IBM, DAH Propose Blockchain Code Merger as Hyperledger Project Code Foundation
The distributed ledger code bases of IBM and Digital Asset Holdings (DAH) have been put forward for merger by the two companies according to proposal sponsored by two members of the Hyperledger Project’s Technical Steering Committee. Those two TSC members are Tamás Blummer, the Chief Ledger Architect at DAH, and Christopher Ferris, IBM Distinguished Engineer and CTO of IBM Open Technology.
The goal of their the merged code base incubation proposal is to formally evaluate the proposed code base as a foundation for the Hyperledger Project.
The move will form a merged repository of the IBM and DAH contributions based on a successful experiment implemented at a face-to-face Hyperledger hackathon hosted by JPMorgan in New York City last week, and advance that base to the point of formal evaluation.
