Auditability, transparency, and security are essential values for a successful blockchain platform. Typically, the key considerations for enterprises when choosing a platform are the platform’s flexibility and scalability. While these factors are important, properly authenticating and validating the participating parties—whether they be part of the consensus protocol, maintaining a ledger, or just acting as a participant—is critical to the trustworthiness of any distributed ledger.
