Today, Hyperledger Foundation, the open, global ecosystem for enterprise-grade blockchain technologies, announced Applied Blockchain, Chainlink Labs, Cheesecake Labs, Digi Yatra Foundation, Intersect, and LayerZero Labs as new members. They join as Hyperledger Foundation kicks off its 7th year at Consensus to be front and center for the celebration of 10 years of decentralizing the future. Hyperledger members, including Applied Blockchain, IntellectEU, Kaleido, and Oracle, are taking the spotlight at the Foundation’s booth (#851) where they will be demonstrating their use of Hyperledger tech across a range of markets and use cases.

Demos will include:

  • Applied Blockchain will demonstrate how Silent Data has been used to add programmable privacy and AML checks to security tokens (ERC-3643)

  • Chainlink Labs will present its latest work in capital markets around its Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP), including a collaboration with Swift and 12+ institutions to enable connectivity between Swift and public/private blockchains, along with a project with ANZ Bank on powering cross-border, cross-chain, and cross-currency tokenized asset settlement

  • Chainyard will be highlighting how the Trust Your Supplier (TYS) platform, powered by Hyperledger Fabric, enhances supplier onboarding and third-party risk management (TPRM) using AI

  • Cheesecake Labs is showcasing a newly built Stellar connector for the Hyperledger Cacti platform and demos of it in action with Real World Assets (RWA) use cases

  • IntellectEU and LayerZero Labs will show a proof-of-concept for cross-chain Delivery vs. Payment (DvP) transactions that allows the orchestration of complete DvP flows directly from back offices using Swift MT messages with settling across two distinct blockchain protocols: private (Hyperledger Besu) and public (Polygon)

  • Oracle will be highlighting its Blockchain Platform based on Hyperledger Fabric running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and Kubernetes. They will showcase various customer blockchain use cases, including digital assets, decentralized identity, track-and-trace, and authenticated provenance for the retail, finance, manufacturing, and government sectors.

Project and community momentum

Hyperledger Foundation introduced its latest project, Hyperledger Identus, a new decentralized identity applications platform. Identus adds another technology to the Hyperledger decentralized trust ecosystem, joining Hyperledger AnonCreds, Aries, and Indy as core identity and credentialing projects. The Hyperledger FireFly community announced the availability of version 1.3 of the recently graduated project. The updates for FireFly, a Web3 Gateway, include tighter integration with Hyperledger Besu to support enterprise-grade tokenization deployments and a Tezos Connector. The Hyperledger Telecom SIG also released a solution brief detailing the Telecom Decentralized Identity Network (TDIDN), a new way to improve identity management using decentralized identifiers (DID) and blockchain.

Hyperledger Foundation also announced that GoLedger and Infosys have completed the requirements to become the newest Hyperledger Certified Service Providers (HCSP), a pre-qualified tier of vetted service providers that have deep experience helping enterprises successfully adopt Hyperledger technology. HCSPs have documented expertise in support, consulting, professional services and training for enterprise deployments of Hyperledger technology. 

“As we gather for another Consensus, it’s a great time to reflect on the evolution of decentralized technologies,” said Daniela Barbosa, Executive Director, Hyperledger Foundation, and General Manager, Blockchain and Identity, at the Linux Foundation. “The Hyperledger ecosystem, which includes 14 projects and more than 50 labs, is powering an ever-expanding range of use cases that include permissioned, permissionless, public, private, and hybrid networks as well as bridges and connectors to support the flow of data and value across chains and identity and credentialing solutions that create shared trust. Our members, including the six that we announced today and the more than dozen that are joining us in our booth, are testament to the broad community supporting our technologies and the decentralized future we are building together.”

Through support from its members, Hyperledger Foundation fosters the development and deployment of enterprise-grade, industry-specific applications, services, and solutions built on open source enterprise blockchain and related technologies. Companies joining the general member community are Applied Blockchain, Chainlink Labs, Cheesecake Labs, Intersect, and LayerZero Labs.

To ensure global contributions and participation from the blockchain community, pre-approved non-profits, open source projects and government entities can join Hyperledger Foundation at no cost as associate members. Digi Yatra Foundation has joined the foundation as an associate member.
