Blockchain Framework | 4 Key Advantages of Using Erlang OTP

There are a number of distinct advantages that the Erlang programming language provides when it comes to developing a blockchain framework. 

In our latest blog post our friends at ArcBlock look at how they implemented Erlang OTP in building their platform which is used for distributed applications development.

“I first came to know Erlang/OTP through one of Joe Armstrong’s, where he broke down the world into processes that can talk to each other like humans. When I started at ArcBlock, we were tasked with building a blockchain platform, and we decided to use Erlang/OTP extensively for our backend services, as well as our blockchain framework - Forge. The reasons for that are described in this article, and because of the functions of OTP, we have been able to build a highly practical, production-ready blockchain framework that not only delivers critical services to run a blockchain network but greatly simplifies what is required for next-generation applications and services.”

For a deeper dive into using Erlang for blockchain development do join us for our guest webinar with VP of Engineering Tyr Chen from ArcBlock on Wednesday, 27th November at 17:30 GMT
