Rust seems like the clearest way out of our bind. It's a high-level language & more expressive than C. It has innovative features that let the language enforce safety properties at compile-time. That's a huge win for us in programming time and for users in security & reliability.

Although C is venerable and ubiquitous, it's error-prone to use, and its lack of high-level features make many programming tasks more complex than they'd be in a more modern language. For us, these problems mean that programming in C is a slow and painstaking process.

Thanks to funding from ZcashOMG, we can finally move the Arti project up in our priorities list!
