Notes on blockchain technology and market segmentation

Having a lot of competing blockchain platforms it is pretty much difficult to identify which platform to use for a certain use-case. The following directions can be considered:
- B2B market: typically consortium blockchain platforms, like Hyperledger. 
- Inter-banking B2B market: here special platforms need to be considered that can satisfy the requirements of the banking sector, like Corda or Ripple. 
- B2C market: here both consortium and public networks can be used. If the users could have a direct access to the blockchain platform than typically public networks, if the technological details are hidden, than consortium ones. 
- C2C market: on a fully decentralized customer to customer market, only public platforms can be used.
