Pantheon is an Apache 2.0 licensed Ethereum client written in Java. Pantheon is public chain compatible, with a more modular architecture and roadmap to add privacy, permissioning, and new consensus algorithms.
We chose Java due to its appeal to enterprises, large open-source community, and mature ecosystem.
We regularly conduct code audits to address potential security concerns. We worked with Trail of Bits to audit Pantheon’s code base prior to devcon iv.
