My name is Chris Veselinov, CTO of LimeChain, and I’m writing this thread to propose the phase 2 development and funding of Gosemble - a Framework for building Substrate-compatible Runtimes in Go.
As mentioned in the previous proposal, the only current option for developing runtimes is Substrate. We believe this lack of diversity inhibits the decentralization ethos that is inherent to blockchain technology. Additionally, Rust, the language in which Substrate is written, is known for its steep learning curve.
We are excited about Phase 2, as modularising the codebase and developing additional modules will enhance progress and allow for an alternative framework to Substrate in Go. This will increase developers adoption by making it more accessible to the broader Go development community and contribute to the decentralization and security of the protocol.
We’ve also outlined the value proposition of Gosemble in a document here.
To sum it up: There are two main reasons why we’re building Gosemble:
