SAN FRANCISCO, May 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Hyperledger, an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies, today announced 10 more organizations have joined its growing global community. These new members join just as the Hyperledger portfolio of production-ready projects doubles and Forbes documents the scope of Hyperledger deployments in leading global businesses.
Hyperledger is a multi-venture, multi-stakeholder effort hosted at the Linux Foundation that includes various enterprise blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. According to the recent Forbes Blockchain 50 list, over half of the biggest companies deploying blockchain are doing so on a Hyperledger platform. And now two more projects, Hyperledger Indy and Hyperleger Iroha, have hit development milestones that make them production ready.
“As the Forbes 50 shows, blockchain technologies and, specifically Hyperledger projects, are now having real-world impact,” said Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger. “With four production-ready frameworks and 270 members working to develop and deploy Hyperledger technologies around the world, the rate of adoption and the rise of production systems will only accelerate. Our newest members will further fuel this growing community, deployment and development momentum.”
Hyperledger allows organizations to create solid, industry-specific applications, platforms and hardware systems to support their individual business transactions by offering enterprise-grade, open source distributed ledger frameworks and code bases. The latest general members to join the community are Consensus Datatrust Technology Co., Ltd., FRST Corp., Fusion Tech+, Hedera Hashgraph LLC, INBLOCK Ltd, RealMarket and Xilinx, Inc.
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 Arizona State University, Portland State University and University College London.

“It is a great honor to join and be a member of Hyperledger,” said Maolu Wang, Chairman, Consensus Datatrust. “As a revolutionary new technology, blockchain has shown great potential in the field of B terminal. We understand that the solution of digital letter integrates blockchain and big data. We believe that blockchain technology can be used as a link for multi-party data sharing to solve previous business problems by technical means. As a member of Hyperledger, we will provide strong technology promotion and product promotion support, and we look forward to making continuous contributions to the community.”
“The open source dev ecosystem has a tradition of testing assumptions, trying new things, and building important, evolving codebases. FRST is excited to join the Hyperledger community, and we believe participation will advance our work as a data-driven, blockchain-native enterprise analytics company,” said Karl T. Muth, CEO of FRST. “We can’t wait to share our questions and ideas with this community.”
“We are very happy to join Hyperledger and look forward to collaborating with the community to provide innovative solutions for our partners and customers,” said Yang Lu, CTO of Fusion Tech+. “Fusion Tech+ is a smart technology company under Fusion Group. Relying on the strong strategic layout of the IoT, Fusion Tech+ puts forward the concept of Tech+ for enabling innovation and an integrated service platform called ‘Fusionfintrade,’ which deeply integrates technology, finance and scenarios to create a mutual enabling ecosystem. Our platform supports many scenarios and, as we develop it, we will also be actively contributing to the Hyperledger ecosystem and working with the other members to promote the development of technology and industry.”
“We are excited to join the Hyperledger community, which comprises some of the most forward-looking organizations working on distributed ledger technology,” said Mance Harmon, CEO of Hedera Hashgraph. “We know enterprises have been exploring DLT use cases with Hyperledger technology. Hedera provides an enterprise-grade public network that complements those existing and future projects.”
“It’s been a long-time goal for us to join the Linux Foundation and Hyperledger,” said Jay Baek, vice president at INBLOCK. “Since the introduction of Mainnet last year, we’ve been cooperating with leading experts and allies in the blockchain industry to develop and improve the global business value. While our focus in on digital assets, we see that blockchain has the potential to revolutionize all industries, and we hope to contribute to the technology’s wide, real world impact.”
“RealMarket is a FinTech/RegTech company producing innovative alternative finance solutions using enterprise blockchain, machine learning, and big data. Our ultimate vision is a fully programmable economy powering groundbreaking and sustainable development worldwide,” said Dr. Dušan Gajić, CEO of RealMarket. “Thus, it is natural for us to join Hyperledger and the Linux Foundation, and we are both proud and excited to do so. Hyperledger is vital to our efforts as its suite of technologies ensures that the store of business-vital data and the rules governing their transformation are securely distributed. It is our aim to help develop Hyperledger further as we build an innovative platform combining equity crowdfunding, a private equity secondary market, cap table management, and corporate governance automation. All of this is only possible because Hyperledger Fabric is at the core of our system.”
Hyperledger is an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. It is a global collaboration including leaders in finance, banking, Internet of Things, supply chains, manufacturing and Technology. The Linux Foundation hosts Hyperledger under the foundation.

Hyperledger Has Gone Ahead To Launch The Iroha 1.0
The Hyperledger has been designed as a collaborative cross-industry effort that has been created in the hopes of advancing the blockchain technology. They have just gone ahead to announce that the Hyperledger Iroha 1.0 has been made available.
The Fourth Project That Has Been Able To Reach The 1.0
The Hyperledger Iroha 1.0 is part of the Linux Foundation and has been considered to be among the four active projects that has been able to reach the 1.0. It is after the previous three Hyperledger; it is the Likes of Indy, Sawtooth and Fabric.
The Iroha has been designed as a distributed ledger with a primary goal of developing an active C++ environment together with a mobile application that will enable the different developers in the market be able to contribute to the platform.
Some Of The Features You Should Expect To Enjoy
There are four main features that you should expect to enjoy as a user.
The YAC Consensus – it is a protocol that has been designed to ensure that safety of the ledger has been achieved throughout the platform even in a situation that a node is faulty or not trusted.
A Multi-signature that is fully operational – if a transaction requires a multi-signature then you will be in good hands while on this platform.
The client libraries – this is adequately updated to ensure it is able to support the writing applications on the different platforms that exist, this is straight from your mobile to the mainframe with the use of different languages. This is the likes of Java, iOS, JS and Python.
There is Windows support – this feature might be experimental but the Iroha is able to run on Windows natively, but this is not all as it is also able to operate on the MacOS and Linux environment.
The Hyperledger Iroha has been designed with an alternative solution for those who are mobile oriented; thus, it is able to provide the other three projects with an alternative design. This project aims to ensure they have been able to simplify the implementation process of the applications that are under the blockchain technology. They will make this possible with their easy to use peer model and API.
But they will not stop here as they aim at creating a distributed ledger technology. One that will allow the different organizations within the crypto space to build a robust hardware system, applications, and platforms that will be able to support various business transactions.
