Duration: 01:57:10

Speaker: Guillaume Ballet, Alex Beregszaszi, Casey Detrio, Paul Dworzanski

Type: Breakout

Expertise: intermediate

Event: Devcon 5

Date: Oct 2019

Starting with a brief introduction, we explain the challenges, design directions, and the work done in the last 12 months. We conclude with a roadmap of Ewasm. The session will consist of four parts: 1. Introduction 2. Speed, Size, and Extensibility – a honest report of Wasm in Ethereum (aka "The Benchmarking Report") 3. Is Wasm suitable for blockchain? This part will explain the changes (if any) needed for Wasm, questions relevant to blockchain, and solutions developed and proposed. 4. Roadmap
