C++ smart contract

Write smart contracts in C++ powered by QANplatform

The new era of smart contracts by QANplatform has arrived.

The QAN Virtual Machine (QVM) allows developers to write smart contracts in any programming language. This is a breakthrough for the whole blockchain ecosystem since most blockchain platforms are only compatible with the Ethereum smart contract language, Solidity.

Launching in 2023, QANplatform will be the first quantum-resistant Layer 1 hybrid blockchain platform where developers can write smart contracts in any programming language. Before the official private and public blockchain launch, QAN is publishing some puzzle pieces of its upcoming technology, such as the QVM, where developers can test the multi-language smart contract feature on the Ethereum Sepolia Testnet as a Layer 2 smart contract execution engine.

Following the Go (Golang) smart contract, JavaScript (JS) smart contract, C smart contract, and TypeScript (TS) smart contract sample release, QANplatform is releasing the documentation and the first smart contract sample for C++ programming language.

C++ programming language

Developed by Bjarne Stroustrup in the early 1980s, C++ is a high-level programming language that is an extension of the C programming language. C++ provides object-oriented features such as classes, inheritance, polymorphism, and encapsulation, which make it a powerful language for developing complex software systems. It is also a compiled language, meaning that the source code is translated into machine code that can be executed directly by a computer.

According to GitHub and Stackoverflow statistics, C++ it the 6th most popular programming language. According to Statista there are 11 Million developers who can code in C/C++.

C++ is widely used in the development of software applications, operating systems, device drivers, embedded systems, and video games. According to GitHub and Stackoverflow statistics, C++ it the 6th most popular programming language. According to Statista there are 11 Million developers who can code in C/C++.

Its flexibility and efficiency make it a popular choice for software developers and companies  — like Apple, Facebook, Google, etc. — who need a high-performance programming language that can handle complex tasks. C++ is also a popular language for competitive programming and algorithm development due to its speed and low-level control over system resources.

Write smart contracts in C++

However there are some C++ samples, libraries, SDKs, and APIs where developers can interact with a blockchain (e.g. query the blockchain, send transactions, interact with a node), there are only few blockchains where developers can code smart contracts in C++. QANplatform allows developers to build: smart contract, DApp, DeFi, DAO, token, CBDC, NFT, Metaverse, and Web3 solutions in C++.

Benefits of C++ smart contracts

Suppose you are a single developer looking to play around with blockchain. In that case, you can finally do that since you are not forced to learn a new programming language in your free time, like Solidity - which you could only use for specific purposes. Instead, you can use your current C++ knowledge that you may possibly already mastered for several years or even a decade.

If you are a CEO, CTO, CINO, CBDO looking to innovate with blockchain technology you can benefit from QANplatform’s multi-language smart contract feature as well. No need to hire or train Solidity programmers, since you can already use your inhouse development team or your current IT partner. It makes talent acquisitions, development, and codebase maintenance easier and cost-efficient for enterprises.

It’s time to write your first smart contract in C++

Blockchain platforms only reward validators (miners, stakers) and node providers in their own utility tokens; however, smart contract developers are the ones who are building use cases and products on the blockchain to reach mass adoption. Imagine that GitHub would reward developers when their code is getting re-used by others. QANplatform will reward developers on the QAN MainNet; therefore, you can already prepare some code libraries while playing around with QAN Virtual Machine and C++ smart contracts.
