification as related to crypto programming. Today we’d like to discuss an intermediary concept called semi-formal cryptocurrency development. Brief Review of Formal Verification In formal verification, every single possible logical state of a computer program must be mathematically proven. This kind of proof can consume tens, even hundreds, of pages […]
Building the Haskell cardano-node on Linux
tl;dr; Jump straight to the build instructions The Details Looking forward to the Haskell mainnet, the next step in the Cardano project, I’ve begun exploring the cardano-node Haskell implementation. I find that exploring source code is much easier if you actually watch the program run for a while. So, the first thing a developer has […]
