Groundbreaking platform brings businesses a regulatory-compliant blockchain technology for seamlessly managing data -- and fiat cash
London & Warsaw, July 28, 2021 - Billon Group, founded in 2015 with the goal of unleashing the transformational capabilities of blockchain in the regulated world, has now launched its Unified Enterprise DLT, the latest blockchain-based, layer one protocol and system that uniquely combines three asset classes -- national currency, data, and documents -- into a single, high-performance distributed ledger (DLT).
The news comes as blockchain adoption is accelerating rapidly, yet often taking divergent paths with innovation around money applications being driven by often hard-to-regulate cryptocurrencies while document management systems seek ways to adapt to evolving privacy and other regulations.
Andrzej Horoszczak, founder and CTO of Billon, explains, “The Unified Enterprise DLT marks a step-change in blockchain technology. With this platform, we have moved past early architectures (which did little more than write a checksum to a hash) to a sophisticated protocol that handles the distinct regulatory needs of processing both national currency transactions and sensitive data. In doing so, for the first time businesses gain a platform that addresses a variety of common but tricky problems that can arise wherever the movement of both data and money are critical to business.”
Significant capabilities include:
The Unified Enterprise DLT addresses additional challenges for businesses, including:
Wojtek Kostrzewa, CEO of Billon, adds, “With this milestone completed, blockchain can address more use cases in the global economy. In the past, companies could only optimize for their portion of global trade, and for either documents or payments, but not both. We built a blockchain that meets the performance and costs needs of any corporation and ecosystem, especially for companies who want the full benefits of blockchain and who want to minimize their power consumption and environmental impact.”
Early clients will migrate to the Unified Enterprise DLT over time. Clients include FIS/Worldpay, the Polish Credit Bureau, Raiffeisen Bank International, ERGO Hestia insurance company, Philip Morris, and new partnerships with Sygnity.
