“A private chain is just a cloud database achieved by way of the peer-to-peer Ethereum protocol: it’s a silo that you control and that you can grant access to. This should be contrasted with a permissioned blockchain , which like an enterprise software application has defined roles with permissions that can be set by a central administrator.”
Chris Dannen, Introducing Ethereum and Solidity: Foundations of Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Programming for Beginners

“Indeed, only a public chain is truly trustworthy for high-value transactions, because only a public chain is secured by so much proof of work.”
Chris Dannen, Introducing Ethereum and Solidity: Foundations of Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Programming for Beginners

“What Ethereum Is Good For Ethereum is suited to building economic systems in pure software. In other words, it’s software for business logic, wherein people (users) can move money (data representing value) around with the speed and scale that we normally get with data.12 Not the three- to seven-day floating period you get with the commercial banking system. Or the fees associated with vendors such as Visa, MasterCard, and PayPal. With a simple Ethereum application, for example, it is fairly trivial to pay hundreds of thousands of people, in hundreds of countries, small amounts every few minutes, whereas in the legacy banking system you would need an entire payroll department working overtime to constantly rebalance your account ledgers and deal with the cross-border issues.”
