From: The privacy protection mechanism of Hyperledger Fabric and its application in supply chain finance

Blockchain-Based Accounting Method Traditional Ledgers
Decentralized; Distributed storage, each peer has the same ledger Centralized; Each participant only saves its own ledgers
Traceable, each transaction is recorded Untraceable, whether the transaction is recorded or not is determined by the participant
Transaction records cannot be tampered after multiple verifications Each participant is able to modify their own ledgers
Channel and Privacy Data Collections in Hyperledger fabric are designed to protect data privacy Protecting user’s privacy with a login password
Data sharing and privacy protection are both implemented Data sharing is not implemented
