A quick guide to getting started with developing on Harmony blockchain.
Harmony is a powerful blockchain that is EVM compatible with sharding and staking features. Developing on Harmony should feel very familiar for Ethereum developers, as Harmony is fully Ethereum compatible and inherits almost all the tools and libraries from Ethereum, like truffle, remix, web3js, etc.
The simplest way to interact with Harmony blockchain is via JSON RPCs.
To really explore the full potential of Harmony blockchain, creating a wallet is the next step.
Harmony uses bech32 address format with
one1prefix, however Ethereum style hex address can also be used. For example:
one1pdv9lrdwl0rg5vglh4xtyrv3wjk3wsqket7zxybech32 address is equivalent to
0x0B585F8DaEfBC68a311FbD4cB20d9174aD174016hex address. Quick way to convert between formats is using explorer: https://explorer.harmony.one/#/address/one1pdv9lrdwl0rg5vglh4xtyrv3wjk3wsqket7zxy, at the top you will find "Address Format" ONE | ETH options.
