Waves Blockchain Platform presented update node 0.17. This innovation made the RIDE programming language available for dApps. This information magazine ForkLog received from the company.
An important advantage of the language is the ability to program with virtually no errors, since the language protects against this. This saves time on debugging bugs.
This update allows you to create applications for Web 3.0 based on the Waves blockchain ecosystem. RIDE for Dapps is the ability to add programming features to your account. They greatly expand the possibilities: now you can change the status of your account, accept payments using your account and send other tokens.
The developers of the Waves blockchain ecosystem have integrated the new InvokeScriptTransaction team. It is written in the blockchain and it calls the function. For this, the sender is a commission to the miner WAVES for performing this function. After these actions, the state of the contract can be changed.
It is worth recalling that at the beginning of this month, blockchain platform Waves updated its website and announced the transition to Web3.0.
