About the Canton Network

The Canton Network is the financial industry’s first privacy-enabled, interoperable blockchain network designed for institutional assets, launched by a group of leading financial institutions, infrastructure providers, technology firms, and consultants on 9 May 2023. The Canton Network’s design overcomes the shortfalls of existing smart-contract blockchain networks and enables previously siloed systems in finance to become interoperable and synchronized in ways that had been impossible before. Offering the privacy and controls required for highly regulated organizations, the Canton Network creates a safe and sound environment in which assets, data, and cash can move freely across applications in real time, unlocking new efficiencies and powering innovation.
