By Ken Briodagh April 26, 2017

In a recent announcement, the Linux Foundation project to build an open framework for IoT edge computing has said it’s added 135 members to its Hyperledger open blockchain initiative and 50 to its new EdgeX Foundry to unify the IoT Marketplace.

Hyperledger, a collaborative cross-industry effort created to advance blockchain technology, announced that its new members have joined the project to help create an open standard for distributed ledgers for a new generation of transactional applications.

“This is a very exciting time with world class global organizations joining Hyperledger nearly every week,” said Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger. “The blockchain technology community still has many challenges to solve, and many different possible approaches to solving them. Hyperledger's open collaboration is key to fostering this growing community and is fundamentally important to getting innovative ideas into production-quality code this year.”

Hyperledger aims to enable organizations to build robust, industry-specific applications, platforms and hardware systems to support their individual business transactions by creating an enterprise grade, open source distributed ledger framework and code base. It is a global collaboration including leaders in finance, banking, IoT, supply chain, manufacturing and technology. The latest members include: CollectorIQ Inc., Korea Exchange, Shanghai Onechain Information Technology, Shenzhen Forms Syntron Information, The State of Illinois, The Netherlands Organization for applied scientific research (TNO) and 1worldblockchain.

The EdgeX Foundry is determined to unify the IoT Marketplace, according to the announcement, with the goal of accelerating enterprise IoT deployments. relayr is one of 50 companies to join the Linux Foundation project. The recent launch of the EdgeX Foundry, an open source project to build a common open framework for Internet of Things (IoT) edge computing and an ecosystem of interoperable components that unifies the marketplace and accelerates enterprise and Industrial IoT, is reportedly aligned around a common goal: the simplification and standardization of Industrial IoT edge computing, while still allowing the ecosystem to add significant value.
