Bitcoin Implementation in C#
For Proof of Stake support on the Stratis token the node is using NStratis which is a POS implementation of NBitcoin.
.NET Core is an open source cross platform framework and enables the development of applications and services on Windows, macOS and Linux.

A Modular Approach
A Blockchain is made of many components, from a FullNode that validates blocks to a Simple Wallet that track addresses. The end goal is to develop a set of Nuget packages from which an implementer can cherry pick what he needs.
- Stratis.Bitcoin.Core - The bare minimum to run a pruned node.
- Stratis.Bitcoin.Store - Store and relay blocks to peers.
- Stratis.Bitcoin.MemoryPool - Track pending transaction.
- Stratis.Bitcoin.Wallet - Send and Receive coins
- Stratis.Bitcoin.Miner - POS or POW
Create a Blockchain in a .NET Core style programming
var node = new FullNodeBuilder() .UseNodeSettings(nodeSettings) .UseConsensus() .UseBlockStore() .UseMempool() .AddMining() .AddRPC() .Build(); node.Run();
We plan to add many more features on top of the Stratis Bitcoin blockchain: Sidechains, Private/Permissioned blockchain, Compiled Smart Contracts, NTumbleBit/Breeze wallet and more...
Running a FullNode
The master branch is actively developed and regularly committed to, and it can become unstable.
To compile a stable (production) release use any of the release tags form version 3.0.x.x and upwards.
git clone https://github.com/stratisproject/StratisBitcoinFullNode.git cd StratisBitcoinFullNode\src dotnet build
To run on the Bitcoin network:
cd Stratis.BitcoinD dotnet run
To run on the Stratis network:
cd Stratis.StratisD dotnet run
