Hyperledger Foundation Announces Six New Members; Unveils Dynamic DLT Landscape
Line-up of Members Set to Share Deployment Stories at Consensus; New Associate Members
Underscore European Market Acceleration
SAN FRANCISCO and AUSTIN (April 25, 2023) – Today, Hyperledger Foundation, the open, global ecosystem for enterprise-grade blockchain technologies, announced its latest line-up of new members. GoLedger, Senofi Inc and Spydra have joined as general members while Digital Euro Association, Digital Pound Foundation and EBA (European Blockchain Association) have signed on as associate members.
Spydra will be one of more than a dozen Hyperledger Foundation members showcasing their use of Hyperledger technologies at Consensus 2023 in booth 312. Others include Alastria, Casper Labs, Chainyard, Filecoin Foundation, IBM, IADB, IntellectEU, Instant Inc, Kaleido, KrypC Technologies, SIMBA Chain, SORAMITSU, Tassets and Zeeve.
New associate members Digital Euro Association, Digital Pound Foundation and EBA will be taking part in a May 10 webinar on Blockchain in Europe: Advancements, Opportunities and Challenges. This two-part discussion will focus first on the work those organizations are doing to drive blockchain technology adoption across Europe and then shift to implementations by Alastria and EBSI.
In addition, Hyperledger Foundation is unveiling a dynamic DLT Landscape, a living segmentation of the evolving blockchain and, more broadly, distributed ledger technology (DLT) space. The landscape was created by Csilla Zsigri, Chief Strategy Officer at BTP, to track the growing complexity of this emerging market, and, in particular, all the innovation happening outside the core DLT development area. BTP has now contributed it to Hyperledger Foundation as a market resource. This landscape both reflects and deciphers the complexity of today’s vendor landscape. The DLT Landscape includes all the Hyperledger Foundation projects – graduated and incubating – and places them in the broader market context.
“We are contributing the DLT Landscape to the Hyperledger Foundation because we believe that it will help put all Hyperledger projects in context,” said Zsigri. “By adopting it, the Hyperledger Foundation will be able to provide a better understanding of the broader market, as well as where specific Hyperledger projects fit.”
As part of the ongoing effort to educate the market on the impact of technologies built by its communities, Hyperledger Foundation also continues to expand its case study library. The most recent additions detail Fujitsu’s work to develop a Hyperledger Fabric-Powered exchange for plant-sourced water recovered by Botanical Water Technologies and the award-winning taXchain solution KrypC built to streamline EU tax forms using Hyperledger Fabric.
“It’s clearer than ever that the enterprise blockchain ecosystem is accelerating in terms of both technology and adoption,” said Daniela Barbosa, Executive Director, Hyperledger Foundation, and General Manager Blockchain and Identity at the Linux Foundation. “There is an increasingly robust landscape of technologies powering deployments with Hyperledger projects front and center in innovative developments and implementations around the world. As shown by the line-up of companies sharing their stories in our Consensus booth, our members are leading the charge in this market. Our newest members are jumping in quickly to help us keep advancing widespread development and adoption of open source blockchain technologies.”
New General Member quotes:
