The Corda DJVM approach is similar in nature to the Ethereum EVM approach of the previous generation smart contracts. These contracts has to be run by every node (they do try to mask it but it is true) and therefore require metered execution and cannot interface with any external resources. Our lightweight contracts does not have these limitations, their execution is not metered and they can freely interface with external systems, therefore they do need such restrictions.

Roubini is Right

Reflecting on Nouriel Roubini’s cryptocurrency testimony at the senate on 12 October 2018.

As an entrepreneur in public blockchain networks, my first reaction to this inaccurate and misleading testimony was to dismiss it as yet another horse carriage manufacturer speaking about steam cars, as a turbo propeller engine specialist referring to jet engines, as an MS-DOS user talking about Windows 1.0, or as a Nokia executive reviewing the first iPhone.
