Evaluating Blockchain Technologies for Decentralized Finance

In a cooperation with our partners Cryptix AG and RIAT, the Austrian Blockchain Center (ABC) has tackled one of the most often discussed use cases of Blockchain technology: Decentralized Finance (DeFi), in particular privacy-preserving decentralized payment systems. The research initiative, which was embedded in Cryptix’s “Project Pallas”, looked into questions on scalability, degree of decentralization and privacy-preserving properties of blockchain platforms and protocols that are suitable for the development of such payment systems.
