Leaders of four different blockchain and distributed ledger projects believe they are collectively working on what could end up being an interoperable network of services.
Speaking onstage at CoinDesk’s Consensus 2017 conference in New York, ethereum co-founder Joe Lubin, bitcoin scientist Adam Back, Hyperledger executive director Brian Behlendorf and Richard Gendal Brown of distributed ledger consortium R3 took turns talking about the future of their industry.
While philosophies differed regarding public and private blockchains, and methods of development, a consensus was largely formed that, eventually, their technologies will probably directly interact in the future.
Lubin, who is also the co-founder of ethereum development firm ConsenSys, told the audience:
“All of these individuals on stage with us are all building technologies with which we would someday like to interoperate.”
