Back to our Developer Showcase Series to learn what developers in the real world are doing with Hyperledger technologies. Next up is Anitha Radhakrishnan, Senior Software Engineer at KrypC Technologies.
Give a bit of background on what you’re working on and how you got into blockchain
I’m working on the development of several blockchain use cases and also on our product, KrypCore, which helps us to deliver various business solutions. We have delivered many supply chain, trade finance and microfinance solutions by implementing using our KrypCore.
KrypCore is a managed service where one can easily manage Hyperledger Fabric networks, chaincode and channel management (supports both 1.4 and 2.x versions).
What Hyperledger frameworks or tools are you using in your projects? Any new developments to share? Can you sum up your experience with Hyperledger?
Hyperledger Fabric is our primary DLT. We also use the Hyperledger Fabric SDK to develop our projects. We have added a DeliverWithPrivateData service in Fabric Go SDK, which delivers blocks with private data (which is available in Node SDK). We also added a function for fetching certain blocks with private data from a peer.
What do you think is most important for Hyperledger to focus on in the next year?
• Focusing on increasing the awareness about how the technology works, which will help to increase the adoption of blockchain technology
• Improving scalability especially for public blockchains
• Developing interoperability with a large number of blockchain networks
• Including blockchain technology in academics
What advice would you offer other technologists or developers interested in getting started working on blockchain?
Hyperledger Docs are a good way to learn the concepts. However, before starting to develop a use case/project, it is better to experiment with the Fabric test network available in GitHub. That is a helpful way to get a solid understanding of basic concepts.
As Hyperledger’s projects continue to mature, what do you see as the most interesting technologies, apps, or use cases coming out as a result?
Central Bank Digital Currency and crypt collectibles (NFT)
What’s the one issue or problem you hope blockchain can solve?
Where do you hope to see Hyperledger and/or blockchain in 5 years?
• Broad adoption by the government for managing various registrations, managing identities and finances
• Wider blockchain education in academic
What is the best piece of developer advice you’ve ever received?
• Learn the basics
• Be clear about what you learn and try implementing it to understand things better
• Explore new technologies
What technology could you not live without?
