Huff is a new language that compiles to EVM bytecode. It’s like writing blockchain assembly, but with a few more features. I’m learning Huff to better understand the EVM and how to write MEV bots.

Initial Thoughts

  • It’s like writing raw opcodes, this is pretty fun.
  • The tooling seems good enough for now.
  • The Seaport method of returning strings took me about 3 days to start to understand.
  • By going through the Huff Puzzles, I’m starting to get a better understanding of EVM overall. It has given me a greater appreciation for it.


Huff isn’t for everyone. Admittedly, it’s a bit of a niche language for those who need to save gas on the EVM. It’s not a language I’d recommend for beginners. I’m putting it down for now.
