The Baseline Protocol is a process standard for using blockchain or distributed ledger technology as a common frame of reference between two or more disparate systems. Enforcing real time data-reciprocity between ERPs, databases or state machines, or amongst other distributed technologies allows participants to verify counterparty data integrity and consistency throughout any business process. It is particularly promising as a way to reduce capital expense and other overheads while increasing operational integrity when automating business processes across multiple companies.
