Private blockchains that operate only within one entity or may be shared between any number of specified entities. There are many reasons why private blockchains are usually chosen for industry.

The existence of private blockchains enables users to have more faith in each other since only trustworthy parties would be invited to join the network. For trust building, there is less need for such a strong consensus system as can be seen in public blockchains.

Though, the biggest difference is who has access to the network. Private blockchains are designed with limited access to and participation in mind. As a consequence, the identities of all participants on the network are identified and trusted by others.

Private blockchains bring: streamlined governance, reduced costs, pace and confidentiality. All without the loss of control of the public blockchain.

Advantages of Private & Permissioned Blockchains:-

  • More efficient performance
  • Clearly defined governance structures
  • High customizability
  • Access controls
  • Better Scalability

Popular Permissioned Blockchain Platforms

Let's have an overview of what platforms are available to build private permissioned blockchain applications


Ethereum development is an efficient approach to create secure & scalable apps that are customized to the specific needs and runs dApps which increases operational efficiency.


Quorum is a decentralized platform that allows us to build permissioned blockchain-based DApps, and it is suitable for permissioned blockchain, and provides very high performance.


Parity is used for building blockchains and spawning decentralised innovation. It is the next-generation platform for connecting independent blockchains together.


MultiChain is a platform to build permissioned blockchain-based DApps. Unique features of MultiChain include permissions management, data streams, and assets.


An umbrella project of open-source blockchains to build enterprise-grade blockchain apps. We offer a wide range of network platforms namely Hyperledger Fabric, Burrow, Iroha and Sawtooth.


Corda is an open-source blockchain project that allows us to design and develop in the open development environment. We help clients with Corda nodes and enable permissions on smart contracts.

Private & Permissioned blockchains need permission to join the network and may restrict the accessibility of blockchain data through encryption.

Private blockchains work differently and provide greater discretion over who can enter and what is available to others, making them much more enticing for companies to do business with each other.

Why Choose Private & Permissioned Blockchain?

At ListChain, we build fast and simple proprietary solutions on permissioned Blockchain

Secure Transactions

Ensures secure transactions as each block in the network is managed by a private entity.

Reliable Operation

Guarantees a shared system with real-time updates of all nodes across the network.

Strengthens Trust

Build trust among the participants of a network with the capability to view the most recent data.


No single point of failure as they function as a shared database without a central authority.


Higher ability than public networks due to a limited number of members.

Transaction Speed

Faster than public networks owing to higher levels of trust and lower number of cross point checks.
