Wavelet is a public, permissionless, leaderless, proof-of-stake blockchain that has been benchmarked to process over 31,240 payment transactions per second over 240 DigitalOcean instance (2vCPUs, 4GB RAM).

Supports smart contracts written in Rust (WebAssembly), with the ledger implementation written in the Go programming language. Everything is open-sourced.

    Have been waiting for this for a while -> https://github.com/perlin-network/smart-contract-rs/blob/master/examples/nft/src/lib.rs is a bit of an odd example; won’t memory usage go up infinitely the more tokens are issued

      Yep, in this case memory consumption byte-for-byte is charged. There is a bigger problem at scale though which is that the disk space needed to store the ledger state may grow indefinitely.

      We’ve got a solution in the works at the moment akin to having a central Wavelet network hub that acts as a Distributed Hash Table; connecting together smaller Wavelet networks together. Something like the internet of blockchains.
