Chain Core Developer Edition is the product of a deep, multi-year effort between Chain and leading financial firms to build Blockchain architecture that maps to the use cases of the financial industry. Chain Core Enterprise Edition, the company’s production platform, is already being leveraged to launch innovative products by market leaders across the payments, banking, capital markets, and insurance industries.
“We are delighted to be one of the operators of the Chain test environment,” said Professor Andrew Miller, an Associate Director of IC3 and Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. “We have collaborated with Chain on protocol design and encourage their approach to helping developers build secure Blockchain applications.”
Chain Core Developer Edition comes with a Java SDK, code samples and getting started guides, as well as installers and a dashboard interface for Windows, Mac, and Linux. In addition, Chain today published the complete technical specification of the Chain Protocol (formerly known as the Chain Open Standard) as well as a summary whitepaper. The Chain Protocol is the underlying cryptographic protocol, authored and maintained by Chain, that defines the data model, validation rules, and consensus mechanism implemented in Chain Core.
