The Linux Foundation's Hyperledger is an influential distributed ledger platform suitable for use in many enterprise use cases. Hyperledger is an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. It is a global collaboration, hosted by The Linux Foundation, including leaders in finance, banking, Internet of Things, supply chains, manufacturing and Technology.
Dr. Leemon Baird's hashgraph algorithm is a major step forward in distributed consensus research. Hashgraph forces us to think about the limitations current blockchain technologies and how we can create next-generation distributed ledgers of the future. Ledgers built using the hashgraph algorithm are:
Hashgraph is not just an incremental step forward. It's a leap into the future.
About the hl-mercury project
This project's goal is to bring the benefits of the hashgraph consensus algorithm to Hyperledger.
We are a globally distributed team of software developers, engineers and technologists who are curious about the future, passionate about next-gen DLT technology and want to apply the latest advancements in distributed consensus to the projects we're working on today.
Currently, we have a working Proof Of Concept that uses Hyperledger Fabric's pluggable consensus capability in order to integrate with Swirlds' Hashgraph SDK.
