Chain, the high performing native blockchain solution, is set to make transaction flows between crypto users and merchants accepting crypto seamless, cost-efficient and secure.

The core of Chain is being written in Rust, the multi-paradigm systems programming language that centres on safety, reliability and efficiency.

Why Rust?

According to Blockchain Engineer and Researcher in Group Strategy Tomas Tauber, there are three reasons:

First, it is Rust's ability to offer the performance of C / C++, while being memory-safe and free of data races. This is established among the majority of Rust commercial users, such as Mozilla, Google, Dropbox, and Facebook.

Second, Rust has gained significant momentum in the blockchain space. With Parity, Blockstream, IOHK, Binance and many others using Rust, there is an ever-growing ecosystem of great cryptocurrency-related open source libraries and applications in Rust.

Third, the Chain will utilize the Trusted Execution Environments (TEE). One of its supported TEE platforms is going to be Intel SGX. Furthermore, Baidu X-Lab developed and maintains an excellent SDK that enables writing Intel SGX applications in Rust.
