The Corda Platform

Blockchain for every business in every industry

In 2016 we built Corda, our open source blockchain platform. Corda removes costly friction in business transactions by enabling institutions to transact directly using smart contracts, while ensuring the highest levels of privacy and security. From its inception, Corda was built specifically for business.

Because Corda was designed for production from the very start, companies with a relatively simple IT structure and network can go live on it. We also encourage our thriving developer community to contribute to, consume, and build on Corda open source.

Corda Enterprise is a commercial distribution of Corda open source designed specifically to meet the demands of modern day businesses. Harnessing the unique features of our core offering—Corda Enterprise is the optimal choice for organizations with additional business requirements such as deployment inside corporate firewalls, 24/7 support, predictable release schedules, dedicated product management, and support for industry-standard enterprise databases.

Corda's core capabilities include:

Apps for every industry

Corda is the gateway to a vibrant network of blockchain applications for finance and commerce, known as CorDapps, that solve complex, real world problems.

Corda Enterprise: fine-tuned for modern-day business

Corda Enterprise is fully interoperable with Corda open source, meaning companies using either can trade with each other, and that one organization can run both platforms seamlessly across different divisions. It is the world’s only open source platform that is 100% compatible with the enterprise version.

Now offering the choice between enterprise and open source, businesses can now select a version of Corda that fits their unique needs – regardless of their industry, size, and stage of development.

Corda Network: Enabling businesses to transact directly, seamlessly and securely.

One of Corda’s defining features is Corda Network—an underlying network which provides a common layer of identity and consensus across business networks. Corda Network allows data and digitized assets to move without friction on an open network protected by Corda’s privacy model. This enables businesses to transact seamlessly not only across their own business lines, but also with their partners—allowing applications to be deployed rapidly, securely, and economically.

Corda Network is a governed by a not for profit Foundation, set up and domiciled in Holland. Corda Network participants are eligible to vote and stand for the Foundation’s Board and make key decisions around it— including network standards and parameters, policies, as well as membership for Corda Network.
