The R3 Story

Industry-wide collaboration is in our DNA

R3 is an enterprise blockchain software firm working with a broad ecosystem of more than 300 members and partners across multiple industries from both the private and public sectors to develop on Corda, our open-source blockchain platform, and Corda Enterprise, a commercial version for enterprise usage.

Our global team of over 190 professionals in 13 countries is supported by over 2,000 technology, financial, and legal experts drawn from our global member base.

Our Corda platform is already being used in industries from financial services to healthcare, shipping, insurance and more. It records, manages, executes institutions’ financial agreements in perfect synchrony with their peers, creating a world of frictionless commerce.

Fine-tuned for the enterprise

Traditional permission-less blockchain platforms-in which all data is shared with all parties-have issues around privacy, scalability, and interoperability that render them largely unsuited for global businesses. At R3, we rethought the blockchain concept from top to bottom and in 2016 we launched Corda, our open source blockchain platform. In 2018, we introduced Corda Enterprise-a commercial version of Corda specifically optimized to meet the demands of modern day businesses.

Blockchain for every business in every industry

The Corda platform was developed in close collaboration with a vast network of financial institutions, regulators, trade associations, professional services firms and technology companies to leverage the power of blockchain to address their specific business challenges. As Corda was designed to meet the highest standards of one of the most complex and highly regulated industries in the world, it can be applied seamlessly to all other areas of business.

Now offering the choice between Corda Enterprise and Corda open source, R3’s Corda platform is the only technology platform that truly delivers on the promise of blockchain for business.
