Build fast, with confidence.

Corda’s development framework enables the building of future-proof apps quickly in financial services and other regulated markets.

Why choose Corda?

While regulated companies may start on public blockchains, they soon realize when they get to production, they require capabilities native to Corda such as privacy, security, scalability and ease-of-integration with existing systems. That’s why we are also exploring interoperability with assets that originate on a non-Corda network.

Public Blockchain

Validates transactions with the public network thus broadcasting sensitive information to all participants.


By design Corda shares data only between the counterparties of a transaction. Even the communication protocol itself is invisible to the other members on the network.

Public Blockchain

Requires low level code or specialized languages with custom tooling and sparse libraries.


Smart contracts are legally bound and written in any JVM compatible language, taking advantage of the vast ecosystem of tooling and libraries.

Public Blockchain

Not architected with industry standards or regulations in mind and today new digital assets such as crypto cannot be traded by institutional investors.

Regulatory Compliance

Corda capabilities are grounded in legal constructs and compatible with existing and emerging standards and regulations.

Public Blockchain

Scalability and sustainability are sacrificed for network level consensus — a resource-intensive mechanism to ensure all parties are in sync. Approximate energy or joules consumed per Ethereum transaction: 17,222,222.

Scalability & Sustainability

P2P architecture enables high levels of network scalability and throughput. Transactions don’t need to be sequential, increasing the overall efficiency of the system. Approximate energy or joules consumed per transaction: 24.6.

Public Blockchain

Uses consensus models that settle probabilistically and can ultimately be walked back.


Consensus model guarantees that assets have deterministic settlement finality because it is based on validation and uniqueness.

Public Blockchain

Completely open so anyone can join and participate as an anonymous actor on the network raising concerns about security.


In order to participate in a CorDapp each entity must be granted access to do so and tied to a legal entity.

A powerful and flexible development model

Corda’s architecture is purpose-built for high value transactions in regulated markets. Build permissioned applications with a flexible membership model and powerful development toolkits.
