Hyperledger, an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies, announced today it has welcomed five more members to its global community
The latest premier member to join Hyperledger is ConsenSys. General members joining the community are Ankr, Avanza Innovations, and Chengtay Infotech. Associate members joining this month include Collegium Da Vinci.
“At Ankr, we believe blockchain is the driving force for Web 3.0. At this important stage for the technology, Hyperledger is bridging the gap between blockchain innovators and existing enterprises. We are excited to work with Hyperledger to bring blockchain to mainstream adoption.”
– Chandler Song, Founder and CEO, Ankr
Hyperledger allows organizations to create solid, industry-specific applications, platforms and hardware systems to support their individual business transactions by offering enterprise-grade, open source distributed ledger frameworks and code bases.
“At ConsenSys, we are steadfast believers in rigorous standards and governance for open source projects. Hyperledger is a stalwart institution in our space, and has done an exceptional job of bringing alignment, clarity, and collaboration among disparate projects and opening the doors to enterprise adoption. Through our membership in Hyperledger, we’re excited to continue bringing Ethereum, in its public mainnet form as well as via instantiations of private permissioned networks using the technology, to the enterprise community, pushing our vision for Web 3.0 — the decentralized World Wide Web — forward.”
– Joe Lubin, Founder of ConsenSys and Ethereum co-creator
New Interest Group
Furthermore, in order to fuel further collaboration and adoption in the market, Hyperledger has also announced today the launch of its Capital Markets Special Interest Group (SIG).
The scope of the Hyperledger Capital Markets SIG (CM-SIG) includes:
- Drawing out a front-to-back taxonomy for a generic capital market infrastructure with variations on specific product lines
- Identifying the impact of Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs) and their place in the architecture (business, integration, infrastructure, regulation, market events, interaction between product lines)
- Analyzing risk calculations and scenarios including the impact of DLTs in pre-market, trading, hedging, day-to-day risk management, trading limits, and FRTB
- Tracking specific use cases, current pilots and proofs of concept, and production case studies with opportunities and risk; as well as solutions for the identified problems
- Collecting documentation on cross-cutting architectural principles, performance, and scalability, security, identity management, off-chain data, deployment and operation in regulated enterprises
- Advancing standards in capital markets for data in flight and at rest, events and responses, privacy in light of DLTs
Planning and participating in conferences or meetups to connect face to face, submit papers, talks, presentations
- Interfacing with companion SIGs like Trade Finance or Supply Chain to draw out common areas of concern and interactivity of solutions
- Documenting functional knowledge drawn from SIGs like Telecom, best practices from Social Impact as well as the knowledge drawn from Architecture, Identity and Performance and Scale Working Groups
