Abstract

Blockchain, as originally designed by Satoshi Nakamoto, is perfect for censorship-resistant cash transfers – and completely unsuitable for enterprise use. In this talk, we'll discuss Corda, an open-source enterprise blockchain backed by a consortium of over 100 companies that was the fastest-growing blockchain by usage in 2018 according to Gartner. We'll look at how Corda's success depends on bold choices past (Kotlin, JVMs, pluggable consensus...), present (the non-profit Corda Foundation...) and future (interoperability between blockchains).
