Compound’s Gateway is an interest-bearing stable-coin bridge between compatible DeFi blockchains . Amongst many other things, Compound’s Gateway allows you to upload an asset of your choosing (as collateral) and then borrow a different asset (against your collateral). More on on borrowing below, please read on 😊
Compound’s Gateway is built on Substrate; a modular framework that enables you to create purpose-built blockchains by composing custom or pre-built components .
As highlighted by Compound Finance … “We chose Substrate so that we could focus on building application code, instead of inventing consensus algorithms; it’s a modern framework built on a…

This article shows you how to translate a menu without any need to download an app. This optical character recognition (OCR) & language translation technology, of course, has much broader usage scenarios. However, sometimes it is good to focus on a niche use case in order to reach a specific target audience.
A recent article of mine mentioned that web application building is moving away from the traditional onerous process of (the application developer) needing to run servers.
We now know that there are many free-to-access API endpoints which will provide raw data (such as the Solar System Open Data API, which we introduced in the previous article).
JAMstack is a new approach to building websites and web applications (Utomo, 2020). The Stack, part, in JAMStack refers to the fact that we are talking about many separate layers of technology, which when combined are able to deliver a complete web site or web application.
From a stack comparison standpoint, another common & well-known stack, for delivering Web sites and web applications, is the LAMP stack.
LAMP, circa 1998, is a combination of Linux, PHP, MySQL and Linux.
As you can see from…
This article is inspired by a Rust programming video  featuring David McKay  and Jane Lusby . The aforementioned video demonstrates how to create an anagram finder, natively in Rust.
This anagram finder interests me greatly because I have been searching for a use case (potential scenario) where a remote client-side user (the caller who needs the anagram challenge solved) can submit only a tiny amount of data (some random letters) and let a server-side Function as a Service(FaaS) do everything else.
For example, the anagram finder (FaaS) would be responsible for:
The original results showed that the Wasm VM was able…
This article shows you how to implement cutting-edge information technology (IT) services without any of the traditional costs associated with server-side infrastructure. How? By implementing Function as a Service (FaaS) technology.
When we refer to costs, we are not only talking about the costs of physically running and maintaining on-premises (in-house) server infrastructure. These costs are huge, granted! FaaS technologies also help reduce loss of revenue as agile competitors (like startups) attempt to displace traditional businesses (which have slower and less agile IT infrastructure).
Lean startups move along two intertwined paths a) modifying and adapting their value proposition to changing…
I wrote an article called “Strings in WebAssembly” a few months back. At the time of writing the article I was attempting to perform the obligatory “hello world” example in a new language; WebAssembly (also referred to as just “Wasm”).
A lot has happened since then!
Imagine having a tiny web-enabled hand-held hardware device (such as RaspberryPi or Arduino) which you could use to summon answers to problems that require immense computation (memory and storage far beyond what that physical device in your hand could offer).
This article describes a free, cloud agnostic ecosystem which provides safe and private storage…
The WebAssembly Summit was held in Silicon Valley, on the 10th February 2020. The venue, Google’s newest building at 1625 Plymouth St Mountain View CA.
This extremely well organised event kicked off with a clear message for its new WebAssembly community …
“Be actively awesome to each other!”
