Hyperledger Project, a collaborative cross-industry effort created to advance blockchain technology, announced on Wednesday seven additional members to the project. The latest members include CollectorIQ Inc., Korea Exchange, Shanghai Onechain Information Technology, Shenzhen Forms Syntron Information, The State of Illinois, The Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) and 1worldblockchain.
“This is a very exciting time with world class global organizations joining Hyperledger nearly every week. The blockchain technology community still has many challenges to solve, and many different possible approaches to solving them. Hyperledger’s open collaboration is key to fostering this growing community and is fundamentally important to getting innovative ideas into production-quality code this year.”
As previously reported, the Hyperledger project, which is hosted by the Linux Foundation, seeks to enable organizations to build robust, industry-specific applications, platforms, and hardware systems to support their individual business transactions by creating an enterprise-grade, open source distributed ledger framework and code base.
