The Tezos Foundation is thrilled to announce that Simple Staking, led by Juraj Selep, has received a grant to implement a secure, trustworthy, and open-source Tezos node in the Rust programming language. Increasing the diversity of Tezos nodes will help contribute to the formation of a more robust, accessible, and decentralized network.

Rust is a popular programming language with a focus on safety. For the third year in a row, Rust maintained its position as the most loved programming language in Stack Overflow’s annual developer survey, which polled over 62,000 developers. The Simple Staking team will collaborate with Nomadic Labs and other Tezos developers for this project, and will also attend conferences and events to increase awareness and adoption of Tezos in the Rust and larger blockchain development communities.

The Tezos Foundation’s core mission is to support the long-term success of the Tezos protocol and ecosystem. By funding projects imagined by scientists, researchers, developers, entrepreneurs, and enthusiasts, the Foundation encourages decentralized development and robust participation.
