Hyperledger was founded by Linux Foundation in 2015 to develop blockchain technology. Hyperledger Fabric project is being developed with the active involvement of IBM company, which contributed most of the code from its own developments within IBM Blockchain.
Hyperledger Fabric is a platform (written in GO programming language) for creating distributed data storage systems based on a modular architecture that provides a high degree of confidentiality, fault tolerance, flexibility and scalability.
Hyperledger Fabric should be the starting point for development of corporate blockchain solutions that will be created on the basis of tested, open source code.
At the core of Hyperledger is the expectation that soon there will be a lot of blockchain networks, each of which will solve its own problem. Despite the high level of independence, Hyperledger assumes the availability of address communication, which will allow transactions of one network to detect and use transactions and chain codes (smart contracts) of other networks.
Hyperledger Fabric differs from other blockchain systems in that it is “private and controlled”. Unlike open systems that allow unidentified individuals to participate in the network (for example, PoW consensus building mechanism in Bitcoin), Hyperledger Fabric blockchain participants have to register and receive a certificate. In the future, the level of access to individual blockchain structures can be configured by analyzing identifiers. For example, individual groups of members can create channels that will be a separate transaction register that is accessible only to them.
In connection with the above changes, the overall rating of the project has changed from 44 points out of 46 — 95.6% to 50 points out of 54 — 92.59%.Comments system Cackle
