More than 270 organizations are now part of Hyperledger’s open-source distributed ledger frameworks and tools.

   Hyperledger, an open source collaborative effort to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies, announced Wednesday that 14 new members have joined its global community. More than 270 organizations now are contributing to the growth of Hyperledgers’ open-source distributed ledger frameworks and tools.
   The latest general members to join the community are BetaBlocks, Blockchain Educators, Cardstack, Constellation Labs, Elemential Labs, FedEx, Honeywell International Inc., KoreConX, Northstar Venture Technologies, Peer Ledger, Syncsort and Wanchain.
   “We believe that blockchain has big implications in supply chain, transportation and logistics,” said Kevin Humphries, senior vice president of  IT for FedEx Services. “We are excited for the opportunity to collaborate with the Hyperledger community as we continue to explore the applications and help set the standards for wide-scale blockchain adoption in our industry and others.”
   Hyperledger is a multi-project, multi-stakeholder effort that includes 10 business blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. Hyperledger said it enables organizations to build robust, industry-specific applications, platforms and hardware systems to support their individual business transactions by creating enterprise-grade, open-source distributed ledger frameworks and code bases. 
   “Our community ranges from technology giants and industry leaders to startups, service providers and academics,” said Brian Behlendorf, executive director of Hyperledger. “We are gaining traction around the world in market segments from finance to healthcare and government to logistics. This growth and diversity is a signal of the increasing recognition of the strategic value of enterprise blockchain and commitment to the adoption and development of open-source frameworks to drive new business models.”
