Hyperledger: building open source blockchain for business

Blockchain can do for business what the internet did for communication. Powering that transformation is Hyperledger, hosted by The Linux Foundation, featuring innovators in finance, banking, IoT, supply chains, manufacturing and technology – including IBM. Together, we’re creating open, standardized and enterprise-grade distributed ledger blockchain frameworks and code bases to produce tangible business results.

What is Hyperledger Fabric?

Hyperledger Fabric is the first project to move to active status within the Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger, emerging as the de-facto standard for enterprise blockchain platforms like the IBM Blockchain Platform and others. Through open source and open governance, Hyperledger Fabric features innovative new capabilities hardened for use by businesses so they can usher in a new era of trust, transparency and accountability.


Permissioned network

Establish decentralized trust in a network of known participants rather than a public network with no identity


Confidential transactions

Expose only the data you want to share to the parties you want to share it with


Pluggable architecture

Tailor the blockchain to industry needs with a pluggable architecture rather than a one size fits all approach

Get Started

Easy to Get Started

Program smart contracts in the languages your team works in today instead of learning custom languages and architectures

Hyperledger Fabric driving innovation

Hyperledger Fabric v1.1.0 is now available. Updates include added command references, better samples and tutorials, operational tasks and a new architectural reference for key components and concepts.

Looking forward, Hyperledger Fabric v.1.2.0 will set the groundwork for privacy-preserving asset transfer at scale for enterprise-grade solutions. Capabilities will include new tools for interacting with a business network, improved trusted transaction approval process and Ethereum smart contracts execution.

We're thrilled with the response to the IBM Blockchain Platform Starter Plan, powered by Hyperledger Fabric 1.1.0, and are looking forward to pioneering blockchain as we pave the way for 1.2.0.

—Jerry Cuomo, VP of IBM Blockchain Technology

Collaboration that’s driving business results

Built in the open by a diverse group of 28 different organizations, Hyperledger Fabric is engineered to help accelerate the adoption of distributed ledger technology. Working together, we're helping enterprises achieve desired business outcomes in financial services, food safety, supply chains, insurance, automotive, retail, government, healthcare and many other sectors.
