A

Hyperledger is an open source project for developing blockchain-based application frameworks and tools.

Currently, Hyperledger is working on the following frameworks:

  • Hyperledger Burrow v.0.21.0, 2019 - Hyperledger Burrow is a blockchain client including a built-to-specification Ethereum Virtual Machine. Contributed by Monax and sponsored by Monax and Intel.
  • Hyperledger Fabric v1.4.0, January 9, 2019 - A permissioned blockchain infrastructure, originally contributed by IBM and Digital Asset, providing a modular architecture with a delineation of roles between the nodes in the infrastructure, execution of Smart Contracts and configurable consensus and membership services.
  • Hyperledger Grid, 2019 - Hyperledger Grid is a framework to accelerate the development of ledger-based solutions for all types of cross-industry supply chain scenarios.
  • Hyperledger Indy v1.6.83, 2019 - Indy is a Hyperledger project for supporting independent identity on distributed ledgers.
  • Hyperledger Iroha v2.0.1, 2019 - Hyperledger Iroha was written from scratch in C++, with an emphasis on supporting mobile applications. Contributed by Soramitsu, a Japanese blockchain fintech company, in 2016.
  • Hyperledger Sawtooth v1.2.1, 2018 - Hyperledger Sawtooth, originally contributed by Intel, includes a dynamic consensus feature enabling hot swapping consensus algorithms in a running network.

Currently, Hyperledger is working on the following tools:

  • Hyperledger Caliper - A blockchain benchmark tool, which allows users to measure the performance of a specific blockchain implementation with a set of predefined use cases.
  • Hyperledger Cello - A blockchain deployment tool to bring the on-demand “as-a-service” deployment model to the blockchain ecosystem to reduce the effort required for creating, managing and terminating blockchains.
  • Hyperledger Composer - A blockchain collaboration tool for building blockchain business networks, accelerating the development of smart contracts and their deployment across a distributed ledger.
  • Hyperledger Explorer - A blockchain administration tool to view, invoke, deploy or query blocks, transactions and associated data, network information, chain codes and transaction families, as well as any other relevant information stored in the ledger.
  • Hyperledger Quilt - A blockchain payment tool to offer interoperability between ledger systems by implementing ILP, which is primarily a payments protocol and is designed to transfer value across distributed ledgers and non-distributed ledgers.
  • Hyperledger Ursa - A shared cryptographic library that would enable people (and projects) to avoid duplicating other cryptographic work and hopefully increase security in the process.
