Corda is the gateway to a network of fully interoperable applications for finance and commerce, known as CorDapps.




CorDapps solve complex, real world problems for our partners and their clients.

All CorDapps run across a common layer of identity, consensus and governance, making them fully interoperable. Once connected to Corda, users are able to transact with multiple different groups of trading partners, for different purposes and under different legal frameworks, all at the same time and with guaranteed privacy.

As Corda runs on the Java Virtual Machine, developers can easily build CorDapps that make use of the vast array of libraries and third-party code that exists for the Java platform.
