Developer Resources

Powered by

Aleph Zero is the largest blockchain that uses ink!, a Rust-embedded domain-specific language (eDSL) that compiles to WASM. While that concept might be new to you, if you're Rust or Solidity developer, you'll be up and running in no time.

Why did we choose it for Aleph Zero?
  • ink! possesses type and memory safety, which prevents overflows from occurring;
  • Existing tools for Rust work for ink!;
  • Inheritance by using Rust's traits;
  • Existing libraries may be used if they can be compiled with the no_std feature. This is one of the bigger advantages of ink!.
