The FORUS Core stack, built around blockchain technology, has been designed from inception as a secure, loosely coupled, distributed, scalable service in the cloud which not only enables a transactional ecosystem rich in functionality and possibility, but one which can be extended by third-parties wishing to deploy additional processes as a source of utility through their own secure scripts and smart code contracts.

Whilst the core banking functionality provides and supports traditional payment switching and legacy banking services, it also supports a range of newer protocols such as Inter-ledger for inter-bank and ledger communication as supplementary to its own real-time cross-border settlement capability.

The federated and distributed blockchain implementation of the core provides a high-performance, secure, immutable ledger combined with rich permissions which allows privacy right down to role, transaction and contract level. The nature of data or information stored in the blockchain is highly customizable whilst remaining searchable which enables a host of functionality including line item searches, real-time inventory optimization and more.
