Hyperledger, the open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies, today announced six more organizations have joined the community. The newest members represent the balance of blue-chip, entrepreneurial and technology-focused organizations that are at the core of Hyperleder’s diverse ecosystem. Hyperledger is a multi-project, multi-stakeholder effort that includes 10 business blockchain and distributed ledger technologies.
These projects are the result of the hands-on work of contributors around the world who develop and maintain the code for the frameworks and tools as well as provide governance and organizational resources.
To date, the community has made thousands of code contributions, adding up to millions of lines of code. This collective development effort most recently delivered the releases of Hyperledger Fabric 1.3.
“Our growing, diverse and active community is what powers Hyperledger. Preparing for the first Hyperledger Global Forum has really brought the scope and scale of all this community has accomplished into focus. Everything from the advances to the core technology to the diverse use cases and the increasing success stories to community-led training and collaboration underscore Hyperledger’s growing momentum. The latest members bring even more energy and diversity to the table, helping advance enterprise blockchain adoption worldwide.”
Hyperledger enables organizations to build robust, industry-specific applications, platforms, and hardware systems to support their individual business transactions by creating enterprise-grade, open source distributed ledger frameworks and code bases. The latest general members to join the community are: CENCON BLOCKCHAIN GROUP, State Farm Insurance, and Vered Information Technology.
Hyperledger supports an open community that values contributions and participation from various entities. As such, pre-approved non-profits, open source projects and government entities can join Hyperledger at no cost as associate members. Associate members joining this month include CPqD, Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) and Information Technologies Institute, a member of Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH).
