Hyperledger has recently announced that it has surpassed the 250 member mark with the addition of nine new members.
Hyperledger is an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies.
Hyperledger is a multi-project, multi-stakeholder effort that includes 10 business blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. New code contributions and community development continues to advance all of these frameworks and tools, translating into milestones like the recent release of Hyperledger Fabric 1.2.
To fuel further growth and collaboration, this worldwide community is invited to take part in Hyperledger Global Forum from December 12-15 in Basel, Switzerland.
Hyperledger’s Executive Director, Brian Behlendorf, said while July is traditionally a quiet month, the company has been quite busy hitting some key community and technology milestones.
He added that they are focused on continuing their growth and advancing their open source, multiple framework approach to meet the increasingly diverse applications for blockchain technology.
According to Brian, as they plan for the Hyperledger Global Forum, they will be calling on these new members and the entire ecosystem to keep driving the vision and technology forward to scale to meet the global demand for blockchain-powered businesses.
Hyperledger aims to enable organizations to build robust, industry-specific applications, platforms and hardware systems to support their individual business transactions by creating enterprise-grade, open source distributed ledger frameworks and code bases. The latest general members to join the community are: Coil, ChainDigit, Chainyard, DigiCert, LG CNS, Omnitude, Tierion and UTRUST.
Hyperledger supports an open community that values contributions and participation from various entities. As such, pre-approved non-profits, open source projects and government entities can join Hyperledger at no cost as associate members. Associate members joining this month include Kiva.
