Libra’s new programming language: Move
Soon after the announcement, Facebook unveiled the new programming language being used in the development of Libra. It’s called Move, and is specifically designed for blockchain transactions and enabling apps to transact with Libra, so that any accidental money disappearance or duplication is avoided.
Moreover, Move is an open source project, so developers can start building app updates and develop new services using the technology.
"One of the things that's powerful about Move is it's very expressive. Move can express things ranging from simple transactions like sending money to more complex transactions like how money is created and destroyed."Ben Maurer, tech lead at Calibra, Facebook’s Libra-focused subsidiary
Move is still a very new programming language primarily built for the development of Libra. However, it does have potential for app developers to build various applications for money transactions. Will Facebook be closely watching, learning from and tracking these developments?
