Hyperledger Project, a collaborative cross-industry effort created to advance blockchain technology, has announced that Airbus has joined as a Premier member of the project. As a Premier member, Airbus will actively contribute to the development of the project’s mission to create an enterprise grade, open source distributed ledger technology.
Brian Behlendorf, Hyperledger Executive Director, remarked: “It’s very gratifying to see leading organizations like Airbus join the project, as it shows the immense interest in blockchain technology and that it has the potential to make an impact beyond just the typical financial and healthcare applications. A key factor to the project’s success will be member expertise and guidance, and as such, I look forward to collaborating with the bright team at Airbus to drive this technology forward.”
The Hyperledger Project aims to create common distributed ledger technology that enables organizations to build and run robust, industry-specific applications, platforms and hardware systems to support their individual business transactions. By creating a cross-industry open standard for distributed ledgers, any digital exchange with value can securely and cost-effectively be tracked and traded.
Other members of the hyperledger project include Accenture, Fujitsu, IBM, JP Morgan and others.
