Scientific research pushing the boundaries of blockchain technology.

Concordium uses scientific research to build the most secure and fastest blockchain, ensuring Concordium stays at the forefront of technology.

Concordium’s protocol is deeply rooted in the latest scientific research being developed at the Concordium Blockchain Research Center Aarhus (COBRA) in Denmark and ETH Zurich in Switzerland.

The Concordium Methodology

Concordium follows a proven methodology to ensure that our protocols are scientifically based and that there are no bugs in the software.

Customer demand driven process

Academic
Research

Concordium blockchain begins with research to determine what brings value to the users and how science can best support innovations in features such as functionality, safety, and speed.

Prototyping

Prototyping comprises specification and implementation of the functions presented in the science papers with due consideration to both the scientific findings and the possible technical and functional implementation for building the solution in practice.

Technical
Specification
& Coding

Technical specifications are created by the tech development and architectural team.
Add technical details and software architectural choices to the prototyped systems. Form the base with which the software development team programs the specification into a release candidate.

Testing & Q&A

Develop test cases from the technical specifications and ensure the final product behaves according to specification. Critical cryptographic components are also subjected to external review by experts to root out security flaws. The test team works independently of the development team.

Formal Verification

Concordium Blockchain Research Center is developing formal verification methods for blockchain applications, a mathematical technique for testing that the software works as intended in the specifications. The method of formal verification is developed for employment in high-stakes applications such as aeronautics software and banking software and will be gradually applied.
