âHyperledger Global Forum is always an exciting event for our community and the corporate blockchain industry,â said Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger, and Managing Director of Blockchain, Health and Identity at the Linux Foundation. âThis year’s format opened the door to a powerful mix of high-impact speakers and lectures and created the opportunity for a global audience like we’ve never had before. Joining us now is this latest wave New members further strengthen our community as we move on to HGF and underscore the widespread commitment to advancing and implementing Hyperledger technologies. “
Quotes from new members:
âConsenSys Health helps the healthcare industry leverage Ethereum-based solutions for cybersecurity, compliance, privacy, bioethics and identity with ConsenSys deep technical capabilities to advance the healthcare industry,â said declared Heather leigh flannery, Founder and CEO of ConsenSys Health. âConsenSys Health is aligned with the Hyperledger community’s efforts to leverage converging innovations such as blockchain, tokenization, unconscious cryptography, and federated machine learning to advance immediate and long-term public health goals throughout. while preserving individual confidentiality.
âWe are excited to join the Hyperledger community and the Linux Foundation as both share our mission of facilitating blockchain adoption in the enterprise space,â said Guillermo Villanueva, CEO of Extrimian. âExtrimian was born after many years of dealing with the complexity of developing real-world blockchain applications for the enterprise segment. We realized that a part was missing that would not only facilitate the development and operation of applications. decentralized, but also integration with the rest of the technology already available to businesses and governments. Today we offer an integrated, simple and intuitive platform that supports RSK, Etherum and Hyperledger Besu, among others straight out of the box. In the near future, we will add support for Hyperledger Aries, Ursa and further, we will add Fabric and Avalon. We also provide a marketplace that will easily integrate reusable components from our partner ecosystem. The end goal is to have a single API and integrated experience that hides the complexity of managing the growing number of platforms and te chnologies that we have in the blockchain space. “
âAs our blockchain solutions grow and mature, we want the best support available in the industry, and that’s exactly what we’re getting from the Hyperledger community,â said Luke Ledet, CTO of Revelry Labs. âAs we continue to provide enterprise-grade blockchain solutions across a wide range of industries, Hyperledger technologies have allowed us to move forward quickly and confidently in this rapidly changing environment.
âWe are excited to join the Hyperledger community and start working alongside such great minds to build a blockchain ecosystem capable of reshaping the tech landscape,â said Olivier Lombard, CEO of UNA Blockchain. “Una aims to harness emerging technologies in the service of humanity and nature, and to contribute to the decarbonization of the blockchain and automotive sectors.”
