Hyperledger Foundation, an open source global collaboration of enterprise blockchain technologies, has launched its biggest annual event, the Hyperledger Global Forum 2022.

Ahead of Monday’s event, the Foundation announcement the addition of eight new members to its international community; namely, CasperLabs, Realto Group, BCW Group, Banque de France, Central Bank of Nigeria, Digital Identity Laboratory of Canada, International Association For Trusted Blockchain Applications (INATBA), and DSR Corporation.

Daniel Barbosa, Executive Director of the Hyperledger Foundation and Managing Director of Blockchain, Healthcare, and Identity at the Linux Foundation, said, “Hyperledger technologies are playing an outsized role in reshaping existing markets and creating new markets. Our new members bring a diversity of innovations to the Hyperledger community, accelerating the development of open, decentralized technologies that will form the infrastructure for many generations of new services and applications.

Hyperledger Foundation is a non-profit organization that seeks to bring together vital resources and infrastructure to create a thriving and stable ecosystem around open source software blockchain projects. Hyperledger enables member organizations to leverage their open source distributed ledger frameworks, tools, and resources to build enterprise-grade and industry-specific hardware applications, platforms, and systems to meet the needs of business transactions.

The Foundation’s enterprise-grade blockchain software projects are designed and built by a community of developers for service providers, start-ups, vendors, end-user organizations, academics, and commercial solutions.

New members of the Hyperledger Foundation, such as the Bank of France and the Central Bank of Nigeria, seem to suggest that governments around the world are slowly opening up to blockchain technology and its innovations.

Just recently, Nigeria announced that it was in preliminary talks with Binance to create a crypto-friendly economic zone in the country.
