Cryptocurrency programming languages you should learn
Many different computer programming languages are employed in cryptocurrency programming. In this article, we take a look at cryptocurrency projects and the languages they employ. We briefly discuss each language while highlighting their main characteristics, learning difficulty and how they are deployed in different crypto software projects. Haskell Haskell is the world’s only widely adopted […]
ELI5 Who is Nick Szabo?
Nick Szabo is an American cryptography specialist, known for pioneering work in digital currencies. Considered by many to be the father of smart contracts, a concept he developed in the 1990’s. A few years later, Szabo implemented Bit Gold – a digital currency which laid the framework for several ideas behind modern cryptocurrencies. In a […]
ELI5 How do Tezos Smart Contracts work?
Tezos smart contracts are natively written in Michelson – a purely functional, statically typed programming language. Note: See our cryptocurrency programming languages article, specifically the Haskell section, for reasons why purely functional statically typed languages are highly desirable for crypto development. Since Michelson isn’t very user-friendly, Tezos allows you to write smart contracts in various […]
