Clarity Hack Launch!

Welcome to Clarity Hack, we're excited to introduce you to a new breed of smart contracts! We found ourselves wanting for a language that would make us feel confident we were doing everything we could to protect users -- so we built Clarity.

 

Clarity optimizes for predictability and security. It provides precise tools for enabling on-chain logic while reducing unintentional errors and eliminating whole classes of bugs. Clarity is a decidable, interpreted language, giving it a number of safety and security advantages while also making it much easier to reason about smart contract behavior, cost, and performance. 

 

But enough about that for now, you'll be getting very familiar with Clarity over the coming weeks as a part of this hackathon. Below, you'll find everything you need to enter, including a getting started checklist. 

 

If you run into any trouble or just want to say hello, you can message the team at community@blockstack.com or reply to this email.

 

Thanks for joining us, see you soon!
