Hyperledger collaborative rolls out 1st production-ready blockchain code

Hyperledger — a collaborative cross-industry effort hosted by The Linux Foundation to advance blockchain — launched Hyperledger Fabric 1.0, a blockchain code, July 11.

The collaborative, which boasts more than 145 members, aims to create common distributed ledger technology for organizations to leverage industry-specific blockchain applications. Its members represent industries such as finance, healthcare and aeronautics.

Hyperledger Fabric is the collaborative's first production-ready blockchain code, which organizations can use as a foundation to develop individual blockchain applications. The blockchain code became publicly available after one year of incubation. In total, 159 engineers contributed to Hyperledger Fabric.

"Hyperledger Fabric 1.0 is a true milestone for our community," said Brian Behlendorf, executive director of Hyperledger. "After over a year of public collaboration, testing and validation … consumers and vendors of technology based on Hyperledger Fabric can now advance to production deployment and operations."
