The New Smart Contract Language Scilla For More Security
To address the security issues of smart contracts, the company is introducing a new smart contract language called Scilla. It eliminates some of the known vulnerabilities of smart contracts directly at the code level by imposing a novel structure on the contract code.
The Scilla codebase is open-source and available for reviews and contributions at Github.
Among the contract security issues addressed are funds leaking, unexpected changes to critical state variables or having the contract killed by a third party. This is a reactive approach to the known problems with some smart contracts on the Ethereum platform.
Below a video demonstration of a Kickstarter-esque contract in Scilla:
