Not all blockchains are the same — in this episode of the Fluree Video Podcast we sit down with Brian Platz and chat about what makes a network “Permissioned” or “Permissionless.”

Any company looking to learn more about blockchain technology will quickly find that there are different network deployments — Permissioned (where the network is closed to invite-only nodes) and Permissionless (where the network access and participation are publicly available). Which network type makes sense for your use case?

In this episode of the Fluree Video Podcast, Brian Platz (Co-CEO and Co-Founder @ Fluree) takes us through the key differences between permissioned and permissionless blockchain. Key tradeoffs include time, money, privacy, and efficiency. Key factors to consider are data relevancy and data security.
