Home Open Source Open-source blockchain framework releases version 1.0

An open-source blockchain framework implementation known as Hyperledger Fabric, hosted by The Linux Foundation, has released version 1.0 for developing blockchain applications, products or solutions.

The modular architecture of Hyperledger Fabric can be added to, using components such as consensus and membership services.

The framework uses container technology which hosts smart contracts known as "chaincode" that make up the system's application logic.

The project is led by Brian Behlendorf, the person who led the initial development of the Apache webserver software.

“Hyperledger Fabric 1.0 is a true milestone for our community,” said Behlendorf who is executive director of Hyperledger. “After over a year of public collaboration, testing, and validation in the form of POCs and pilots, consumers and vendors of technology based on Hyperledger Fabric can now advance to production deployment and operations."

Engineers from Arxan, Cloudsoft, CLS, d20 Technical Services, The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation, Digital Asset, Fujitsu, GE, Gemalto, HACERA, Hitachi, Huawei Technologies, Hyperchain, ImpactChoice, IT People, Knoldus, The Linux Foundation, Netease, Passkit, State Street Bank, SecureKey, IBM, SAP, Thoughtworks and Wanda Group, plus 35 individuals were involved, making a total of 159 developers who contributed to Hyperledger Fabric.

The parent project, Hyperledger, will be seeking to create common distributed ledger technology so that organisations can build and run industry-specific applications, platforms and hardware systems to support individual business transactions.

There are now more than 145 project members, spanning various industries including finance, healthcare, the Internet of Things, credit card services, supply chain and aeronautics.
