The Hyperledger Project, a collaborative Blockchain technology initiative has announced 17 new organizations have joined to help create an open standard for distributed ledgers for a new generation of transactional applications.
“There’s been a tremendous response to our vision for creating an open community for Blockchain technology and we’re proud to be celebrating this member milestone,” said Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director of Hyperledger Project. “At a growth rate of nearly two new members joining per week — there’s no telling where we’ll be at by the end of the year — I look forward to working with this growing community to further our open Blockchain development efforts.”
Hyperledger Project is working to enable organizations to build and run 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.
“Energy Blackchain Laboratory is privileged to be the first energy focused team to join the Hyperledger Project,” said Dr. Lin Le, CEO and Founding Partner of Energy Blackchain Laboratory. “The lab’s mission is to create a next generation ecosystem of energy industry that is organized by the people, operated by the people, and for the purpose of serving the people. We will continue to contribute to add to Hyperledger’s definition and develop energy Blockchain applications to be adopted along the whole energy industry value chain.”
The new Hyperledger members come from across Europe, Asia and the United States and join a rapidly growing and diverse group across finance, banking, Internet of Things, supply chains, manufacturing and other technologies. The latest members include: Cloud Security Alliance, Energy Blockchain Laboratory, Global Peersafe Technology Corp., Inuit Foundation – University of Rome “Tor Vergata,” Intuit, Investrata Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship (IFSE), iRootech Technology Co., Ltd, MIRACL UK Limited, Netki, Nxt Foundation, Orange Magic Cube (GoX Tech), Samsung SDS, Sany Heavy Group Co., Ltd, Tai Cloud Corp., Union Mobile Pay E-Commerce Co., Ltd., Wutongtree and Yunphant Blockchain.
“Blockchain is very complex, as it can be applied to both technology and business scenarios, making it difficult to put into practice,” said Yan Ting, CEO of PeerSafe. “We have participated in some bank projects, such as existing database and cloud computing combined applications. We also hope to accelerate the innovation through the Hyperledger project, and contribute our value to standardize Blockchain technology.”
The Hyperledger project is an open source collaborative effort created to advance Blockchain technology by addressing important features for a cross-industry open standard for distributed ledgers. It is a global collaboration including leaders in finance, banking, Internet of Things, supply chains, manufacturing and Technology. The Linux Foundation hosts Hyperledger Project as a Collaborative Project under the foundation. To learn more, visit: https://www.hyperledger.org/.
