kotlinx.coroutines future implementation relies on CompletableFuture and therefore requires JDK 8, but it also provides portable defer primitive and it's possible to build other implementations.

#coroutines do not rely on CompletableFeature or any other platform-dependent features, they are providing syntax to use whatever you want.
