Weekend Update: This Week’s Round-up of Remote Blockchain Learning Resources

By November 13, 2020 Blog, Weekend Update

Welcome to the Weekend Update. Our goal with this weekly post is to share quick updates about online education, networking and collaboration opportunities and resources for the open source enterprise blockchain community. 

If you have suggestions for resources or events that we should spotlight in a future Weekend Update, let us know here using #HLWeekendUpdate. 

Five Years of Hyperledger

Hyperledger first launched in December 2015 with founding members IBM, J.P. Morgan, Accenture and DTCC, among several others. Fast forward to today and, 16 projects later, Hyperledger is one of the fastest growing projects at the Linux Foundation.

We have a special lineup of activities, events, and news to help us recognize five years of Hyperledger that kicks off on November 16 and will last through mid December. Five weeks, five discussions, gathering the brightest in our community to address and debate some of the biggest opportunities, challenges, and issues facing enterprise blockchain.

Hyperledger Telecom Special Interest Group Guest Speaker: Nima Afraz, CONNECT Center, Trinity College Dublin

Dial into the Telecom SIG meeting to learn more about Decentralized 5G Marketplaces based on Hyperledger Fabric. The fifth generation of cellular networks or 5G promises revolutionary improvements compared to the previous generation that reaches beyond merely multiplying the bandwidth and reducing latency. 5G is expected to enable a wide range of new internet-based services such as vehicular communications and Smart City infrastructure that, in addition to connectivity, require on-demand fine-grained infrastructure and resource access to operate. This talk will cover how Hyperledger Fabric could facilitate the implementation of a distributed marketplace for 5G network infrastructure sharing that does not rely on a central source of trust.

For more information on the meeting, which is Thursday, November 19, 2020, at 9AM PST, go here.

Recent Research – Deep Dive into Blockchain Accountability

For an academic analysis of Hyperledger Fabric’s accountability, read the paper Accountability in a Permissioned Blockchain: Formal Analysis of Hyperledger Fabric published by researchers from the Institute of Information Security at University of Stuttgart in Germany.
