The Hyperledger Foundation hosts a global community of people who are creating enterprise-grade blockchain software projects.  Developers are working on a variety of efforts that range in maturity from production-ready to experimental and that cover a broad set of use cases. If you’d like to learn more about how to use Hyperledger projects in your solutions, check out our Getting Started guide.

Featured Projects

These are the most mature projects in the Hyperledger community that are being used in production systems today.  Each of these projects has an active group of community members that you are welcome to engage with.

Hyperledger Besu is an Ethereum client designed to be enterprise-friendly for both public and private permissioned network use cases. It can also be run on test networks such as Rinkeby, Ropsten, and Görli. Hyperledger Besu includes several consensus algorithms including PoW, and PoA (IBFT, IBFT 2.0, Etherhash, and Clique). Its comprehensive permissioning schemes are designed specifically for use in a consortium environment.

Hyperledger Fabric is intended as a foundation for developing applications or solutions with a modular architecture. Hyperledger Fabric allows components, such as consensus and membership services, to be plug-and-play. Its modular and versatile design satisfies a broad range of industry use cases. It offers a unique approach to consensus that enables performance at scale while preserving privacy.

Hyperledger Indy Logo

Hyperledger Indy provides tools, libraries, and reusable components for providing digital identities rooted on blockchains or other distributed ledgers so that they are interoperable across administrative domains, applications, and any other silo. Indy is interoperable with other blockchains or can be used standalone powering the decentralization of identity.

Hyperledger Sawtooth offers a flexible and modular architecture separates the core system from the application domain, so smart contracts can specify the business rules for applications without needing to know the underlying design of the core system. Hyperledger Sawtooth supports a variety of consensus algorithms, including Practical Byzantine Fault Tolerance (PBFT) and Proof of Elapsed Time (PoET)
