The development of R3's enterprise blockchain platform Corda is being plagued by fundamental disagreements over its core vision, causing frustration and delay. The claim was made in a report from FT Alphaville on Aug. 22, citing numerous insider sources.
Sources close to R3 reportedly allege that there is a gulf between Corda's engineers and its senior management as regards the product's design and development. Other sources have spoken of tensions at the level of the workforce, accusing the R3 engineers of being susceptible to a "Three-year itch" they believe besets the enterprise blockchain sector as a whole. Sources have spoken of irresolution as regards R3's identity - split between pitching itself as being a financial software firm to a more wide-ranging tech consortium.
As regards Corda itself, they claim there is a lack of ambition and clarity regarding exactly what kind of blockchain it aspires to be - and whether or not it will at all remain committed to distributed ledger technology also known as DLT. This split has become tribal, they allege, with a split between so-called Corda maximalists and those open to pursuing interoperability. Among the R3 engineers, anonymous sources have said the consortium is trying to market software that is still ill-conceived and underdeveloped; they added that R3 is struggling to manage its burgeoning client base.
