Development Tools

Smart Contracts

Smart contracts development with BNB Sidechain enables you to build your smart contracts for any use, including cryptocurrency exchanges, smart contract-based dApps, Decentralized Finance, and more. Smart contracts are programming logic that are executed automatically when a certain condition(s) are met. In BNB Sidechain, smart contracts can be written in Solidity programming language. Please refer to the official documentation of Solidity for any queries.


Multiple IDEs and libraries can be used for developing and deploying smart contracts.
