Picking the right programming language for Blockchain can have a huge impact on a Blockchain platform’s future success.
Security is obviously the main concern — not least because a vulnerability can have a fatal effect on confidence in a network. When selecting a programming language, this should be top of the list.
Given the fact that anyone can add to a blockchain and access the code, it’s also worth producing code — and building a network — that can withstand as many requests as users are willing to throw at it. If it’s unable to perform to the standard required, and buckles under the pressure because it’s not versatile enough, this could be disastrous for scalability and development in the future.
