Frequently Asked Questions - Wiki Parity Ethereum Documentation

What is Parity?

Parity is an Ethereum client, written from the ground-up for correctness-verifiability, modularization, low-footprint and high-performance. To this end it utilizes the Rust language, a hybrid imperative/object-orientated/functional language with an emphasis on efficiency. It is professionally developed by Parity Technologies (formerly Ethcore); we aim to have all important logic 100% unit-tested, all public APIs 100% documented, all code reviewed by multiple peers, and follow a pipelined #6-ish-week release cycle similar to the Rust compiler.
