I really like the ideas in this language, unfortunately it’s developed by blockchain enthusiasts and used for some kind of proof-of-work-based computing machine (pun not intended).
this is a new programming language, right? and the people who made it are also making a blockchain thing for it to run on. which made some people, including me, sad. so someone laments this, and someone else comes in:
The author writes in the Kindelia Readme:
There is no native coin. It is not a cryptocurrency. It is a cryptocomputer. Which to me says they’re focusing on the decentralized application portion of blockchains instead of the scam coins.
now, i wasn’t convinced. because, i’m no expert but, a blockchain can’t work without a currency, right? it’s part of the algorithmic foundation to have some token that the chain itself can reimburse participants with…
so how did they do this? did they finally invent a Good Blockchain?
website takes me to readme, “There is no native coin” ok but how? readme takes me to whitepaper:
It’s a marketing trick. “No native coin” just means that the coin is pluggable.
I’m going to commit crimes.
