What We Do
Hyperledger Foundation is a non profit organization that brings together all the necessary resources and infrastructure to ensure thriving and stable ecosystems around open source software blockchain projects.
Hyperledger Foundation hosts a number of enterprise-grade blockchain software projects. The projects are conceived and built by the developer community for vendors, end user organizations, service providers, start-ups, academics and others to use to build and deploy blockchain networks or commercial solutions. The Hyperledger Foundation staff is part of a larger Linux Foundation team that has years of experience in providing program management services for open source projects.
All Hyperledger projects follow the same design philosophy:
Complete with APIs
Hyperledger Foundation Goals
Provide a neutral, open community around enterprise blockchain supported by technical and business Governance
Foster the development and adoption of cross-industry platforms powered by distributed ledgers
Educate the public about the market opportunity for business blockchain technology
Why Enterprise Blockchain, Why Hyperledger?
Blockchain solves a core problem: many organizations want to share data in a distributed database, but no single owner will be trusted by every user. Blockchain technologies enable direct transactions in a secure, transparent way, baking trust into systems that operate with the efficiency of a peer-to-peer network.
For enterprises, adopting this technology is making a foundational change in how they conduct business. When used as an enterprise software solution, it enables trust where it didn’t exist before and removes layers and layers of inefficiency. The technologies are building blocks for core, cross industry systems that will only scale in size and complexity as well as in effectiveness and value. Because Hyperledger technologies are open source code bases built with collaborative design and governance, enterprises have embraced them as trusted infrastructure for building blockchain solutions.
