IPDB fosters research into decentralization and tech governance.

Our members offer solutions that will help to drive system openness and integrity.

The IPDB association fosters research into transparent governance and blockchain technology.
IPDB is overseeing technical solutions and research around the BigchainDB code base, with a focus on scalability as well as transparent and robust governance.

Multiple sovereign Networks

Customizable public or private IPDB networks can be set up for multiple parties to run for application development. Key features include flexible permissioning, low latency, Byzantine fault-tolerance, and rich query features with MongoDB.

Trust anchors

Self-sovereign networks need authorities, such as governments, to issue credentials. Once trusted issuing authorities are set up within the stacks IPDB oversees, the protocol ...

Transparent governance

The IPDB association is governed by its general assembly and its elected board. Members that run the nodes govern the BigChainDB network. The protocol’s consensus mechanisms provide on-chain governance, and the Association’s policies define off-chain governance.

IPDB Association


“IPBD rewards experimentation and research like no other distributed ledger organization. It also offers operational environments that are run by our members serving DLT applications that go beyond mere token transaction and storage systems. These networks are e.g. designed to extend any other blockchain with the capability to store metadata. This modularity supports interchangeable consensus models, signature and smart contract schemes. The results are scalability, support of high data throughput, short validation times, and programmability in any computer language that supports JSON serialization.”
