    Toolchain for WebAssembly

    There's no reason you can't just use a JS-based WebAssembly interpreter for Argon2 hashing. I'm pretty sure there are ways to actually use pure WASM or Rust in Cloudflare Workers too. But to be honest I can't think of any use cases where you'd need to run such an expensive hashing algorithm in a Cloudflare Worker; if you're trying to hash passwords this isn't the right solution anyway.
