Hyperledger: An open governed community for enterprise blockchain
The Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Project advances blockchain technology as an enterprise-class, cross-industry open standard for distributed ledgers that can transform the way business transactions are conducted globally.
Hyperledger is an openly governed community hosted by The Linux Foundation to create an open, standardized, and enterprise-grade distributed ledger framework and code base. It has become a way of organizing open source blockchain projects.
Hyperledger Fabric is an open source, modular, multi-channel transaction network built and maintained by the Hyperledger community. While leveraging open source best practices, Hyperledger Fabric enables confidentiality and scalability in business environments.
Hyperledger Fabric establishes trust, transparency, and accountability
Collectively defined membership and access rights within your business network.
Gives businesses the flexibility and security to make transactions visible to select parties with the correct encryption keys.
Does not require mining and expensive computations to assure transactions.
Leverage the embedded logic in smart contracts to automate business processes across your network

See how it works
Many companies are working together to build an open blockchain fabric that can support production business networks — testing interactions between applications and secure blockchain networks for use cases including supply chain, capital markets, manufacturing, and healthcare.
