Hyperledger: An open source community focused on the DeFi realm

This first day of March, we will start with our series of publications on the interesting open technological field of "DeFi", and specifically about "Hyperledger".

Yes, "Hyperledger" is one of many Open source communities driven by Linux Foundation, which is characterized by being focused on the field "DeFi", since it revolves around a Blockchain Technology Project (Blockchain) and at Distributed Ledger Technology (Distributed Ledger Technology / DLT).

DeFi: Decentralized Finance, Open Source Financial Ecosystem

DeFi: Decentralized Finance, Open Source Financial Ecosystem

Before entering the topic, as usual we will recommend that at the end of reading this post explore and read the following previous publications related to the topic, if you want deepen and broaden The topic of today:

"DeFi: Abbreviation for «Decentralized Finance». DeFi is a concept and / or technology that encompasses the use of a broad category of DApps (Decentralized Applications) whose objective is to provide financial services backed by a blockchain, without intermediaries, so that anyone with an Internet connection can take part."

What is Hyperledger?

According to your own official website in Spanish, "Hyperledger" It is described as:

"An open source community focused on the development of a set of frameworks, tools and libraries, in order to be used in blockchain solutions in the business sector. It serves as a neutral home for various frameworks related to decentralized technologies, including Hyperledger Fabric, Sawtooth, Indy, as well as tools like Hyperledger Caliper and libraries like Hyperledger Ursa."

While, in clearer and more complementary words, we can describe "Hyperledger" As follows:

"An Open Source Community focused on the DeFi field, which in turn revolves around a Blockchain and DLT Technology Project promoted by the Linux Foundation, together with a huge and varied group of large technology companies that are interested in applying this technology. in its different production spaces, and thus improve the security and confidence of its processes."

Hyperledger: Projects

How does the Hyperledger Community work?

To function as a productive and successful global collaborative Community, made up of leaders (individuals, groups, institutions and companies) from the fields of Finance and Banking, the Internet of Things, and Supply Chains, Manufacturing and Technology, "Hyperledger" is built and managed under technical governance and open collaboration, where individual developers, service and solution providers, government associations, corporate members and end users are invited to participate in the development and promotion of these rules-changing technologies. current world, in technological and financial matters.

Like the Linux Foundation, "Hyperledger" has a modular approach to hosting projects. The greenhouse of "Hyperledger" houses Blockchain projects developing business, from Hyperledger Labs (seed) up to stable code ready for production (fruition). And in it, everyone is invited to contribute to it, collectively advancing the objectives of the DLT Industry and at Smart Contracts.

Existing projects

As we can see in the image immediately above, there are many Blockchain and DLT projects ongoing in the Community of "Hyperledger". Later, we will delve into some of these open source technology projects. However, it is worth highlighting one of the best known and most important, called "Hyperledger Fabric", which can be briefly described as follows:

"Hyperledger Fabric is an open source, enterprise-grade Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) platform, designed for use in business contexts, that offers some key differentiation capabilities over other popular Blockchain or Distributed Ledger platforms. Fabric is the first distributed ledger platform to support smart contracts created in general-purpose programming languages ​​such as Java, Go, and Node.js, rather than restricted domain-specific languages ​​(DSL). This means that most companies already have the necessary skills to develop smart contracts and no additional training is needed to learn a new language or DSL." What is Hyperledger Fabric?

Generic image for article conclusions


We hope this "useful little post" about «Hyperledger», which is an open source Community focused on the DeFi field, which in turn, revolves around a Blockchain Technology Project and DLT driven by Linux Foundation; is of great interest and utility, for the entire «Comunidad de Software Libre y Código Abierto» and of great contribution to the diffusion of the wonderful, gigantic and growing ecosystem of applications of «GNU/Linux».
