Cardano’s Rust Bring in Third-Party Developers Without Needing Haskell

Charles Hoskinson, founder of Cardano and co-founder of Ethereum, announced earlier this week the new Cardano Rust Project. Rust is a toolbox of Cardano’s cryptographic primitives for third-party developers written in the Rust programming language. This new project aims to draw in a wider range of third-party developers, even those who are unfamiliar with Haskell, a programming language, with non-strict semantics and strong static typing.

Hoskinson when to elaborate the intuitive nature of Rust:
“It proves an important point, namely that the Cardano platform stands for itself, independent of its Haskell implementation. The Rust SDK serves as a proof of concept for the fact that any language can build on the Cardano platform.”

With the one year anniversary of the Cardano coin, the Rust project is an important milestone for the young company. Hoskinson believes that the project will be an important factor for the company’s second year with the digital asset.

IOHK, technology company using peer-to-peer innovations to provide financial services, founded in 2015 by Charles Hoskinson and Jeremy Wood, builds cryptocurrencies and blockchains, such as Cardano, for academic institutions, government entities and corporations. Since the beginning of Cardano, the company has reached several milestones as they have teamed up with the Ethiopian government to explore in blockchain in an effort to modernize the current systems in place such as coffee supply chain traceability. The company has also setup blockchain development training courses, in Barbados and Ethiopia.
