Hyperledger Recap

Hyperledger is an umbrella project of open-source blockchains and related tools. Our key takeaways from the event include:

  • Projects of all sorts have utilized the open-source community. For example, Hyperledger highlighted companies in Finance, Central Bank Digital Currencies, Banking, Environment, and Supply Chain Management. All of which make use of blockchain technologies and Hyperledger.
  • Hyperledger is a vast project with thriving communities, and if anyone wanted to experience with open source projects, they were sure to find a place where their talents would be needed.
  • Hyperledger has Mentorship and Internship pathways to connect with other professionals and build more experience. Read more here.
