A lot of research has been done in the subject of Blockchains and the way they achieve agreement between the trustless parties that take part of it. Enhancements in cryptographic protocols, settlement layers, consensus algorithms and segregation has produced enterprise grade/ more efficient and scalable Blockchains to meet demands of the global usage.
