What is Rust? 🦀

Rust is a programming language (developed by Mozilla) that is designed to be:

  • fast

  • concurrent

  • safe

Rust helps write faster, more reliable software.

High-level ergonomics and low-level control are often at odds in programming language design.

Rust challenges that conflict, by balancing powerful technical capacity and a great developer experience: it gives you an easy option to control low-level details, such as memory usage.

Rust is known for its strong emphasis on memory safety and security, making it a good choice for writing programs that NEED to be reliable and efficient.

It has a growing community of users and is becoming increasingly popular for developing a wide range of applications, such as:

  • systems programming

  • web assembly

  • machine learning.

Rust for Web3

Rust is also used in many Blockchains:

  • Solana

  • Polkadot

  • Ethereum

  • Hypereldger Sawtooth

  • Near Protocol
