Chain, a fintech company focused on blockchain solutions, released Chain Core Developer Edition, an open-source version of Chain Core, its distributed-ledger platform.

Developers can now download and install Chain Core and start or join a blockchain network, build apps and read technical documents and tutorials. Prototypes created via Chain Core Developer Edition can be run on a test network operated by Microsoft and the Initiative for Cryptocurrencies and Contracts (IC3), a collaboration of five universities, in addition to Chain.

"We are thrilled to give developers everywhere open access to Chain's platform," said Ryan Smith, CTO of Chain, in a statement. "Chain Core Developer Edition provides a seamless end-to-end experience to design, build, and test prototypes on a system we created from the ground up to suit the scalability and security requirements of the financial industry."

For the October issue of Waters, we produced a three-part series looking at how capital markets firms are embracing distributed-ledger technologies and digital currencies, as well as looking at where the space has been vastly overhyped.
