What is Cordite?

Cordite provides decentralised economic and governance services including:

  • decentralised stores and transfers of value allowing new financial instruments to be created inside the existing regulatory framework. eg. tokens, crypto-coins, digital cash, virtual currency, distributed fees, micro-billing
  • decentralised forms of governance allowing new digital autonomous organisations to be created using existing legal entities eg. digital mutual societies or digital joint stock companies
  • decentralised consensus in order to remove the need for a central operator, owner or authority. Allowing Cordite to be more resilient, cheaper, agile and private than incumbent market infrastructure

Cordite is open source, regulatory friendly, enterprise ready and finance grade.

Cordite is built on Corda, a finance grade distributed ledger technology, meeting the highest standards of the banking industry, yet it is applicable to any commercial scenario. The outcome of over two years of intense research and development by over 80 of the world’s largest financial institutions.
