Hyperledger 8

A Celebration of Building Better Together

February 14th 7am PST / 10AM EST

As Hyperledger Foundation celebrates its 8th anniversary, we reflect on a journey marked by groundbreaking achievements and collaborative success in the world of blockchain and DLT technology. Over these years, Hyperledger Foundation has not just been a part of the blockchain revolution; it has been at its forefront, driving collaboration, and a shared vision for a decentralized future. 

This year, we commemorate our journey under the theme "Hyperledger 8: A Celebration of Building Better Together." Our celebration centers around the impact Hyperledger Foundation has had on the market, resonating with the symbolic significance of the number 8 in various cultures. In Pythagorean numerology, 8 represents victory, prosperity, and overcoming challenges. It's seen as a harbinger of wealth and fortune in Chinese and other Asian traditions, embodying the idea of flourishing and expansion.
