Deutsche Bank joins Hyperledger community

Blockchain consortium Hyperledger has welcomed 16 new organisations into the fold, bringing the total number of new members in 2018 to 67. 

A global collaboration hosted by The Linux Foundation, it now includes more than 235 organisations. The latest general members to join the community are: BlackRidge Technology, Blockdaemon, Chengdu Chiwu Software Technologies, China Systems Holdings, Evernym, Experian, iownit capital and markets, Kakaopay, Lucidity, PokitDok and Thinktecture. They line up alongside Deutsche Bank, which signed on earlier this month.

“As a Premier member, we’re hoping our expertise and global network will help advance open source distributed ledger technologies and allow us to better serve the complex needs of our clients, who look to us to improve their and their trade partners’ financial endeavours,” says Jon Pearson, Head of Deutsche Bank Labs United Kingdom and Ireland.

“The Hyperledger community is on the front lines of putting blockchain into production across numerous industries,” says Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger. “From healthcare to banking to digital identity management, our members are developing both the use cases and the code for distributed ledgers that scale, connect and interoperate. The accelerating growth we are seeing shows the widening footprint of enterprise blockchain and increasing recognition of a community-based approach to advancing the technology and business models.”
