Every node represents a authorized entity, recognized by a trusted identification certificates.

With U.S. Federal Regulators saying that U.S. nationwide banks can maintain reserves for stablecoin issuers, the XDC case examine demonstrates that the Public Corda Community is an appropriate selection for banks and wider CBDC tasks to construct upon.
