Everything you need to know about Leo — part 1
Leo is a Rust-based programming language with static typing designed for writing private applications. It is designed for developers who can intuitively build the Aleo blockchain, providing the foundation for a private, decentralized ecosystem. It is the first known programming language that introduces a testing environment, package registry, import converter, remote compiler, and theorem generator for ZKP applications.
First of all, let’s understand what zero-disclosure proof (hereafter we will call it “ZKP”) is. It is a method by which one party (the verifier) can prove to the other party (the verifier) that something is true without revealing any information other than the fact that this particular claim is true. In other words, you can affirm the truth of something without revealing how you know that truth and without communicating the content of that truth to the verifier. This principle is based on an algorithm that takes some data as input and returns either “true” or “false”
Absolutely all programs written in Leo are designed to work with Aleo record and transaction data. You must understand how you can access this data, as well as how to calculate it, as this is very important for writing absolutely any private applications.
Thank you all for your attention. In the next part I will tell you many amazing things about the Leo language!
