Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Crosses 250 Members Mark

Hyperledger had already created quite a lot of buzz in the crypto-community when it was first announced. Being a one of a kind open source collaboration among several heads, made to achieve more breakthroughs in the crypto and blockchain technologies across industries, the platform had definitely been seen as a very progressive and profitable move.

Now, Hyperledger has announced the addition of 9 new members, and thereby the platform is finally crossing the 250 member mark, which is a breakthrough indeed. In order to be able to keep up this pace, and keep moving forward with more growth and collaborations, the community has been invited to mingle and participate in the Hyperledger Global Forum in Basel, Switzerland, slated to be held from 12 to 15 December.

Hyperledger is a community effort, running multiple projects, and having several stakeholders as well. Contributions in the form of newer and more advanced codes and developments from the community continue to facilitate the progress of these frameworks and tools. The recently released Hyperledger Fabric 1.2 is a new achievement that is proof of these new advancements in the community. Executive Director of Hyperledger Brian Behlendorf has the following things to say:

“While July is traditionally a quiet month, we’ve been quite busy hitting some key community and technology milestones. Heading into the second half of the year, we are focused on continuing our growth and advancing our open source, multiple framework approach to meet the increasingly diverse applications for blockchain technology. As we plan for the Hyperledger Global Forum, we will be calling on these new members and the entire ecosystem to keep driving the vision and technology forward and scale to meet the global demand for blockchain-powered businesses.”

Hyperledger has always aimed to back their individual business transactions by facilitating organisations to build strong softwares specific to the relevant industry, platforms, and hardware systems. They do this by creating blockchain-based ledger frameworks that business-grade and open source, as well as creating code bases. Coil, ChainDigit, LG CNS, Digicert, Omnitude, Cgainyard, UTRUST, and Tierion are new general members that have been added to the community roster.

Hyperledger is a community that promotes contributions and participation from various external sources and third parties as well. Therefore, non-profit organisations that have been previously approved, open source projects, and even government entities can freely join the platform as “associate members”. An associate member due to join this month is Kiva.
