5 Best Platform For Building Blockchain-Based Applications

Over the last few years, some reputable companies Like Facebook, Amazon, Accenture, IBM, and Samsung have used blockchain solutions to bring a change in security & efficiency. Even LG has entered the space and is providing a “Facial recognition service that is utilizing blockchain & AI to make payments in digital currencies”. Here are a few more stats that will let you understand the potential benefits of utilizing blockchain technology in startups and established enterprises.

As per CB Insights data, blockchain solutions will surpass $16 billion expenditure by 2023. And there is no doubt that blockchain technology is on the rise and is here to stay.

Even the Statista data from 2016 to 2022 is also signalling the increasing popularity of blockchain solutions.

There would be no surprise by the increasing demand for blockchain applications and so the platforms for blockchain-based application development.

5 Best Platforms for Blockchain-Based Application Development

Still today the world is dominated by centralized technologies and is shifting towards decentralizedonese to provide a more secure yet effective solution.

Smart and big companies have understood the potential & scope of blockchain solutions to build trust & authority. And these technological advances let them move ahead of the competition and help them scale their businesses.

For example, A UK-based organization named “On-Line PLC” received increased traffic & higher proposals from investors by just changing its name to “On-Line Blockchain PLC”.

So, you got the idea!!

Now, moving toward our key topic Best Blockchain Platforms that allow one to create a decentralized world of technology.

But before that, I would like to mention some of the key factors that help you decide on the best blockchain platform for your blockchain development.

Key Factors to choosing the best platform for blockchain development

  • Blockchain Networks: Private, Public or Permissioned
  • Supported Languages: Python, Java, C, C++, JavaScript, etc.
  • Consensus Type: Partitioned, Proof of Work, Pluggable, etc.
  • Pricing: Open Source, Free, or Paid

There are more than 25 platforms for building blockchain solutions, but here I have curated the list of the 5 best platforms that help you build blockchain applications and do DLT(Distributed Ledger Technology) development with the most helpful toolkit.

  1. Ethereum:
  • Network Type: Smart Contract and Public
  • Pricing: Ether
  • Language Support: Python, Go, C++
  • Consensus Type: PoW (Proof of Work)

Launched in 2015, Ethereum is the second-largest cryptocurrency platform, behind Bitcoin. It is a decentralized open-source platform featuring smart contract functionality.

It has a native cryptocurrency called Ether(ETH). People globally are using ether to make payments. It facilitates the secure trading of smart contracts and cryptocurrency.​

Ethereum follows a PoW consensus mechanism, which works comparatively slower in speed. Chances are it might completely switch to the Proof of Stake(PoS) consensus algorithm soon.

This platform is most suitable to build cryptocurrency wallets, financial applications, decentralized markets, games & many more applications.

2. Hyperledger Fabric:

  • Network Type: Permissioned
  • Pricing: Open source
  • Language Support: Python
  • Consensus Type: Pluggable Framework

It’s a part of the Linux-based Hyperledger platformFabric platform is a plug and plays the implementation of blockchain technology. It is designed as a foundation to develop high-scaling enterprise blockchain applications with a flexible degree of permissions.

Because of its unique architecture, it facilitates developers to customize individual deployments. Apart from that, its unique network capabilities of scalability, standard programming languages, efficient processing, enhanced privacy and modular structure make it a suitable blockchain platform for businesses.

The platform also offers decentralized hosting and decentralized storage of applications with smart contract capability.

3. EOS 

eos blockchain platform
  • Network Type: Permissioned
  • Pricing: Open source
  • Language Support: C++
  • Consensus Type: Multithreading, Delegated Proof of Stake

Launched in June 2018 as open-source software, EOS is governed by a private company, Block. one. It is mainly designed for the development of dApps (Decentralized Applications).

The EOS platform facilitates smart contract development as well as the decentralized storage of the enterprise solutions that solve the scalability issues found in blockchains such as Ethereum & Bitcoin while eliminating the fees for all the users.

It offers an excellent way to secure and ease the way people exchange, buy, and trade datasets on smart contracts. The platform also has its community forum entitled “EOS forum” where developers discuss their queries related to blockchain technology.

4. OpenChain

openchain blockchain platform
  • Network Type: Private
  • Pricing: Open source, and free
  • Language Support: Javascript
  • Consensus Type: Partitioned

Open chain is a secured open-source distributed ledger technology platform developed by Coinprism. It is the choice of organizations wishing to issue and manage digital assets in a secure and scalable way.

It uses partitioned consensus and is more efficient than platforms that use proof of work. The platform also has the advantage of multi-signature support.

Since there is no miner in the OpenChain, there are no transaction costs and can be validated by the asset owner or through a digital signature, making it more efficient than other platforms.

5. Ripple

ripple blockchain platform
  • Network Type: Permissioned
  • Pricing: Open source, and free
  • Language Support: Python
  • Consensus Type: Probabilistic Voting

The ripple platform built in 2012 is well known for cross-border payment solutions. It is popular among the community of payment providers, banks, and corporates.

It allows global payments through a digital asset known as Ripple or XRP, which has become one of the popular cryptocurrencies like Ether and Bitcoin.

It allows transactions in multiple blockchain assets like BTC/LTC, non-native assets & currencies like USD, Yen, etc.

Features like ‘issuance’ allow users to lock a particular asset and transfer the same and ultimately lowering the transaction cost, speeding up the transaction while maintaining transparency.

So, this is the list of the 5 best blockchain platforms that enterprises and government authorities are using nowadays. There are more platforms like Stellar,

Cordo, NEO, Multichain, Quorum, and Hedera Hashgraph are suitable for various networks and Consensus Types.

Being a leading blockchain development company, Hashstudioz works with the above-mentioned platforms along with the Stellar, Cordo, NEO & other popular blockchain-based platforms to bring you the most efficient solution.

We believe there is no better time to harness the power of Blockchain technology with real-world applications. Let’s discuss your project!!
