Accenture Unveils Prototype of “Editable” Scarring Blockchain

Postby » Mon Sep 19, 2016 1:10 pm

Can an unchangeable record still be called unchangeable if you can change it? Accenture (NYSE: ACN) seems to think so. The technology consulting firm has created a prototype of a blockchain (an immutable distributed ledger by definition) that can be edited.

The developers say this measure can be taken under “extraordinary circumstances to resolve human errors, accommodate legal and regulatory requirements, and address mischief and other issues, while preserving key cryptographic features.” While they do not mention it, this could be seen as an alternative solution to the hard fork strategy taken by Ethereum developers following the DAO hack debacle.
