Blockchains enable simple, transparent, and secure transactions. However, the distributed nature of the blockchain creates several challenges for blockchain applications and infrastructure providers.
Ensuring that a malicious or poorly written smart contract doesn't crash or block transaction processing for all blockchain users. (JIT-bombs)
Supporting determinism for smart contracts on heterogeneous infrastructure. (different chipsets and platforms must run a given same smart contract in the same way)
Scaling the number of smart contract executions as the number of blocks in a blockchain increases.
JIT-bombs slow down or block smart contract processes due to malicious or poorly written code. Wasmer's Singlepass compiler helps eliminate JIT-bombs, enabling blockchain providers with a high-quality-of-service infrastructure for their applications.
Wasmer's blockchain infrastructure ensures that the outcome of each smart contract execution returns the same result regardless of the underlying infrastructure. (e.g., x86_64, ARM, etc.)
The Wasmer compiler engines and runtime ensure high-performance compilation and code execution without any miscompiles.
Wasmer is an open-source runtime for executing WebAssembly on the Server.
