We’re excited to announce the release of a new developer journey, Run blockchain technology on a Linux mainframe. Over the last two decades, we’ve seen a huge increase in the number of digital technologies that have disrupted entire industries. Whether it’s the world’s information at our fingertips through a smartphone, or the ability to construct and monetize new cloud applications built on a burgeoning API economy, the pace of change has never been greater. But there’s an emerging technology that is truly in ascendency: blockchain. It promises to transform entire business ecosystems by laying down a new digital fabric for business. The essence of blockchain is to significantly improve efficiency and trust in the transfer of assets between multiple parties in a given transaction. Over its lifetime, a single asset can traverse the books — that is, the ledgers — of multiple organizations.
