Microsoft and big business for Canton Network: how does blockchain work?
Continuing with the description, Canton Network wants to create a “network of networks” so that previously isolated systems in the financial markets can interact with the proper governance, privacy, permissions and controls required for highly regulated industries.
This is kind of unlimited synchronization of resources, data and money between applicationsso that financial institutions, like most supporting companies, can experience a more secure environment.
In this scenario, the Canton Network emerges as the blockchain that creates opportunities for financial institutions to offer innovative new products to their customers while improving their efficiency and risk management.
In this regard, Yuval Roozco-founder and CEO of Digital Asset said:
“We are proud to be a founding participant of the Canton Network. For the first time, financial institutions can realize the full benefits of a global blockchain network while operating within the regulatory railings that ensure a safe, sound and fair financial system. This is a significant step forward for the blockchain space. We look forward to helping this founding group of network operators and users build and connect applications to the Canton Network.”
The announcement of the integration of an Ethereum wallet
In March this year, Microsoft had made headlines on the news that it would integrate an Ethereum wallet into the Microsoft Edge browser.
Screenshots showed that the wallet would be custody-free, and there was speculation that the company was testing the new feature. But in reality neither at that time nor now has there been any official confirmation.
Edge is the browser that, since 2015, has replaced the historic Internet Explorer, which was born in 1995. Currently, Edge is used by 4% of users, surpassing Firefox, but remaining among the still little-used browsers.
In contrast, Safari with 19% use and Chrome with almost 66% proclaim themselves as the most used browsers.
