Founded in 2015, Hyperledger is an open source collaborative effort that aims to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. It allows organizations to create robust, 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 BTS Digital LLP, Exactpro Systems Limited, Jitsuin, Lares Blockchain, Myndshft, Omnigate, Poste Italiane, ReGov Technology Sdn. Bhd., and Wrapious Marketing Co Ltd.
Mirko Mischiatti, Chief Information Officer, Poste Italiane – the Italian postal service provider, said that blockchain technology is becoming the foundation for establishing a distributed, transparent and cross-industry interoperable ecosystem.
"Poste Italiane wants to actively participate in this new and exciting community by becoming a member of Hyperledger in order to continue its path for the innovation and modernization of financial, logistic and insurance industries. We really look forward to working with other members and making our effort to contribute for the enhancement of blockchain technology,” Mischiatti said.
Hyperledger has delivered some key technology updates and now has a total of 12 projects. In December, it announced a shared cryptography library called ‘Ursa’ and, more recently, unveiled new project, called Hyperledger Grid, that aims to help build and deliver supply chain solutions.
"We wrapped up 2018 with a successful and exciting Hyperledger Global Forum," said Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger. "This first worldwide meeting of the Hyperledger community underscored the growing pace of development and deployment of blockchain in general and our tools and technologies in particular. We are seeing more signs of this accelerating pace of maturation and adoption here in early 2019."
