One of the most appealing aspects of blockchain for business is the degree of data immutability and decentralization it offers. Blockchain shifts trust from central authorities to a decentralized consensus among the network participants on a shared ledger, increasing trust and security. A shared ledger means that data on the blockchain is shared with each network participant and everyone has a complete copy. In addition, all transactions are performed locally on each node, so transaction payload is also shared with every participant in the network.

With enterprise use cases, privacy is of the utmost concern. For most industries, in particular…


The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) launched Impactio, a platform that enables funding for projects at scale using blockchain, to help solve the world’s most pressing environmental and social issues. Impactio runs on Kaleido and is designed to accelerate the closing of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals funding gap. The new platform brings together practitioners, experts, donors and investors to make high-impact projects come to fruition, matching social and environmental impact projects with the support and potential funding they need to be a success. …


In a blockchain project, the shared ledger is the beating heart of the solution. Data replicated automatically to all participants can never be changed or deleted. But what about the data that cannot be shared with everyone? Most enterprises are held to strict security and regulatory data controls; your data must be safeguarded both for competitive reasons and due to the sensitive nature of the content. Sharing that data with everyone might not be desirable, or even possible. Some data must be deleted when no longer required.

It’s critical that you be able to control your data, where it’s stored…

A Gateway to Enterprise Blockchain Adoption

Blog written by Jonathan Rouach, QEDIT Co-founder and CEO

The transparent nature of blockchains is often presented as a virtue of Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) — it allows all participants to independently verify that shared data and transactional details on a shared ledger are valid. In other words, transparency keeps everyone honest.

While this may be true, transparency on an enterprise blockchain used by competitors within the same ecosystem can be highly problematic. In certain collaborative scenarios, companies must be able to keep their private accounting records and transactional history off-chain for business, legal or compliance reasons.

Lack of privacy on blockchains is…


This blog describes our new marketplace offering, the Zero Knowledge Token Transfer Service. The new service leverages Zero Knowledge Proofs to allow users to transfer ERC20 tokens confidentially and anonymously.

The underlying zero knowledge proof system is Σ-Bullets, proposed by Benedikt Bünz etc. in the paper Zether. The details about Σ-Bullets is outside the scope of this post, but they essentially allow Bulletproofs to work with Sigma protocols. Zether enables confidential token transfer between parties and allows for on chain verification of these transfers. …


Enterprise blockchains are diverse, and can be built using a number of different technologies and protocols. Consensus algorithms are an example of this: depending on the objectives, member requirements or technology mandates, different consensus algorithms can be used to achieve collective agreement across member nodes on the state of a transaction.

Many enterprise consortiums use IBFT, a great solution for reaching consensus in an untrusted environment. This protocol relies on a 3-phase voting protocol where the number of messages exchanged to achieve consensus grows exponentially as the validator set grows. …


Enterprise blockchain promises to digitally disrupt the business-to-business (B2B) and back office processes of virtually every industry by reshaping how organizations transact and collaborate. Industry analyst Gartner has estimated that blockchain could unlock over three trillion dollars in business value over the next decade from today’s inefficient business processes. While organizations realize benefits from blockchain immediately in the form of efficiencies and cost savings, even greater value is realized as the solution is scaled and more members join in. This is sometimes referred to as the “network effect”.

Research by McKinsey shows that an emerging set of digital ecosystems could…
