Support Engineer at R3CEV
London, GB

R3

For the past three years R3 has been working in partnership with over 100 banks and various other institutions to build a Distributed Ledger platform called Corda.

 

Corda was developed to specifically address shortcomings identified in other blockchain and distributed ledger platforms, shortcomings which have, so far, prevented wholesale adoption of distributed ledger technology by various financially regulated institutions such as banks, exchanges and hedge funds.

 

In September 2017, version 1.0 was released and institutions all over the world have chosen Corda to begin implementing their DLT-based services. In addition to the platform, R3 are going live in January with a global enterprise network allowing multiple Corda-based services to connect and transact with each other.

 

R3 are partnered in technology with firms such as Microsoft, HP, Intel and Accenture.
