Protocol Technology

The Centrifuge Operating System is a decentralized platform to support a new generation of applications for the financial supply chain.

The key components of our protocol are:

  • A scalable, secure, and privacy-preserving peer-to-peer protocol for the exchange of financial documents

  • Publicly verifiable proofs of document authenticity, anchored on Ethereum

  • The ability to mint standardized tokens on Ethereum, representing financial documents and agreements exchanged on the peer-to-peer protocol between the trading parties

  • Identities of Centrifuge users, stored and publicly verifiable on Ethereum

Open Source

We are strong believers in non-proprietary software and advocate treating our digital infrastructure as a commons, available for everyone to use and build on. We believe the best software is built in the open. Feel free to explore our code on Github.



Public blockchains, peer-to-peer technology and decentralization are dear to our hearts. We are not a permissioned blockchain and strongly adhere to the idea of open network participation and the breaking down of data silos.
