Where Should You Develop Your Blockchain App?

As a blockchain developer, one of the most important decisions you’ll make is which ecosystem to build in. Do you join the largest community of Web3 developers in Ethereum? Do you take advantage of Solana’s fast transactions? Do you build on Bitcoin, the most secure and battle-tested blockchain? Or do you build somewhere else altogether?

Which smart contract platform you choose to build on has ramifications for:

The security of your application

The community of developers and users you surround yourself with

The resources available to your team, from tooling to funding

The programming language you can use for smart contract development

Where to develop a blockchain application is a hard question without an easy answer. The good news is we’re here to help.

We created A Developer’s Guide to Web3 Ecosystems in 2022 to give you a headstart on the research process. We take a look at consensus mechanisms, programming languages, blockchain tools, and more to help you identify the right web3 development environment for your needs.
