Partners are growing their businesses by building and operating distributed ledger applications and offering professional services engagements on Corda. The platform provides a frictionless environment for commercial transactions and a unique approach to data privacy and interoperability.
In addition to its Corda partners, R3 also counts over 100 banks, insurance companies, financial institutions, regulators, trade associations and technology companies as members. Collaboration is the cornerstone of R3’s strategy to develop a DLT platform that can be used by businesses operating in financial markets across the world.
Corda is an open source, blockchain-inspired DLT platform that removes costly friction in business transactions by enabling institutions to transact directly using smart contracts, while ensuring the highest levels of privacy and security. It is the outcome of over two years of intense research and development by R3 and its 100+ members.
