Very interesting! I've read a few posts on Deno and it certainly sounds promising. From the standard library and the intended purpose I think that this is a backend oriented language.

I'm interested if because Deno runs on the Tokyo runtime, which is built in Rust and which has very strong type system, is the type system of Deno (TypeScript) improved over the JavaScript based TypeScript? Or the TypeScript type safety is the same in both?

The Deno TS Compiler is an improvement of the JS based TS. Because TS is compiled internally, TypeScript feels more native as compared to a JS implementations of TS. The eventual goal is to use swc, a rust compiler to compile TS but this hasn't been implemented yet
