Ethereum Co-Founder Joe Lubin Joins Hyperledger Board1 min read
Ethereum Co-Founder Joseph Lubin was reported by Coindesk that he will be joining the governing board of the Linux Foundation-led blockchain consortium Hyperledger.
ConenSys has also announced that they became the latest Hyperledger premier member, as per the report.
Consensys will also work with Hyperledger in exploring interoperability between blockchains. They also aim to promote standards to support “enterprise-grade blockchain environments.”
The engineering group from ConsenSys’ PegaSys protocol recently submitted its Ethereum client. Hyperledger Besu was formerly known as Pantheon. Besu project aims to provide a platform for open development and deployment.
Joseph Lubin stated on the report:
“PegaSys and ConsenSys have been committed to open-source software and submitting Hyperledger Besu to Hyperledger demonstrates that commitment. Public networks with tens of thousands of nodes are most appropriate in a world in which we will see the tokenization of many types of assets and resources.”
Hyperledger has now 270 members. Which came from different industries such as finance, banking, IoT, supply chain, manufacturing and technology. There are now 22 premier members on the governing board that includes Consensys.
Brian Behlendorf (executive director of Hyperledger) said:
“The more technologies and members we have working together, the stronger the foundation we can collectively build for blockchain-based solutions,”
