Tally is proud to become the first sponsor of the ethers library!
ethers represents the best of open source software development in Web3 and we’re proud to put our money where our mouth is when it comes to supporting free software. We’re also thrilled to support its creator RicMoo, an early Gitcoin grant recipient and contributor to a slew of important early crypto projects.
🤔 So... what does ethers do?
🧡 Why we love ethers
- It’s compact—ethers is about 1/20 the size of other libraries—and performant
- It’s easy for beginners to pick up and is exceptionally well-documented
- It’s 100% open source under the MIT License
We especially like it because...
- ENS names are first-class citizens - Nearly anywhere you’d use an Ethereum address, you can use an ENS name instead!
- Key management is a separate concern - Other libraries assume the developer is running a local node that both holds private keys and connects to the Ethereum blockchain. ethers assumes the user’s wallet holds their keys, which is a better match for the way dApps are built today.
🧱 A building block for the community
We’d like to take this opportunity to invite other teams to join us in becoming sponsors! While we are ethers’ first sponsor, we hope to be the only one for a short time.
