“While July is traditionally a quiet month, we’ve been quite busy hitting some key community and technology milestones,” says Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger. “Heading into the second half of the year, we are focused on continuing our growth and advancing our open source, multiple framework approach to meet the increasingly diverse applications for blockchain technology. As we plan for the Hyperledger Global Forum, we will be calling on these new members and the entire ecosystem to keep driving the vision and technology forward to scale to meet the global demand for blockchain-powered businesses.”
“Coil is building a better business model for the web and believes this can only be achieved through open standards,” says Stefan Thomas, Coil founder. “It was an easy decision to join Hyperledger in order to support the work on open source blockchain solutions. We’re directly contributing to Hyperledger Quilt and see a lot of synergy between the scalable private blockchains developed at Hyperledger and Codius, our open, decentralised computing platform.”
“We are happy to be working with the Hyperledger community and contributing to the blockchain revolution,” comments Nuno Correia, CEO of UTRUST. “Joining Hyperledger will allow us to explore and develop innovative approaches to the payment sector. For example, we aim to shift to a decentralised dispute and mediation model for when something goes wrong with a purchase. We want to make sure all of our clients have access to the most transparent and safest way of buying with cryptocurrencies.”
