We are excited to announce that the Hyperledger community will be moving its chat channel to Discord from RocketChat.
What is Discord and what are the benefits?
Discord is an easy to use chat platform. Discord lets communities communicate directly via voice, video, or text, and join servers where larger communities can interact together. Discord has topic-based text channels that give an organized way to talk about all the things you love. Discord really fits the needs of Hyperledger’s diverse community to communicate in channels and also connect to other communities on Discord.
If you’re new to Discord, you can learn about its features here.

Why are we moving to Discord?
Hyperledger Foundation set up a Task Force to investigate options for a better chat channel experience for the Hyperledger community. After interviewing and getting feedback from community members, the Task Force determined that Discord as a tool that met the needs of the community. The Hyperledger community was also generally enthusiastic about the user experience Discord provided. The Task Force then proposed moving to Discord to the Technical Steering Committee, who approved the proposal.
What is the timeline for this migration:
- February – March 2022: Join Discord! All communities will be directed to begin their chat channels and start using Hyperledger’s Discord
- March 31, 2022: RocketChat will be archived
