Is it possible that companies/governments can run their own HCS network, using their own nodes?
I was reading through the Hedera Implementation Prosal page, and noticed this bit of text:
"These proposals and discussions have no effect regarding private (permissioned) implementations of the Hashgraph consensus algorithm..."
Up until now I'd heard of architectures where private permissioned blockchains can leverage HCS for their consensus layer, but I hadn't considered the possibility of running an entirely private HCS network.
I don't want to extrapolate too much from this, I'm just interested if anyone is aware of any projects using private networks?
