Forbes Blockchain 50: Half of the biggest companies deploying blockchain use Hyperledger

Hyperledger, “the gold standard for corporate blockchain projects,” powers half of the “Forbes Blockchain 50,” according to a new set of articles deep diving into the state of enterprise blockchain.

This week, Forbes took on the challenge of chronicling “the rise of so called ‘enterprise’ blockchain” with the creation of its inaugural Blockchain 50, a list of 50 of the biggest companies deploying DLT technology within their operations. Forbes also captured the blockchain platforms at work in each of the 50 companies on its list. Half of the companies on the list, including Amazon, Cargill, CVS, IBM, Seagate, Visa and more, are using Hyperledger technologies.

The list was accompanied by the in-depth, case study-filled feature “Blockchain Goes to Work,” which welcomes readers to “the brave new world of enterprise blockchain, where corporations are embracing the technology underlying cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and using it to speed up business processes, increase transparency and potentially save billions of dollars.”

Hyperleger has focused exclusively on enterprise blockchain and DLT solutions, applying rigorous standards to how open source blockchain is developed. The recognition that some of the world’s largest organizations are building on Hyperledger is validation for the course set three years ago by Executive Director, Brian Behlendorf, to be the premiere community advancing the commercial adoption of blockchain tech.

The Forbes articles solidified Hyperledger technologies’ position as the de facto infrastructure for enterprise blockchain. Or, as Forbes says, “the gold standard for corporate blockchain projects.”

The transition from possibility to reality is well underway, which makes it more important than ever that we push ahead with a transparent, rigorous community-driven development across all our current and future projects. Our community is conceiving, building and deploying foundational technologies that are forever changing the way global companies, customers and communities interact.
