Kompendium Announces Official Release of Haskell RPC Client Library for Factom Blockchain

Kompendium, one of the 28 Factom Authority Node Operators, and a specialized software development company working on data integrity and information services, is excited to announce the creation of a powerful Haskell JSON-RPC client library for the Factom blockchain.  

The Factom protocol is built to leverage the security and immutability of blockchain for the purpose of securing data. The protocol is a standalone blockchain solution that can exist as a layer above any blockchain (currently Bitcoin & Ethereum), allowing for data to be published and secured continuously in real-time, without the need to handle crypto-currency.

Several programming languages are popularly used in the making of blockchain: Haskell, C++, Java, Python, Rust, and more. Haskell, type-safe and the most prominent functional programming language, is considered one of the best suited languages for building blockchain applications. It is designed for safety and provides for mandatory automated checks, ensuring the elimination of certain kind of mistakes in the code. Prominent features of Haskell also include memory safety, speed, ease of understanding code, and absence of unwanted side-effects. Haskell has a very active developer community and is a wide-spectrum language, suitable for a variety of applications, particularly for programs which need to be highly modifiable and maintainable.

Kompendium developed the Haskell RCP client library to bring new developers and energy into the Factom ecosystem and to facilitate and support the further development of value-adding applications atop the Factom protocol.

The Haskell RPC Client Library for the Factom blockchain can be found here: https://github.com/kompendium-llc/factom-haskell-client

Please monitor Kompendium’s company blog and other Factom Protocol community announcement forums for future Kompendium developments and updates.

Thanks for reading and your support!
