Write smart contracts in JavaScript — 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.

JavaScript, the most used programming language

Created in 1995 (yes, more than 25 years ago!) by Brendan Eich, this programming language was initially named “LiveScript” only to be rebranded as JavaScript (JS) right before its official release. JavaScript is also special in terms of its broad fields of its adoption. This language is used on a widest spectrum of hardware (e.g. ranging from the tiniest microcontrollers through PCs and servers to spacecrafts), and software (e.g. this very webpage you are looking at is also powered by JavaScript.

Write smart contracts in JavaScript

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

Benefits of JavaScript 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 JavaScript knowledge that you may possibly already mastered for several years or even a decade.

It’s time to write your first smart contract in JavaScript

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 JavaScript smart contracts.

Developers and enterprises can build Quantum-resistant smart-contracts, DApps, DeFi solutions, NFTs, tokens, Metaverse on top of the QAN blockchain platform in any programming language.
