Enterprise blockchain applications are slowly but surely making their way to public networks, especially as new upgrades and features are being implemented into the Ethereum ecosystem. While Eth2 promises to bring scalability, security and capacity across the Ethereum network to advance enterprise use cases, other techniques are being developed to help enterprises properly leverage the Ethereum network.
For example, the Baseline Protocol is a set of techniques using advances in peer-to-peer messaging, zero-knowledge cryptography and blockchain to coordinate complex and confidential workflows between enterprises. While the Baseline Protocol can be leveraged with any blockchain network, it operates well alongside the Ethereum mainnet, which serves as a common frame of reference for traditional systems of record.
In August of this year, bottling giant Coke One North America announced that it would use the Baseline Protocol to synchronize its supply chain data. Since then, other proofs-of-concept have been underway by companies such as SAP, Microsoft Dynamic, Google Sheets and Salesforce.
New features are continually being added to Baseline Protocol to ensure its functionality, and now the Baseline Protocol has published a new key component called the “Commitment Manager,” which is focused on bringing blockchain interoperability to Ethereum clients — that is, nodes that are able to parse and verify the blockchain.
Sam Stokes, software architect at ConsenSys, the blockchain development software company behind Baseline Protocol, told Cointelegraph that the newly released commitment manager is a new microservice that would enable developers to switch…
