About Blockcore

Open source .NET Bitcoin based blockchain node in C#

Do you want to build your own blockchain based upon Blockcore? Then check out our blockcore-node repository, which is the best starting point for most custom blockchains.


Bitcoin Implementation in C# and .NET 6

What is Blockcore?

  • Blockcore is a platform to build Layer 1 consensus networks based on the Bitcoin protocol, built on the .NET Core framework and written entirely in C#.
  • Blockcore aims to maintain an alternative C# Bitcoin implementation, based on the NBitcoin & Stratis projects.
  • Blockcore is neither a coin or a for profit business.

Why Blockcore?

  • We see a need within the crypto ecosystem for development of the C# full node technology.
  • Stratis has provided an excellent starting point but their focus is enterprise and business. We feel strongly that there is significant value focusing on open & public blockchains, using open source software.

Blockcore objectives

  • Continue development of the C# Stratis fullnode.
  • Maintain the C# Bitcoin fullnode.
  • Support projects and teams that use the underlying technology.
  • Extend the technology by building developer and user tools
  • Provide a forum for developers and teams to collaborate and improve on the technology.
  • Build relationships with potential sponsors & partners to help boost the pace of development.

Blockcore principles

  • We help each other, and all projects that utilise the underlying technology.
  • We encourage contribution to the Blockcore open source software.
  • We aim to make it easier for everyone to contribute to the ecosystem.
  • We encourage projects to adopt Blockcore technology as we believe every project has something to offer and help make the technology stronger.
