Kaleido was built to accelerate the implementation of blockchain by taking the technology hurdles off the table. Cerveny highlights that most CIOs today face a multitude of problems in the journey from blockchain exploration to real production business networks. Owing to distributed networks, consensus, smart contracts, neoteric protocols, and heavy cryptography which are embedded within the blockchain infrastructure, it is a steep uphill climb for enterprises where the requisite skills are in short supply. Then, to marry these new technologies with their legacy backend production systems presents a whole new set of challenges.
What differentiates Kaleido from other blockchain solution providers is the fact that it takes the prerequisite of deep blockchain knowledge out of users’ hands and provides services that are not only easy to use but also extremely innovative. Kaleido offers all the benefits of the underlying technology while delivering the necessary levels of security, performance, and cloud scale that enterprises and highly regulated industries require. The first enterprise blockchain SaaS platform to feature Ethereum, an open source blockchain-based protocol, Kaleido uniquely allows clients to tie their private chains to the Ethereum mainnet to improve immutability and reduce the potential for collusion.
Lopez goes on to talk about Kaleido’s role in Project i2i which seeks to provided financial access to over 35 million unbanked Filipinos across the rural communities of the Philippines. Kaleido is also powering Komgo, a new commodities trade finance consortium which is comprised of some of the largest banks and commercial institutions in the world. As the foremost blockchain platform, Kaleido is also driving an impact in other industries such as travel, healthcare, supply chain and more, tackling problems like reservation systems, self-sovereign genomics, land registry, and intellectual property rights.
Kaleido has quickly established a global presence and is serving up hundreds of new blockchain networks every month. The company is set to announce an expanded portfolio of new features and capabilities including new priced enterprise plans for production-grade deployments. With over a thousand blockchain networks running on the Kaleido platform across the globe, Lopez reveals that Kaleido has quickly become the enterprise blockchain innovation platform of choice for Fortune 100 companies.
