Accenture presented a “contextual compatibility” for 4 platforms — Hyperledger, Corda, Digital Asset and Quorum

Consulting giant Accenture announced the creation of the “node consistency”, allowing the interaction of users with the four largest blockchain platform designed for corporate customers.

Representatives of the company reassured the business community during the annual competition Sibos in Australia: maybe they don’t have to painfully choose between different blockchains based on which platform more popular among their business partners and customers.

While the developers have managed to achieve compatibility four platforms: Hyperledger Fabric, Corda, Quorum and Digital Asset.

As explained by the head of the blockchain-direction Accenture David Street, work is progressing gradually — first provided the work Fabric and Quorum, and then designed the architecture was adapted to the specificity of the Digital Asset and Corda.

Noda compatibility allows the exchange of information between two or more blockchain platforms, taking into account the standards agreed by both platforms agreed to work together. “We built the first prototype node for interaction between the Fabric and Quorum and was able to achieve a result, — he explained. Now we built another one, uniting and DA Corda. They both use the same mechanism and is able to interact with any of the block chain of these four.”

At Accenture believe that their solution will be useful to several sectors, to build an ecosystem around a platform, interacting with other industries. But the situation is complicated not only by different profile and different tasks corporate blockchains — their performance is also different.

However, the Trit, which is a member of the Supervisory boards of Ethereum, and Hyperledger Enterprise Alliance, says that the new design takes into account the difference in time required to achieve consensus platforms parties. The transaction is relevant to both platforms, provides a kind of standby mode for faster of them. Trit also argues that strict rules of information exchange Corda may be compatible with platforms, more liberal in this regard.

Transactions in test mode take a lot of time because there is only one node compatibility, but with the addition of a new node, the processing speed will increase. It is also possible a solution that does not require a separate node compatibility, all can be laid at the level of smart-contracts, which can use any node in the network, he added.

Note that a variety of blockchains designed for the corporate sector, causing a variety of views on how further events will develop in this area. Thus, representatives Corda has previously noted that the world of corporate blockchain has its own specifics, and competition in it can not last forever. In contrast to the blockchain at all, but rather a zero-sum game. And in the end the market will remain a few platforms, of course, Corda, Hyperledger and some of the projects on the basis of the Ethereum blockchain.

At the same time, the participants of the markets, or at least some of them, I doubt that exists or will in the near future is a universal blockchain that corresponds to their needs, participating in different projects. For example, German Commerzbank in five.
