i just signed up here to ask this question. Currently there is only one implementation of the aeternity node in Erlang. I think this is a security concern. If someone finds a major bug in the current node, they could take down the whole network easily.
I saw that there has been plans in building a node in Elixir, but it seems that the work on that one has stopped.
How does the aeternity team/community plan to overcome this issue? Are there other known teams working on implementations in a different language?
