Codenotary uses immudb to underpin its notarization and verification product. There have been more than 12 million downloads of immudb so far.

"Last month the introduction of full ACID transactional integrity compliance in immudb meant it can become the main transactional database for enterprises," said Jerónimo Irázabal, co-founder of immudb and lead architect at Codenotary. "Now, everyone is looking for enhanced security and immudb offers superior data integrity, so it is seeing surging popularity like never before."
