Hyperledger blockchain project adds 10 new members
Hyperledger blockchain project continues to add new members to its cohort, growing to over 160 members.
The open source collaborative effort aims to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. Hyperledger has added 10 new organisations as general members, including AMIHAN, ChongQin Xichain Technologies, DLT Labs, GameCredits, Gibraltar Stock Exchange (GSX), Medicalchain, and ScanTrust.
"The immense growth we've seen this year signifies an acceptance and understanding of Hyperledger blockchain solutions for business," said Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger. "These new diverse members have agreed to contribute their leadership and energy to the Hyperledger community. We thank them for their support and validation as we drive towards more PoCs, pilots and production uses cases of Hyperledger technologies in the enterprise."
This follows the addition of a number of Associate members earlier this month, including Mercy Corps, Taiwan Fintech Association, and Zhejiang University.
As a multi-project, multi-stakeholder effort, Hyperledger incubates eight business blockchain and distributed ledger technologies including Hyperledger Fabric, Hyperledger Iroha, Hyperledger Indy, Hyperledger Burrow, Hyperledger Sawtooth, among others.
Hyperledger is a global collaboration including leaders in finance, banking, IoT, supply chain, manufacturing and technology. It aims to enable organizations to build robust, industry-specific applications, platforms, and hardware systems to support their individual business transactions by creating an enterprise grade, open source distributed ledger framework and code base.
