Hyperledger Fabric is one of the most popular blockchain framework which is hosted by the Linux Foundation. As a basis for the development of applications or solutions with a modular architecture, Hyperledger Fabric offers plug - and - play components such as consensus and membership services. Ethereum is a decentralized platform running smart contracts, applications running exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or interference from third parties. These apps are based on a custom built blockchain, an enormously powerful global shared infrastructure that can change value and represent property ownership. This study deals with comparison of Hyperledger Fabric and Ethereum platforms while covering various factors like architecture, performance, use cases, ease of algorithm etc.
