Hyperledger, an open source collaborative effort created by The Linux Foundation to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies, has added nine new members to the consortium.

Founded in 2015, Hyperledger allows organizations to create robust, industry-specific applications, platforms and hardware systems to support their individual business transactions by offering enterprise-grade, open source distributed ledger frameworks and code bases. The consortium has a total of 12 projects, including Hyperledger Fabric v1.4 LTS, the first long term support version of the framework, Hyperledger Ursa, ashared cryptography library, and Hyperledger Grid, a project to help build and deliver supply chain solutions.

The latest general members to join the consortium are BTS Digital LLP, Exactpro Systems Limited, Jitsuin, Lares Blockchain, Myndshft, Omnigate, Poste Italiane, ReGov Technology Sdn. Bhd., and Wrapious Marketing Co Ltd.

Exactpro, which specializes in quality assurance services and related software development, said that they firmly believe their Hyperledger and The Linux Foundation memberships will provide them with access to community resources that will help them deliver more profound testing of blockchain-based software systems to their clients.

“Being a firm strategically focused on providing the highest level QA services for mission-critical market infrastructures, Exactpro understands the important role of this new technology and strives to enhance our expertise in this area through collaboration with leading blockchain consortia such as Hyperledger,” said Maxim Rudovsky, CTO, Exactpro.

“We wrapped up 2018 with a successful and exciting Hyperledger Global Forum,” said Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger. “This first worldwide meeting of the Hyperledger community underscored the growing pace of development and deployment of blockchain in general and our tools and technologies in particular. We are seeing more signs of this accelerating pace of maturation and adoption here in early 2019. We welcome these newest members and look forward to their help in driving this growth.”
