Commerceblock (CBT) is an infrastructure company that will empower traditional asset markets to facilitate the distribution, exchange and storage of assets through the use of the CommerceBlock public blockchain and its smart contracts. Businesses will be able to deploy federated side-chains, through the use of the CommerceBlock toolchain, which would aid them in managing their process flows whilst keeping in line with contractual commitments and their inherent deliverable timelines. As data security and privacy are of paramount importance, the Commerceblock protocols are built using open source and peer reviewed cryptographic primitives. With their libraries utilising amongst others, zero knowledge and homomorphism protocols, businesses are able to manage their valuable data, including trade and customer fund details. As the need for intermediaries is removed, those unfamiliar with the intricacies of smart contracts now have direct access to these protocols, thus bridging the gap between public blockchains and federated sidechains.
