In this edition of Haskell in Production series, we interview Jean-Pierre Rupp, the main developer of a set of Haskell libraries for Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash. Read the interview to learn about the benefits of Haskell and why it is such a frequent choice for blockchain applications.
Our first guest on the Functional Futures podcast was Brooklyn Zelenka, the co-founder & CTO of FISSION. Listen to our interview with her to find out more about functional programming, the Witchcraft library, and the good and bad sides of Web3.
Once deployed, large-scale smart contracts can sometimes become outdated and require upgrades. In this part of our Lorentz series, we show how to make a smart contract with upgradeable storage in Lorentz.
This is the second post in a series about Lorentz — a Haskell eDSL for the Michelson smart contract language. In this post, we will enrich Lorentz with additional functionality, adding objects with multiple fields.
Together with the TQ Group, we have been working on several tools that use Haskell to improve writing and testing Michelson code on Tezos. This is the first post in a series about one of them — Lorentz, a Haskell eDSL for Michelson smart contracts.
The results of the TON smart contracts contest are out, and our team has got the largest cash award. In this article, we give a brief intro to our submission and talk about our experience during the contest.
If you’ve been on the Internet the last few days, you’ve probably heard of Libra, Facebook’s new venture into blockchain technology. Their goals are far-reaching — “to enable a simple global currency and financial infrastructure that empowers billions of people”.
In this article, we review their recently released white paper.
