The open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies, Hyperledger has announced that 10 new organizations have joined the project. The project also announced the availability of Hyperledger Fabric 1.0, the consortium’s first production ready blockchain framework announced last month. Hyperledger incubates several business blockchain and distributed ledger technologies including Hyperledger Sawtooth, Hyperledger Iroha and Hyperledger Indy, amongst others.
Executive Director of Hyperledger, Brian Behlendorf remarked: “Welcoming this many new members from all over the world in various industries is great to see. The added support comes at a perfect time, with the recent launch of Hyperledger Fabric 1.0 and the goal of working together as a community to reach and promote production deployments of the technology this year. These new members will be advantageous in our efforts in building open blockchain software and pushing more Hyperledger projects to 1.0.”
