“Hyperledger Fabric 1.0 is a true milestone for our community,” said Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger.  “After over a year of public collaboration, testing, and validation in the form of POCs and pilots, consumers and vendors of technology based on Hyperledger Fabric can now advance to production deployment and operations. I look forward to seeing even more products and services being powered by Hyperledger Fabric in the next year and beyond.”

Hyperledger Fabric offers a modular architecture allowing components, such as consensus and membership services, to be plug-and-play. It leverages container technology to host smart contracts called “chaincode” that comprise the application logic of the system. Just 16 months ago, Hyperledger Fabric became the first of the eight Hyperledger projects to be incubated. Hyperledger Fabric was also the first of the Hyperledger projects to exit incubation to “Active” status in March, after a year in incubation.

The efforts around Hyperledger Fabric have grown into a true, vibrant community including engineers from: Arxan, Cloudsoft,  CLS, d20 Technical Services, The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), Digital Asset, Fujitsu, GE, Gemalto, HACERA, Hitachi, Huawei Technologies, Hyperchain, ImpactChoice,  IT People, Knoldus, The Linux Foundation, Netease, Passkit, State Street Bank, SecureKey, IBM, SAP, Thoughtworks and Wanda Group. There were also contributions from 35 unaffiliated individuals. In total, 159 developers have contributed to Hyperledger Fabric.

Hyperledger aims to create common distributed ledger technology that enables organizations to build and run robust, industry-specific applications, platforms and hardware systems to support their individual business transactions. The project has grown to more than 145 members since its inception, spanning various industries including finance, healthcare, the Internet of Things, credit card services, supply chain and aeronautics, among several others.

“I am so proud to be a part of the diverse community that came together to help birth Hyperledger’s first 1.0 project: Hyperledger Fabric 1.0. Of course, it doesn’t end here. There’s plenty more work to be done, more collaboration and more innovation on tap from all of the Hyperledger projects.” – Chris Ferris, Chair of Hyperledger’s Technical Steering Committee, CTO of Open Technology, IBM

“Long before I was nominated as co-release manager of Hyperledger Fabric 1.0 or even as a maintainer, we at HACERA, felt we should share our Blockchain, crypto and financial markets expertise to contribute to such a promising open-source project. Even though we have worked with Bitcoin’s Blockchain and Ethereum since the early days, enterprises are very different. Different industries have different regulatory requirements and business needs. It was a privilege to manage a release built by 28 companies who allocated over 150 engineers; we have learned so much from each other. This has motivated us, at HACERA, to build HACERA Kore – a framework allowing participants and organizations to seamlessly secure and protect sensitive data and information on Blockchains. I am confident these technologies will enable more enterprises to unlock the potential of Blockchains, even in highly regulated markets. ” – Jonathan Levi, Founder of HACERA, Hyperledger Fabric maintainer and a co-release manager of Hyperledger Fabric 1.0

 

Hyperledger 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 as a Collaborative Project under the foundation. To learn more, visit: https://www.hyperledger.org/.
