Why use a private blockchain?

Our private blockchain can also be used effectively as a “side-chain” to a public blockchain to speed up transaction processes and create new marketplaces for data.

What is an example of a private blockchain use case?

Solution: Kadena completed a pilot proof of concept project for a large healthcare consortium that demonstrated how blockchain technology eliminates the duplication of effort in collecting and verifying provider data used for directory information. Kadena’s enterprise blockchain solution showed how providers can share data and buy and sell records using a blockchain-powered marketplace which provides security at scale and speed. This transforms the burden of maintaining provider data from a cost center into an enterprise business asset.

What makes Kadena’s Private Blockchain different from other private blockchains?

As part of the Kadena hybrid blockchain ecosystem running the smart contract language Pact and with integration to our public blockchain, Kadena’s private blockchain becomes even more powerful. Here are a few of the additional features and benefits that only Kadena can provide to the private blockchain market:

  • Automatic bug detection through formal verification
  • Human-readable code that is accessible to programmers and executives alike
  • Flexibility to upgrade smart contract terms to reflect changing business needs
  • Easy integration to existing enterprise databases with a native API
  • Advanced security options like key rotation and pluggable encryption allow you to dial up security to meet your specs

Kadena’s heritage in JP Morgan and the SEC gives us profound insight into the strict requirements and business workflows that secure $100B order books. We have designed our tools to satisfy these existing needs, and thought ahead to solve the challenges that will face the market.
