Hyperledger Project, the collaborative cross-industry effort created to advance blockchain technology, has announced that eight new members have joined the project to help create an open standard for distributed ledgers for a new generation of transactional applications. Last month, Hyperledger announced it reached 100 active members in under one year, an important milestone for the open source project, hosted by The Linux Foundation.
Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director of Hyperledger, said: “This year has been full of growth for the project. Not only did we exceed 100 members, Hyperledger met significant development milestones thanks to the community’s hard work. As 2016 was a year of exploration, R&D and prototyping, we’re excited for 2017 to be the year we start to see case studies of the technology in production environments.”
