I am aware that IOHK maintains three Cardano client codebases.
- Haskell Cardano Node
- Jormungandr Rust implementation
- some experimental impl that I don’t have much input about
Are there any community driven or independently developed node implementations? If not, is there a reason why?
I am convinced that implementation diversity is a key feature every technology should aim for. Even if only to increase resilience against black swan events. And I would like to help work towards that goal.
EDIT: I find it very interesting that I wrote that post 3 hours before Charles Hoskinson livestreamed the Mantis client introduction for Ethereum Classic
