Making Tezos smart contracts more reliable with Coq

06/24/2021 ∙ by Bruno Bernardo, et al. ∙ 0

Tezos is a smart-contract blockchain. Tezos smart contracts are written in a low-level stack-based language called Michelson. This article gives an overview of efforts using the Coq proof assistant to have stronger guarantees on Michelson smart contracts: the Mi-Cho-Coq framework, a Coq library defining formal semantics of Michelson, as well as an interpreter, a simple optimiser and a weakest-precondition calculus to reason about Michelson smart contracts; Albert, an intermediate language that abstracts Michelson stacks with a compiler written in Coq that targets Mi-Cho-Coq.
