Working with SmartFilters in Multichain 2.0
A Smart Filter is a piece of code which is embedded in the blockchain, and
which allows custom rules to be defined regarding the validity of
transactions or data. Smart Filters are written in JavaScript and run within a
deterministic version of Google’s V8 JavaScript engine, which is embedded
directly within MultiChain 2.0 alpha 5+. This is the same JavaScript engine
used in Chrome, Node.js and many other platforms. It offers excellent
performance by compiling JavaScript to machine code and continuing to
optimizing that code as it runs.
