The Hyperledger Project
The Hyperledger Project is a Linux Foundation initiative to develop an open source ecosystem of blockchain development. The Linux Foundation aims to create an environment in which communities of software developers and companies meet and coordinate to build blockchain frameworks. Hyperledger itself is not another cryptocurrency, but rather an open hub for enterprise-grade blockchain projects to incubate and mature through all stages of development and commercialization. In this chapter, we talk about the current state of the Hyperledger Project, with a focus on the currently incubating projects, a summary of the project scope being implemented, and a review of the comprehensive set of technologies involved in creating an open source enterprise-grade blockchain.
