Hyperledger Project, a collaborative cross-industry effort created to advance blockchain technology, announced today at Sibos in Geneva, Switzerland, that five new members have joined the project to help create an open standard for distributed ledgers for a new generation of transactional applications.
Membership has grown significantly since the beginning of the year, making Hyperledger the fastest growing collaborative project ever hosted by The Linux Foundation.
"It's great to see such strong growth and support behind Hyperledger, as the potential with blockchain is far-reaching and will become pervasive in enterprises, government agencies, and even the public sector," said Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger. "Our newest members bring unique value to the community; I look forward to advancing open blockchain standards and continuing to drive development efforts with them."
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.
The new Hyperledger members join a rapidly growing and diverse group across finance, banking, Internet of Things, supply chains, manufacturing and other technologies. The latest members include: Aesthetic Integration, BLOCKO Inc., Hangzhou Fuzamei Technology, PDX Technologies and Zhejiang Shuqin Technology.
