What is Scrypto?

Scrypto is a programming language that Radix is creating to enable the rapid and safe development of decentralized financial applications (dApps). dApps on Radix are formed out of components written in Scrypto that will run on the Radix Engine v2 execution environment. Scrypto is expected to heavily borrow syntax from Rust, but include specific asset-oriented features for DeFi app development based on a well-constrained FSM (finite state machine) paradigm.

Scrypto will be first available in preview form at the Alexandria release for early development experimentation, and will be deployable to the Radix Public Network at the Babylon release. More about Scrypto will be released later in 2021. To hear about it first, please sign up to our developer’s mailing list here
