Washington DC based Chamber of Digital Commerce, a US trade association representing the Blockchain industry has teamed up with the open source Blockchain Hyperledger project managed by the Linux Foundation to strengthen industry advocacy and education efforts.
“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.”
Leveraging the Chamber’s public policy expertise and Hyperledger’s technology expertise, both market leading organizations will further promote the understanding, acceptance and use of digital assets and Blockchain-based technologies.
Areas of common interest that the Chamber and Hyperledger will immediately begin focusing on, include 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.”
