Frequently Asked Questions

No. A ledger database - or sub-ledger - automatically keeps track of balances related to a financial product or process. Companies use Ledgers to power the balance you see in an app like Splitwise, or to inform marketplace payouts in platforms like ClassPass. In these use cases, only a subset of transactions are tracked, and automatic, real-time access to balances is paramount. This differs from an accounting general ledger, which typically records all financial transactions for a company with the intent of creating retroactive financial statements.

Double-entry accounting is a time-tested method of accounting for tracking financial transactions. Implementing double-entry can help engineering teams create verifiable audit trails and ensure consistency. Ledgers abstracts away the technical complexity of implementing double-entry at the database level, allowing engineers to spend less time building accurate financial infrastructure.
