Building The Internet Of Trust Selecting The Right Permissioned Blockchain For Your Organization

If there is already a market and a trusted intermediary, there isn’t as much to be gained by creating a network that looks exactly the same but with replacing the intermediary, as the intermediary often does more than just pass data. However, there isn’t a clear intermediary in all circumstances that would benefit from one. These circumstances tend to include peer to peer transactions where all the participants do not 100% trust each other, for instance, in trade finance.

We live in a time in which technology is exponentially growing and beginning to play a role in our economy. Cryptocurrency is becoming more and more popular yet some are skeptical about the overall security of money you can’t physically see or hold.
