Of the six new members, four are based in China. The new members include Beijing Botuzongheng Science & Technology Co, Shanghai Gingkoo Financial Technology, Sinolending and ZhongChao Credit Card Industry Development Co. Two US-based firms – Altoros Americas and the Chamber of Digital Commerce – have also joined.
A full quarter of the Hyperledger membership is now based in China, the project’s representatives said today – a reflection of a push to encourage more stakeholders in the country to join and play an active role. According to executive director Brian Behlendorf, the growing ranks are a signal of support for open-source development of the technology.
In recent months, Hyperledger has launched initiatives such as a healthcare-oriented working group.
The Hyperledger project has added six new organizations to its ranks, bringing the total number of members in the year-old blockchain project to more than 100.
The group, overseen by the Linux Foundation, has been steadily adding members since its inception last December.
"The growth and support across the globe is a testament to the need for an open source initiative, like Hyperledger, that accelerates the development of blockchain software and systems to reinvent industries."
