We are proud and honoured to announce the EBA and Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Foundation have agreed to work together to accelerate the development and adoption of business blockchain technologies throughout Europe. They will participate in each other’s communities and events with the overarching goal of promoting, supporting and leveraging enterprise blockchain-related activities of European enterprises, startups, governments, and academic institutions.
Hyperledger Foundation: Building enterprise-grade blockchain solutions since 2015
Hyperledger Foundation was founded in 2015 to bring transparency and efficiency to the enterprise market by fostering a thriving ecosystem around open source blockchain software technologies. As a project of the Linux Foundation, Hyperledger Foundation on coordinates a community of member and non-member organisations, individual contributors and software developers building enterprise-grade platforms, libraries, tools, and solutions for multi-party systems using blockchain, distributed ledger, and related technologies.
Enabling the ecosystem to advance collectively
“There is no shortage of innovation in both the development and deployment of enterprise-grade blockchain technologies”, says Daniela Barbosa, Executive Director, Hyperledger Foundation. “We see a rapid evolution of the market with advances and implementations happening across web3, digital identity, multi-chain networks, verifiable credentials, tokenization and a host of other applications. Cooperating across all areas of the industry is now more important than ever to avoid innovation siloes and ensure the whole ecosystem advances together. We are very much looking forward to working towards interoperability and standardisation with the EBA community.”
The two organisations agreed to identify and share practices, collaborate on events and speaking engagements, and build a strong presence in Europe together.
Building the future: regulatory foundations and enterprise-grade solutions
“The Hyperledger Foundation is an organisation that we are very excited to work with. Both parties bring vital competencies to the table, which, when combined, have the potential to have a significant effect on the industry. While the EBA is presently concentrating its efforts on regulatory and legislative matters, the Hyperledger Foundation has unparalleled experience in developing the most effective solutions for business organisations ”, says Michael Gebert, Chairman of the EBA. “For businesses to reap the benefits of the most recent advances, both parts must be coordinated. I, along with the entire EBA community, eagerly anticipate innovating together. ”
