sCrypt is designed to facilitate writing smart contract running on chain. This is an online IDE that allows you to quickly get up and running.
- It is easy to learn. Syntactically, sCrypt is similar to Solidity, making it easier to be adopted by existing smart contract developers. However, the resemblance is only superficial, since sCrypt is compiled into Bitcoin Script by the underlying compiler, instead of EVM bytecode.
- It is statically typed. Type checking can help detect many errors at compile time.
