Following on last year's presentation, https://hgf18.sched.com/event/JKe4, Accenture will provide an update on their continued work around Blockchain Interoperability.

The solution defines a communication model to enable permissioned blockchain ecosystems to exchange any on-chain data or custom assets (fungible/non fungible) independent of the platform (e.g. Hyperledger Fabric, Quorum, etc.) without a middleman. This projectimplements an interoperability validator network, which is an overlay network of hand-picked actors that will validate and sign data before sharing. An “interoperability validator” overlay network is introduced for each of the interoperable blockchains. Interoperability validators are known or broadly discoverable by the ecosystem and are typically participants already taking part in the governance or consensus.

This project proposes an alternative to existing interoperability models, and it is designed specifically for permissioned blockchain networks.

An update on the project status willbe provided together with an overview on the roadmap and the planned future work. A live technical demo showcasing the protocol in action will be provided.
