Write smart contracts in Java - powered by QANplatform

The new era of smart contracts by QANplatform has arrived.

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, and Python smart contract sample releases, QANplatform is releasing the documentation and the first smart contract sample for Java programming language.

Java programming language

Developed by James Gosling and released in 1995, Java is a high-level, general-purpose programming language. Its primary advantage lies in its platform independence, allowing Java programs to run on any system equipped with a Java Virtual Machine (JVM).

Java is widely used in various domains, including web development, enterprise software development, Android app development, scientific computing, and more.

Java has maintained its position among the top four programming languages consistently since its introduction in 1995. While GitHub statistics rank Java at the third spot as one of the most popular languages, recent Stack Overflow data indicates that TypeScript has pushed Java down to the fourth position. Statista’s data reveals that Java has a developer base of 14 million individuals who possess coding skills in the language.

The ranking doesn’t really matter, as Java continues to be extensively used across the vast codebases of prominent companies such as Amazon, Google, Netflix, Pinterest, Spotify, Square, and Zoom.

However there are some Java 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 Java. QANplatform allows developers to build: smart contract, DApp, DeFi, DAO, token, CBDC, NFT, Metaverse, and Web3 solutions in Java.

Benefits of Java 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 Java 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 Java

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 Java smart contracts.
