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
- 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
- Hyperledger Indy v1.6.83, 2019 -
Indy is a Hyperledger project for supporting independent identity on
- 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 â€œas-a-serviceâ€ 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
- 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
- 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.
