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.

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, a VC-funded UK-based company that aims to have all important logic 100% unit-tested, all public APIs 100% documented, all code reviewed by multiple peers and follows a pipelined 7-ish-week release cycle similar to the Rust compiler.

Parity comes with an extensive, in-built Ethereum Wallet and DApp environment. It includes:

  • Account, address-book and multi-sig management.
  • Key creation, importing and exporting.
  • Web3 ÐApp browser.
  • Hardware and electronic cold-wallet support.
  • Name registry support.
  • Contract development, deployment, and interaction environment.

Parity is actively developed as an open source project on github.
