In which programming language will the platform be developed. I’ve read that you will use wasm to be open to every programming language, which I find it great but I’m asking myself in which language(s) different (key) core functionalities of the platform will be written.
Networking and Node is written in Scala.
Execution Engine for smart contracts is written in Rust.
Wasm for contracts with initial support for Rust and more compatible Wasm languages in the future.
Integration Testing of the system with Python.
Our current Testnet is implemented Scala (P2P & Consensus) and Rust (Execution Engine). However, we are moving towards a Rust only implementation, which we are expecting to launch in Q3 as Testnet Delta.
We support contracts in Rust or AssemblyScript, allowing developers to write blockchain apps in any Web Assembly (WASM) compatible language. We also offer a full SDK with a VM runtime environment for Rust, complete with a test framework. Developers can use the IDE of their choice, and easily run their contracts in their Continuous Integration environment. This means over 95% of developers can write a blockchain app on CasperLabs network without any special training. This is a huge advantage.
