CX is a general purpose, interpreted and compiled programming language, with a very strict type system and a syntax similar to Golang’s. CX provides a new programming paradigm based on the concept of affordances, where the user can ask the programming language at runtime what can be done with a CX object (functions, expressions, packages, etc.), and interactively or automatically choose one of the affordances to be applied. This paradigm has the main objective of providing an additional security layer for decentralized, blockchain-based applications, but can also be used for general purpose programming.


Discovery is a key value store currently run by Skycoin, that messaging clients as well as servers use to advertise themselves to other clients. It allows clients to connect to messenger servers. These in turn act as relays between clients so they can exchange data (messages) over TCP/IP and allows a stable way of communication between nodes. (Enables routing)
