🌏 WASM could become the standard for blockchain development. This post argues that web assembly could replace EVM as a foundation for DApp development and pave access for development in multiple well-known languages like Rust, C++ and Kotlin. By Parity Technologies.
💵 Blockchain lending in one line of code. The Dharma team continue to impress. In this article they talk about using Dharma.js as an interface to the lending platform. Reminds me of Stripe’s famous “7 lines of code” — all that was needed to use Stripe for payments. By Kayvon Tehranian.
