Major Blockchain Protocols¶
This page of this documentation is here just to provide you with a gist of various major protocols and help you give a rough idea around them. So you can choose the one which suits your usecase well.
Hyperledger Sawtooth is an enterprise blockchain platform for building distributed ledger applications and networks. The design philosophy targets keeping ledgers distributed and making smart contracts safe, particularly for enterprise use. Ref.
Hyperledger Fabric is an open source enterprise-grade permissioned distributed ledger technology (DLT) platform, designed for use in enterprise contexts, that delivers some key differentiating capabilities over other popular distributed ledger or blockchain platforms. Ref.
Ethereum is an open-source, blockchain based distributed computing platform which involves smart contract (business logic coded script) functionality. Ether is a currency used for transactions between accounts and also used to compensate participating mining nodes for computations performed. Ref.
Corda is an open source blockchain project, designed for businesses. Only Corda allows you to build interoperable blockchain networks that transact in strict privacy. Corda’s smart contract technology allows businesses to transact directly, with value. Ref.
