JPMorgan’s DLT Spin-off Completes Industry’s First Hybrid Blockchain

JP Morgan’s blockchain spin-off Kadena has fully launched its public blockchain on January 15, making it the ‘Industry’s First Hybrid Blockchain Platform’. Kadena is a public chain primarily built for smart contracts. The features include full transactions and the ability to write smart contracts.

This public chain aims to be scalable and offer proof-of-work alternatives to secure the network as a whole. It is the first sharded (sharding) Proof-of-Work Layer 1 network to offer in the market.

“Despite blockchain having immense potential, our experience building JP Morgan’s first blockchain showed us its limitations. Launching a fully functional hybrid blockchain which seamlessly integrates a public chain with a private network is a significant step forward in reimagining what applications can do on-chain.”

This new ecosystem also consists of a wallet known as Chainweaver. That wallet is now integrated with the Cosmos Network, allowing for interoperability between different distributed ledger systems.

Additionally, Kadena’s hybrid blockchain supports interoperability using Pact, the firm’s open-source smart contract programing language. Reportedly, this hybrid blockchain can process 750 transactions per second, while Bitcoin and Ether are capable of processing only 7 and 15 transactions per second, respectively.

As per a report, all of the services should be fully up and running by late March 2020.
