Hyperledger Fabric is a blockchain framework implementation and one of the Hyperledger projects hosted by The Linux Foundation. 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. Hyperledger Fabric leverages container technology to host smart contracts called “chaincode” that comprise the application logic of the system. Hyperledger Fabric was initially contributed by Digital Asset and IBM, as a result of the first hackathon.
As a Linux Foundation project, Hyperledger provides maintainers and their communities direct access to one of the deepest open source brain trusts in the world to help with everything from licensing to governance to release management to ecosystem development. In other words, we let you focus on developing the technology, confident that the legal, technical and organizational infrastructure your project needs for the long run is in place.
Hyperledger leaders bring decades of experience developing and growing transformative open source infrastructure software You and your community will have access to dedicated PR, events and marketing resources to reach the audiences that matter (developers, end users, members) with the right messages. You will be able to plug into our web site and blog, which receive nearly 50,000 unique visitors per month as well as other high-impact promotional programs.
Hyperledger has an extremely active industry conference calendar and project leaders are encouraged to participate. So far, Hyperledger has hosted 8 hackfests, averaging 150 attendees – this is a great way to tap into the existing Hyperledger developer community to improve your project and reach new developers. Hyperledger is also active with its own and other hack-a-thon competitions to draw developer attention to our projects.
