Is the first decentralized peer-to-peer payment network that is powered by its users with no central authority or middlemen

As well as MultiChain 1.0 now is into production, the company also unveils the addition of 14 new members to the MultiChain Partner Program, among which are Cognizant, Indra Sistemas, Aicumen, Bambusoft, Chainfrog, CrimsonLogic, Encrypgen, Hypatia Technologies, Maroon Studios, Medici Ventures, Project Radium, SolarLab, The Apollo Group and Tilkal.

Now, after 2.5 eyars of the development, MultiChain 1.0 is available for download for Linux, Windows and Mac. According to the data provided, since its first alpha release in June 2015, MultiChain has received over 60,000 downloads, more than half of which were during 2017.

We’re delighted to have reached this milestone. Developing the first production release of MultiChain has been an immense challenge, and we’ve learned a great deal about our users and their requirements along the way. Work has already begun on MultiChain 2.0, which will be the first version of MultiChain to come in two editions – Community (open source) and Enterprise (commercial).

The MultiChain Partner Program has now been split into two tracks – Platform Partners who develop applications for third parties on the MultiChain platform, and Product Partners who are using MultiChain in their own proprietary solutions. 

Apart from that, the company is already hard at work developing MultiChain 2.0 and hope to have a first preview release available before the end of the year.
