In another step towards driving cross-industry cooperation in the development and use of blockchain technologies, Hyperledger has added two new groups to its growing list of Special Interest Groups (SIG). These two new groups, the Hyperledger Social Impact SIG and the Hyperledger Trade Finance SIG, join Healthcare and Public Sector focused SIGs.
SIGs gather community members from an industry segment to work on domain-specific problems and create an environment for open discussion, document co-creation and solution proposals. SIGs help specific vertical markets in their efforts to address problems specific to that particular community.
The Hyperledger Social Impact Special Interest Group
The Hyperledger Social Impact SIG is primarily focused on serving as a platform for exchanging ideas and exploration of ways
About | Hyperledger |
Hyperledger is an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. It is a global collaboration, hosted by The Linux Foundation, including leaders in finance, banking, Internet of Things, supply chains, manufacturing and Technology.
Think of it as an operating system for marketplaces, data-sharing networks, micro-currencies, and decentralized digital communities. It has the potential to vastly reduce the cost and complexity of getting things done in the real world.
Only an Open Source, collaborative software development approach can ensure the transparency, longevity, interoperability and support required to bring blockchain technologies forward to mainstream commercial adoption. That is what Hyperledger is about – communities of software developers building blockchain frameworks and platforms.
