Hyperledger Welcomes 10 New Members, Including EDF and JD Digits

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 10, 2020 — Hyperledger, an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies, today announced the latest line-up of new members to join its enterprise blockchain community. Ten new members, including BSOS, EDF and JD Digits Technology Holding Co., Ltd., have joined bringing added diversity to the multi-venture, multi-stakeholder effort hosted at the Linux Foundation.

In addition, Hyperledger announced it has signed a total of 20 Hyperledger Certified Service Providers (HCSPs) as BSOS and Hitachi have now completed the certification requirements. Hyperledger has also added to its growing case study library with detailed reports on DLT Labs’ freight invoice management solution in use by Walmart Canada, LedgerDomain‘s pharmaceutical supply chain deployment and the openIDL blockchain platform for secure data sharing within the insurance industry. The line-up of case studies is a good preview of some of the content that will be part of the next Hyperledger Global Forum, which will take place in Q2 of 2021.

This continued momentum comes as Hyperledger marks its coming 5th anniversary with its Five Years of Hyperledger panel series. As the culmination of the series, Hyperledger is also hosting a community-wide networking session. The networking session, slated for December 17 at 1:00 pm EST, will be a chance for networking and discussion organized around key themes that will shape the next five years of enterprise blockchain.

“While it is gratifying to look back at how the Hyperledger community has grown and evolved, it’s even more compelling to think about the technologies and opportunities that lie ahead,” said Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger. “Maturing technologies, business models and markets are making blockchain an increasingly strategic platform across a number of industries. Our community is at the forefront for developing and deploying enterprise blockchain technology that delivers meaningful results, and this latest line-up of new members and service providers will now be part of the effort to drive the market forward.”

Hyperledger allows organizations to create solid, industry-specific applications, platforms and hardware systems to support their individual business transactions by offering enterprise-grade, open source distributed ledger frameworks, libraries and tools. General members joining the community are BSOS, EDF, JD Digits Technology Holding Co., Ltd., OCTO Technology, Red Date Technology, Shanghai Tianji Network Co., Ltd., Troon Technologies and WISeKey.

Hyperledger supports an open community that values the contributions and participation from various entities. As such, pre-approved non-profits, open source projects and government entities can join Hyperledger at no cost as associate members. Associate members joining this month include Saintgits College of Engineering and XPRIZE.
