As the Web 3 grows every day, new programming languages enter the space. However, the lack of developers hinders its progress. EpicGames announces a Verse programming language for Metaverse. The aim of the verse is to engage the community in a rich language. With this, Verse joins Clarity, Solidity, Curry, Mercury and Rust programming languages.
Verse is an open-sourced functional, and declarative logic language (such as Curry and Mercury) that has an unusual static type system (types are first-class values). Verse is Ienient, because in anything in the end it is judged only when it is “ready”. It can’t be strict because it involves call-by-value (functions can be called before the argument has a value). Rather than using nomads, it has an effect system.
Verse is very ambitious as it extends from end users to professional developers with transactional memory at scale and strong stability guarantees. Verse is scalable to running code and supports billions of users. Its compile time guarantees that it will include the API model of the previous version. Verse is expandable and can be learned as a first language,5 strengthening over time without breaking code. Epic Games’ upcoming projects contain MaxVerse and ShipVerse. Earlier, NVIDIA offered a real-time graphics cooperation platform named Omniverse.
About 60 percent of Web3 developers entered the industry the previous year, an all-time high, according to developer analytics firm SlashData. This still represents only a small fraction of the world’s 31.1 M software engineers by the first quarter of 2022. This becomes a major problem due to the lack of knowledge of specialized programming languages used to create smart contracts on Solana and ETH cryptocurrencies.
Although Rust is fast approaching, Solidity is presently the most widely used Web3 language, with more than 4,000 developers using it every month on the ETH blockchain alone. Rust is used with cryptocurrencies and blockchain and delivers code faster. In the Bitcoin Web3 environment, Clarity is specifically built for building smart contracts and decentralized applications, or dApps. Currently, Verse is joining the league of Web3 programming languages. Let’s wait and see how it affects the Metaverse.
