The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, announced on Tuesday the members, open governance structure and technical updates to the new Hyperledger Project that was announced at the end of 2015.
“The Hyperledger Project has ramped up incredibly fast, a testament to how much pent-up interest, potential and enterprise demand there is for a cross-industry open standard for distributed ledgers,” said Jim Zemlin, executive director at The Linux Foundation.
The members involved in the initiative have grown to 30 and include: ABN AMRO, Accenture, ANZ Bank, Blockchain, BNY Mellon, Calastone, Cisco, CLS, CME Group, ConsenSys, Credits, The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), Deutsche Börse Group, Digital Asset Holdings, Fujitsu Limited, Guardtime, Hitachi, IBM, Intel, IntellectEU, J.P. Morgan, NEC, NTT DATA, R3, Red Hat, State Street, SWIFT, Symbiont, VMware and Wells Fargo.
The Linux Foundation has officially formed the Hyperledger Project and is accepting new members. Those who are interested to join the initiative can connect with its technical community via mailing lists and GitHub. It has just started reviewing contributions and is engaging on potential ideas for kicking off the technical project.
The initiative, since the December announcement, has received proposed code and technology contributions from several companies, including Blockstream, Digital Asset, IBM and Ripple. Other community members, the Linux Foundation said, “are contemplating contributions of their own”.

The trademark for the initiative’s name ‘Hyperledger’ has been given by Digital Asset. The press release said that the use of the mark will be managed exclusively by the Governing Board of the Hyperledger Project with the approval of the Linux Foundation.
