Part 1: Current State of Enterprise Blockchain Adoption

In this blog post, I mainly highlight the findings from the “2019 Cambridge 2nd Global Enterprise Blockchain Benchmarking Study.” The report shows that Hyperledger suite (with Fabric as the flagship protocol) is the most frequently supported protocol framework by integrators and software development platforms (55%), followed by Corda (15%), MultiChain (10%), Quorum (6%), and Steller (3%), and others (11%). The selection criteria of core protocol framework included: vendor maturity (52%), performance and scalability (44%), use case fit (24%), privacy and confidentiality (24%), security (20%), unique features (16%), interoperability and extensibility (16%), cost factors (12%), open-source (8%), and other (8%). …
