Hyperledger recently announced the much-anticipated release of its latest project: Avalon. Avalon represents a trusted computing framework and, by extension, a leap forward in addressing the key blockchain issues of scalability and confidentiality. Before Avalon, users often addressed these issues by conducting the relevant transactions off-chain. That choice represented a trade-off where users sacrificed transparency which is gained through on-chain transaction for off-chain transactional speed and security.
When you put a new network into production, you need to start actively monitoring your blockchain and auditing it. Here are five important steps you should take:
When blockchains and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) first appeared, one of their biggest appeals was that they allowed anyone to verify and validate ledger data. While that’s still a big appeal, DLTs are increasingly being implemented with access restrictions, which allows them to operate much more efficiently. For some use cases, adding access control would be a deal-breaker, but for others, it can be a big plus.
Both Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric are Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) frameworks built on the blockchain concept. They differ in several important ways, however. Ethereum was designed as a public blockchain that would enable distributed computing applications; Hyperledger Fabric is a permissioned private blockchain designed for use among large enterprises and business groups. Here are their five most important differences:
BlocWatch, the leading enterprise blockchain monitoring, analytics, and security company, announces the closing of a $5.5 million funding round. The funds will be deployed to help BlocWatch expand its blockchain management platform used for enterprise implementations of Hyperledger Fabric, Ethereum, and Corda.
