Mike Hearn, Lead Platform Engineer at R3, comments: “By partnering with Intel we will be able to give Corda users more class-leading features as we continue to set the standard in DLT data privacy. Corda addresses multiple problems identified by our eighty-plus members across the globe, but transaction privacy is usually the top issue blocking real-world deployment.
