C# (C-Sharp) 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), JavaScript (JS), C, TypeScript (TS), C++, Rust, Kotlin, Python, and Java smart contract sample releases, QANplatform is releasing the documentation and the first smart contract sample for Java programming language.

C# programming language

Released in 2000, C# (C-Sharp) is an object-oriented, general-purpose programming language created by the Microsoft team led by Anders Hejlsberg and Mads Torgersen.

C# syntax is similar to other C-style languages such as C, C++, and Java. However C# has become popular because of its ease of use, extensive framework support, and seamless integration with Microsoft technologies. It finds widespread usage in creating Windows applications, developing ASP.NET web applications, powering Unity game development, and building backend services.

According to GitHub and Stack Overflow statistics, C# is the 5th most popular programming language in the world. Statista’s data reveals that C# has a developer base of 10 million individuals who possess coding skills in the language.

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.
