History

Earliest public documentation of the so-called Disney Private Blockchain Platform dates back to 2014. In June 2016 over 20 use cases that have been explored inside Disney were shared with the World Wide Web Consortium, its blockchain community group. In October 2016 the platform is released as open-source software under the Apache 2.0 license and was mentioned as one of Disney's best open source releases. In January 2017 The Dragonchain Foundation was founded, which is a non-profit organization created to maintain the open source code. Joe Roets is the Founder and CEO and has build the commercial Dragonchain entity on top of the open source code, which is now known as the current blockchain company named Dragonchain. Roets was asked by Disney through a phone call to develop the architecture from scratch and moved him and his family to Seattle, WA. In 2017 Dragonchain conducted a token sale that raised as much as $13 million. On February 23, 2018 the Nasdaq listed enterprise Fluent, formerly known as Cogint, acquired a minority interest in Dragonchain.
