Hyperledger blockchain project announces new project to build supply chain solutions
Wed, 23 Jan 2019, 12:07 pm UTC
Called Hyperledger Grid, the project seeks to accelerate the development of blockchain-based solutions to cross-industry supply chain problems. Hyperledger explained:
“Hyperledger Grid is a framework. It’s not a blockchain and it’s not an application. Grid is an ecosystem of technologies, frameworks, and libraries that work together, letting application developers make the choice as to which components are most appropriate for their industry or market model.”
Currently in incubation, Grid intends to demonstrate authentic and practical ways of combining components from the Hyperledger stack into a single, effective business solution. It includes a set of libraries, data models, and software development kits (SDKs) to accelerate development for supply chain smart contracts and client interfaces.
“As an example, supply chain use cases are typically anchoring on industry standard/adopted data standards. Implementing those data models / standards in open ways via this project will lower the barrier for people to build apps using those standards,” Hyperledger Grid Proposal states.
Primary contributors to the project include Cargill, Intel and Bitwise IO. Hyperledger said that endorsements and/or contributions are in flight from several other organizations.
