We are Hyperledger Fabric Developers!
The Hyperledger Foundation is an industry association tasked with developing enterprise managed blockchain solutions. That means that unlike protocols like Bitcoin or Ethereum, Hyperledger projects are designed for traditional businesses trying to improve internal data integrity, collaboration and bring IT cost down in the long run. The first project to emerge from the Foundation is Hyperledger Fabric, a managed blockchain protocol that brings decentralisation and cryptographic improvements to systems that power businesses, large and small.
Hyperledger is an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. It is a global collaboration, hosted by The Linux Foundation, including leaders in finance, banking, Internet of Things, supply chains, manufacturing and Technology.
Why Create Hyperledger?
Not since the Web itself has a technology promised broader and more fundamental revolution than blockchain technology. A blockchain is a peer-to-peer distributed ledger forged by consensus, combined with a system for “smart contracts” and other assistive technologies. Together these can be used to build a new generation of transactional applications that establishes trust, accountability and transparency at their core, while streamlining business processes and legal constraints.
Think of it as an operating system for marketplaces, data-sharing networks, micro-currencies, and decentralized digital communities. It has the potential to vastly reduce the cost and complexity of getting things done in the real world.
Only an Open Source, collaborative software development approach can ensure the transparency, longevity, interoperability and support required to bring blockchain technologies forward to mainstream commercial adoption. That is what Hyperledger is about – communities of software developers building blockchain frameworks and platforms.
Blockchain allows multiple different parties to securely interact with the same universal source of truth
Streamlined settlement, improved liquidity, increased transparency and new products/markets
Unite disparate processes, increase data flow and liquidity, reduce costs and improve patient experience and outcomes
Track parts and service provenance, ensure authenticity of goods, block counterfeits, reduce conflicts
