This is the pivot that Monax ended up at. Monax background post is here, they were always about private, permissioned blockchains:
We were the first to market with a permissionable, smart contract capable blockchain design which was later moved into the Hyperledger Foundation as Hyperledger Burrow. When we first released this codebase to the open source community, folks looked at us in wonderment (to put it nicely) and asked why a permissioned blockchain made any sense. Those days are largely over and the logic of having a permissioned layer within a blockchain network is now more widely understood. I have no hesitation in saying that we at Monax (previously Eris Industries) played a very big part in ensuring “blockchains for business” really are a thing.
