WebAssembly (WASM) is the first standard for software that runs anywhere. This is a series of interviews with Andreas Rossberg (co-designer of WASM, DFINITY), Ben Tizer (WASM Team Technical Lead, Google), and Bradley Nelson (Chair of W3C WASM Working Group, Google)

WebAssembly is a portable low level software development standard designed to replace Javascript. Beyond the browser, WebAssembly is a system that allows software to be written once and run on all common hardware platforms, making it possible to eliminate the siloing of applications on specific platforms - IOS, Android, Windows, Mac.

WebAssembly is also designed in such a way that makes it perfect for programming blockchain applications. It is also part of the execution layer of the DFINITY platform.

The DFINITY project was formed to research ways of enabling public decentralized networks to host a virtual computer of unlimited capacity. This rests upon a new blockchain computer that is similar in concept to Ethereum but has vastly improved performance and ultimately, unlimited capacity.
