Recursion in Elixir, We Don't Get No Loops!

13 Sep 2020 1 minute read 2 comments Nolan Mayersky

As Elixir is a purely functional language, it doesn’t have loops. Instead, it uses a wide variety of recursive functions to achieve the same or better results. Below is an example of a list and calculating it's length. This shows how recursive funct...

I have no idea. It all depends on how much gets staked. What's got me interested is the fair distribution of it. No pre-sales, team allocations, or private funding. So, I figured I'd give it a shot. There's 50 million being distributed the first week and 50% goes to NEO stakers/wrappers. So NEO gets the biggest lot of it.

Recursion in Elixir, We Don't Get No Loops!

Functional programming is more like describing what you want, rather than how to get it. ie: like this example, instead of creating a for-loop with an iterator variable and marching through an array doing something to each cell, you'd say the equivalent of "this label refers to a version of this array where this function has been done on all the elements." I think the most practical example of the need for functional programming is concurrency - functional programs are naturally thread safe and given the rise of multi core hardware this is of uttermost importance. This is one reason I'm learning Elixir. It's based on Erlang which uses the BEAM compiler. It's basically built for this purpose. Functional programming also increases the modularity - you can often see methods/functions in imperative that are far too long - you'll almost never see a function more than a couple of lines long. And since everything is decoupled - re-usability is much improved and unit testing is very very easy. A lot of this extends into other programming paradigms too as functions still exist there. So, really it's just going to make you better overall and change the way you think a bit.

Learning Elixir a Functional Language

The whole functional approach is new to me. Feels so weird having immutability and no objects. I usually program in Ruby and Crystal, so it's a totally different world. Elixir is quite nice though. The syntax is very friendly. Somewhat similar to Ruby and Crystal, which is one of the main reasons I decided to give Elixir a go.

Challenge accepted. :P I already have a repo with most of the code done for a blogging platform. Would just need some cleaning up and then integration with wallet(s) and some kind of mechanism for tipping/rewards. I'll work on it a bit more and keep you updated.

The Monero Project You Haven't Heard Of

Looks like a cool project. Definitely checking it out. I love privacy coins. One that is VERY undervalued right now is $LOKI ( It uses the same tech as Monero. But, they've also built a decentralized messenger ( that routes through TOR, and they have another piece of software in their ecosystem called LOKInet. LOKInet works like a TOR router, but it also allows you to access .loki domain names too! Been stocking up on it for awhile. It should be a top 100 coin easily.

Publish0x Vs. Steemit - A One sided Blowout!

30 Aug 2020 LeftAntiPC

30 August 2020
Idk how you can compare the two. They're completely different and doing 2 completely different things. Steem and Hive are on-chain decentralized solutions for content creation while P0X is a centralized blogging platform. You cant really have the drama of Steem or Hive on P0X because it's controlled by a central entity and there is no money or governance involved from the end-user. Also, I created a new account on Hive the other day. It was free and instantaneous. You don't have to wait to get an account anymore. At least not on Hive. I'm not too sure about Steem. Steem went down the drain when Sun took over and hijacked it with CZ Binance and his other cronies.
