How companies can overcome the ‘trust problem’ when using blockchain

  • While many enterprises are excited by blockchains ability to streamline business processes that involve multiple parties, they dont want sensitive data used in transactions with one party to be exposed to other, uninvolved parties.
  • Other approaches to confidentiality in blockchain networks are partial ledger visibility and state channels.
  • In the context of a business process, like one executed on a blockchain, TEEs are like an incorruptible third-party, whose actions are agreed upon in advance by all the network participants.
  • Last August, we announced the Microsoft Coco Framework for Blockchain, an open-source technology that can give blockchain networks confidentiality and performance, while reducing complexity and limitations.
  • As a result, we expect a growth in production blockchain systems launched this year, and with advances in blockchain confidentiality and performance technologies, to spread into more business processes.
