WASM (Web Assembly) is relatively new. How does EOS make use of WASM? And are there other blockchains working with WASM?

1 Answer 1


Smart contract in EOS are developed in C++, then compiled into wasm code using eosiocpp (or eosio-cpp) and uploaded to the blockchain using cleos set contract. Why wasm? Read this post, basically for speed performances. Ethereum also seems to want to use wasm, there is a project called ewasm.

  • Aside from ethereum. What other blockchains are taking this approach? Oct 5, 2018 at 16:07
  • @Patoshiパトシ ontology, polkadot, dfinity, hyperledger, probably more
