The global, collaborative, open source umbrella project Hyperledger announced the inclusion of 13 new members this week.
This latest batch of companies hail from a wide array of industries including healthcare, finance and information technology.
The Hyperledger project now boasts over 230-member organizations from around the globe. Its aim is to build industry specific decentralized applications (dApps) and operating platforms/systems by creating cross-industry open source blockchains that can be adopted worldwide with relative ease.
Some of the latest general members now part of Hyperledger include: CAREiQ, Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) Pte Ltd, Eden Partners, Equidato Technologies AG/SophiaTX and the IPCHAIN Association.
Furthermore, Hyperledger also welcomes new associate members, Blockchain at Berkeley and Zhejiang Blockchain Technology Application Association.
Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director at Hyperledger, spoke of their rapid expansion:
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 fuelled 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.”
The Hyperledger is a global collaborative project spearheaded by the Linux Foundation. In the past few months, the company has established itself as a leader in innovation by deploying 10 individual business blockchain and distributed ledger technologies.
These technologies are stimulating many ‘Proof-of-Coin’ (PoC) and production deployments across numerous industries worldwide, proving that the blockchain revolution is one that cannot be contained, continually optimizing the ways in which the modern world operates.
