Type: Distributed ledger software

Hyperledger Burrow is a complete single-binary blockchain distribution focussed on simplicity, speed, and developer ergonomics. It supports both EVM and WASM based smart contracts and uses BFT consensus via the Tendermint algorithm. It has a sophisticated event system and can maintain a relational database mapping of on-chain data. Governance and permissioning is built in and can be amended by on-chain proposal transactions. It is optimised for public permissioned proof-of-stake use cases but can also be used for private/consortium networks.
