Blockchain software languages and blockchain developers

blockchain software

Building a blockchain project may seem like you only need blockchain developers. While it is true that you need blockchain developers for your project it will also need other infrastructure such as a website, design, mobile applications, email, hosting, backup, databases, api’s, security etc.

Currently the market conditions around finding blockchain developers are such that there are not enough blockchain developers to support the demand and this is making hiring full time blockchain developers unaffordable for many projects.

One option could be to build all the infrastructure for the project and have the blockchain specific components outsourced and accessed through an API or have the team work with your developers to help put the code together.

What most ICO projects need is DAPPS

DAPPS is an acronym for: Dated, Achievable, Personal, Positive and Specific. The idea around a Dapps network is that there is no central server and rather a program that lives on top of the network.

An ICO smart tokens is a Dapp and most ICO’s are built on top of Ethereum (ETH). Ethereum has its own programming language which is called Solidity which allows developers to write smart contracts. Inside this language is compiler which is built in javascript.

Core Blockchain Developer Languages

Each blockchain core has been built in different languages for example:

  • BitCoin Core: C++ and Java
  • Ethereum: Go (Multiple ports that support other languages but GO is the most advanced)

Cryptography BlockChain development

The core of blockchain technology is cryptography which is the link between the list of records called ‘blocks’ hence the name blockchain. Much of the contentious forking of coins comes from the way that the cryptography is being changed and whether or not the ‘coins’ owners are happy to move to the new system or not.
