Why a hybrid blockchain?
Businesses are drawn to blockchain by the potential cost-savings that gain be gained through trustless collaboration. Unfortunately, privacy constraints prevent wide-spread adoption of public blockchains.
Consortium chains provide an alternative, but these re-introduce most of the issues blockchain tries to solve, including network authority, memberships, conflicts of interrest, and high setup costs.
LTO Network allows for ad-hoc collaboration, where private data is shared peer-to-peer between parties. There is no need for a consortium as the entire global network helps to protect integrity.
