Chamber of Digital Commerce, Hyperledger partner to boost blockchain advocacy and education efforts
Two prominent names in the blockchain landscape have joined hands to further advocacy and education efforts on distributed ledger technology.
The Chamber of Digital Commerce, the world’s largest trade association representing the blockchain industry, and Hyperledger Project, a collaborative cross-industry effort created to advance blockchain technology, have announced a strategic partnership to strengthen industry advocacy and education efforts.
Under this partnership, both organizations will promote the understanding, acceptance and use of digital assets and blockchain-based technologies by leveraging the Chamber’s public policy expertise and Hyperledger’s technology expertise.
"Active engagement and collaboration between government authorities and the open source blockchain technology community is essential to realizing the potential of these new platforms and tools," said Brian Behlendorf, executive director of the Hyperledger Project. “I am pleased to welcome the Chamber of Digital Commerce to the Hyperledger Project. The policy expertise they bring will be extremely beneficial to our overall goals of driving open blockchain technology efforts forward.”
According to the official release, the Chamber and Hyperledger will immediately start focusing on public policy efforts, intellectual property issues, and global regulatory and technical interoperability.
“A pro-growth perspective towards regulation and industry standards are some of the biggest challenges the open source community faces,” said Perianne Boring, founder and president of the Chamber of Digital Commerce. “We are excited to work with the technical experts and open source community at the Hyperledger Project to further support our efforts on behalf of the blockchain industry.”
