Speaking about the latest additions to the program, Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director at Hyperledger, added:
“We are entering a very exciting time in Hyperledger’s evolution, as more and more of these technologies are being deployed in various production settings. The size and scale of our membership and our technologies has fueled rapid innovation and, now, increasing application across industries and geographies. Our newest members will play a key role in feeding that growth, helping bring blockchain and distributed ledger technologies to the core of business, government and consumer transactions.”
Hyperledger added that associate members joining this month include Blockchain at Berkeley and Zhejiang Blockchain Technology Application Association.
