Blockchain Programming in C#

Dear developers, and Bitcoin addicts,

I wrote Blockchain Programming in C#, so I hope you too, hobbyist, startup and big corporation will move the block forwards.
I get too much questions and requests for helping everyone to build on the Blockchain. But sadly, I only have 24H per day, no matter how much coffee I drink.

Writing is the most scalable way to share my knowledge. And coherently with such a goal my work is under CC (ASA 3U), so you are free to share. (and encouraged to do so)

Code examples

The book contains multiple example about how to use NBitcoin. Moreover, this website is itself open source, so you can take a look and play with it by yourself.

Hall of the Makers

As you will read the book, you will have some challenges.

For the first challenge, you need to send me at least 0.004 BTC on 1KF8kUVHK42XzgcmJF4Lxz4wcL5WDL97PB with some kind words in the...

It seems that what I really want to learn is how to create software which makes use of a distributed hash table.


I want to learn about coding my own blockchain based software using the C# programming language. Do books exist yet which I could buy to learn about blockchain programming?

The blockchain idea/technology is absolutely unbelievably amazing, and I want to learn how to create blockchain based software.

Please understand, that I am not asking about a book which helps me interact with the bitcoin blockchain. I want to know how to create distributed software using blockchain type technology.

Hats off to Satoshi Nakamoto for giving the world the blockchain...

Aspiring developers are looking at Bitcoin in order to take their coding skills to the next level. Even though there are plenty of hints, tips and tricks to be found on the internet, an actual “coder’s manual” is not as easy to find as one might want. That is about to change however, as the first part of “Blockchain Programming in C#” has been made available for free.

Nicolas Dorier is the author and creator of “Blockchain Programming in C#”. The reason for making this series of books available to the public for free, is because Nicolas strongly believes that one of the way to make Bitcoin successful is to teach developers how to program it themselves. But how do you get started in the world of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency?

A lot of (aspiring) developers wil rely on web API calls in order to create a new Bitcoin tool, service or platform. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but these API’s have so much underlying technology which isn’t used to its...

When you receive any goods from someone, what made you determine its originality? How can you trust, if the goods you received are not tampered with? One of the ways is to keep track of all the transactions related to these goods in a ledger system. From the beginning of the human era, people recorded all the transactions of their day to day life. People used ledgers and wrote down the transactions.

Problem statement

As we evolved into the digital age, most of our transactions were recorded in the digital format. Recording this transaction is not easy but it's also complex. Mainly it is complex because it’s misinterpreted easily and it also becomes a target for vulnerabilities.

Example 1

Importing mobile phones

Suppose you order mobile phones from other countries. The journey of those mobile phone involves legal, regulatory, manufacturing and custom practices, until it reaches your repository. Here, many people are...

Blockchain technology is a digital form of structuring data that enables the sharing of a digital ledger across computer networks without the need for a central authority, such as a central bank in the banking industry. Blockchain is the underlying technological foundation of alternative digital currencies such as Bitcoin, and dozens of leading financial firms, including The Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) and JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM), are investing heavily in developing the technology. For people who want to learn more about blockchain technology and its applications, here are three of the best books on the subject.

Blockchain Revolution by Don and Alex Tapscott

The father and son team of Don and Alex Tapscott have written "Blockchain Revolution," to explain how the fully open, global platform of blockchain technology will expand and transform what we can do online, the way we do it, and who can participate. According to the Tapscotts, blockchain...

Stratis Announces Release of the nStratis Development Framework

We are thrilled to announce that today Stratis launches the much anticipated nStratis Development Framework (SDF) – enabling blockchain development in C# and .NET.

SDF marks a major milestone accomplished by the Stratis development team that will allow support for accelerated development of powerful, open source, cross-platform blockchain applications on Microsoft’s .net framework. Following a successful crowdfund earlier this year, Stratis has gone from strength to strength, releasing its Blockchain Development Framework well ahead of an original target date in early 2017.

We are inviting developers to start coding and testing the capabilities of our open source SDF that can be found at:

The contributions of Nicolas Dorier to NBitcoin, have been instrumental in bringing the SDF to life and we would like to take a moment to thank him for...

WARNING !!! The Scanner is now Obsolete in NBitcoin making the part "A simple and extensible design for Blockchain Scanning" obsolete


The previous article I wrote about bitcoin (Introduction article and one about stealth address and two factor), I did not invent anything special, I just wanted to explain in simpler term how things work.

On the other hand, this article propose a simple and scalable design to scan a blockchain, that work for full Bitcoin node and (soon) SPV.
I entirely made up this design, and it is experimental for now, and expect some bugs lurking around despite the 100+ unit tests I wrote. I expect you will use it and give me feedback about it.

Being experimental, the code of this article might have changed since I wrote it. But the general principle stays the same.

For people that knows how bitcoin works, you can skip the “Bitcoin Basics” part.
