# Why Rust Is Ideal For Blockchain Development
Rust is one of the best programming languages for blockchain due to its highly-capable mechanism of handling mutable states. Also, the Rust compiler provides awe-inspiring optimization for blockchain.
The fast, memory safe, and exclusively concurrent nature of this blockchain coding language makes it most suitable for developing real-world blockchains.
Every day more and more blockchain projects choose rust; parity, polkadot, cardano rust, ethereum classic, exonum, grin, substrate, lighthouse, Nimiq. Do you want to know why?
During this meetup, Roberto Huertas will make a talk about Getting to know Rust, for all of those who don’t know the language and want to know more about it. Also, he will present the rust community in Barcelona, and the celebration of then next RUSTFest edition to be held in Barcelona this Fall, an event in which Caelum Labs is a co-organizer.
Alex Puig will talk about why rust is one of the best programming languages for blockchain. There is a vast difference between "program correctness was checked by tests" and "program correctness was logically proven".
Rust as a language is different. Not because of its fancy syntax or welcoming community, but because of the confidence one gains when writing a program in it.
