Why Blockchain?

BigchainDB has taken a big data distributed database and given it blockchain characteristics. The result: a decentralised database capable of one million writes per second throughput, storing petabytes of data and sub-second latency.

The BigchainDB white paper states that its “permissioning system enables congurations ranging from private enterprise blockchain databases to open, public blockchain databases. BigchainDB is complementary to decentralised processing platforms like Ethereum, and decentralised systems like InterPlanetary File System (IPFS)”.
