Blockchain: Distributed Consensus Protocols


Dom Steil article on Distributed Consensus Protocols provides an overview of a few of the implements available.

Asset creation built from the Bitcoin blockchain = Sidechains

Asset creation built off the Bitcoin blockchain = Counterparty

Asset ledger creation built on distributed nodes = Hyperledger

Application and smart contract creation = Ethereum (AWS mining and “Create your own Crypto-Currency”)

Application framework built on top of Ethereum = Eris. Ethereum has gained further press recently around Adept and Provenance.

One would assume that the investment banking arena is most interested in Hyperledger, MultiChain and Ethereum from an asset trading and post trade perspective – due to Confidential Transactions.  Curious also as to what banks are looking at t0 (the trade is the settlement)
