It has been 8 days since the launch of Libra by Facebook, attracting huge attention from not only blockchain industry, but also the entire internet industry.

What is Libra?

According to its White Paper, with a mission to enable a simple global currency and financial infrastructure that empowers billions of people, Libra aims to become a stable currency built on a secure and stable open-source blockchain, backed by a reserve of real assets, and governed by an independent association. Now it is certain that instead of being backed by gold, Libra will be backed by a collection of low-volatility assets, such as bank deposits and short-term government securities in currencies from stable and reputable central banks.

Meanwhile, Libra has released a multi-language official website and white paper, targeting the global monetary and financial services infrastructure for billions of people. Plus, a series of technical White Papers was also released, detailing its newly developed programming language Move and the consensus protocol LibraBFT. The Move language provides a secure and programmable foundation for the Libra blockchain. Like IOST, Move can also be used to develop smart contracts.

The World’s First IDE Supporting Libra

Developed by White Matrix, an IOST Partner Node, ChainIDE becomes the first online IDE supporting Move language. It enables developers to efficiently utilise this new language.

ChainIDE website:

An integrated development environment (IDE) is an indispensable application in software development that provides comprehensive facilities. It normally consists of at least a source code editor, build automation tools, and a debugger. For instance, Xcode is the official IDE for App development on Apple devices, and Visual Studio is for software development on Microsoft.

DApp Transformation Between IOST and Libra by One Click

ChainIDE supports not only gaming and DeFi DApps, but actually any scenario where a smart contract is needed. IOST is excited to see a relatively mature IDE supporting Move language successfully developed by our Partner Node, especially at the current stage, when the market has only obtained a preliminary understanding of this new language.

In the future, ChainIDE will function as a bridge connecting IOST and Libra, with DApps transformation between the two blockchains realized in one click.

Connect IOST to 2.7 Billion Users!

Online IDE made it possible for IOST to connect itself with users of the Internet giant Facebook and Ethereum.

Cross-chain solutions, which focus on data and asset exchange between different public chains, have gained increasing attention in blockchain industry over the last few years. IOST has also invested hugely in cross-chain technology.

IOST’s online IDE can support Ethereum’s Solidity and Libra’s Move, meaning that data, assets and other information among the three chains can better exchange. Powered by IDE, IOST integrated itself into Libra ecosystem prior to other mainnets, making it possible to enhance our brand presence among 2.7 Billion Facebook users.

IOST has always paid attention to cutting-edge technology in the industry and continued to advance in technology. The launch of Libra by Facebook has created an enormous hype in blockchain world, with mixed responses coming from stakeholders. IOST believes that the most important thing at present is to stay calm, learn and surpass competitors. Advancement in technology is the only thing pushing IOST forward, and the launch of ChainIDE is yet another demonstration of IOST’s focus. In the future, IOST will continue to work hand in hand with developers and communities to build the world’s first scalable and decentralized blockchain project AND the largest decentralization system!

Join The IOST Community!

In less than two months after the launch of mainnet, IOST has officially become the big 4 public chains alongside Ethereum, EOS and Tron. With exciting new developments such as OnBlock and other user adoption programs in the pipeline, IOST is excited to work hand-in-hand with developers and our community to build the world’s first scalable AND decentralized blockchain project and create global blockchain transformation.

If you would like to hang out with the IOST community on chat, social media or to discuss product development, we have something for everyone:
