RiB Newsletter #20 - Old fashioned chill

It’s a good time to be a skilled Rust programmer, especially for those of us into blockchain tech. This month we talked a lot about Rust smart contract platforms, including the possibility of creating a single Rust library that abstracts over multiple blockchain runtimes.

RiB Newsletter #19 - Rust and smart contracts

Since there’s not much else of note this month, let’s survey a topic that’s been on our minds recently: Rust and smart contracts. There are a number of blockchains that either run smart contracts written in Rust, or implement their smart contract runtimes or languages in Rust.

RiB Newsletter #18 – On to the Ribbles

This month, Oasis launched its mainnet. The Ethereum 2 beacon chain also went live. Parity and NEAR released many good videos. RiB editor Brian keeps documenting his experiments with Rust-based smart contract platforms, and yet another first-impressions post.

RiB Newsletter #17 – Trick? Or Trait?

Welcome to November, Rust blockchaineers. We hope you’ve been writing some great Rust. Though mostly not Rust-specific, the coolest stuff we’ve got for you this month are a bunch of interesting new papers on blockchain-related topics.

RiB Newsletter #16 – Secure Enclaves à la Crab

For the last few months we’ve been following new zero-knowledge proof projects in Rust. This month, with Secret Network upgrading their mainnet with secret contracts, it seems like a good opportunity to explore Rust blockchains that are using a completely different privacy-preserving technology: secure enclaves.
