 Run a node, and receive incentives
 Add to the blockchain
 Verify and authenticate past transactions

• Governance
*Privacy
*Cost effective

  1. I assume you mean a permissioned business to business collaboration, because you can have a permission less business to business collaboration also.
  • Provides an immutable ledger of transactions once placed in the block chain.
  • Provides a transparent ledger of transactions, data or records kept on the blockchain.
  • All business parties can easily and quickly read the ledger.
  • The block chain can be easily updated and improved.
  • Anyone can use and join the network without permission from an authority.
  • Works in a trust-less environment. No central authority or person manages the block chain.
  • The ledger of transaction is immutable and can not be hacked, changed, destroyed or revised.
  • Bitcoin
  • Ethereum
  • Cardano
  1. People who have been approved by an authority or owner of the block chain.

  2. They scale better, are easier to maintain, change and update. Security is provided by selecting participants rather than employing consensus algorithms that can require resources to operate. An incentive program is not required to approve transactions. The block chain can be tailored to a companies specific needs and is therefore more efficient and streamlined.

  1. What benefits do blockchain provide in business-to-business collaborations?
    In business-to-business collaborations, blockchain can mediate trust and eliminate third parties.

In business-to-business scenarios, blockchain networks allow for increased trust between parties, and instant access to relevant, authentic information.

  1. What property of a blockchain does the name “Permissionless” refer to?
    The decentralization property is being refered to as there is no central authority and no limitation imposed by the developers. Anyone can run the software, join the group.

  2. What are 3 examples of permissionless blockchains?
    BCH, ETH, EOS

  3. Who are allowed to join a permissioned blockchain network?
    Thos who are invited.

  4. Why do you think permissioned blockchain networks are preferred by many companies?
    Because they can maintain or exert control.
    Permissioned blockchains are preferred by centralized organizations, which leverage the power of the network for their own, internal business operations.


#6

1. What benefits do blockchain provide in business-to-business collaborations?
Blockchain increased trust between parties, instant access to relevant and authentic information. It will revolutionize the way B2B/user transactions and processes are carried out.
2. What property of a blockchain does the name “Permissionless” refer to?
No one controls the blockchain so it refers to transparency property.
3. What are 3 examples of permissionless blockchains?
Bitcoin, Etherium, EOS.
4. Who are allowed to join a permissioned blockchain network?
Only members of the business network.
5. Why do you think permissioned blockchain networks are preferred by many companies?
Because they want to keep their business information and features under their own control but it is only the transition to a public B2B structure.


#7
  1. Allow transactions to selected user groups in a controlled way.
  2. It means anyone can use and or be part of the network including the incentives and consensus mechanism
  3. Bitcoin, Litecoin, ethereum.
    4 Only those that the owners (those controlling the Blockchain) permit access to.

5 It’s all about control (or being seen to be in control by their clients and stakeholders)


#8

1) What benefits do blockchain provide in business-to-business collaborations?
Blockchain networks alloW increased trust between parties,
Instant access to relevant and authentic information.
Provide a historical record of all transactions alongside the means to record these entries.

2) What property of a blockchain does the name “Permissionless” refer to?
You dont need permission to partake in the blockchain network. Once you follow the blockchain network rules your entries are accepted to the ledger.

3) What are 3 examples of permissionless blockchains?
Bitcoin
Litecoin
Monero

4) Who are allowed to join a permissioned blockchain network?
A permissioned network is centrally controlled by an organisation or closed ecosystem. So they only will accept transactions created by a trusted party.

5) Why do you think permissioned blockchain networks are preferred by many companies?
Security is much more available to the company as they can create the rules.
Cost is much lower as there is no need for mining, all the nodes involved are trusted.
Increased transactions per second, you only need to time stamp a bunch of transactions and let the nodes sync them over time.

#11
