Blockchain technology is transforming every industry in an economy, and innovations are taking place to increase business efficiency in a competitive and global economy. To apply the blockchain technology, various experimentation is taking place with business structures and model. Out of which Hyperledger projects by Linux foundation is spearing the blockchain market ground the most. The bitcoin-based blockchain is a public ledger in which anyone can participate to exchange cryptocurrencies, but for a large enterprise, only trading cryptocurrency and storing transactions are not enough because large enterprises are information sensitive and require privacy in sharing information. That is why Hyperledger projects came into existence in 2015.
Hyperledger fabric is the main program of Hyperledger technology. It’s a blockchain network with permission which means to be a part of the system; certain conditions of that particular Hyperledger blockchain network should be met. The feature of customizing the entire blockchain is more feasible for enterprise or any business than an open blockchain network. Moreover, data stored on hyperledger Sawtooth is only accessible through network permission.
It is a decentralized ledger which can be formed based on requirements. Enterprises with the need for a decentralized private ledger can use this blockchain framework. Moreover, data stored on hyperledger Sawtooth is only accessible through network permission.
It is a type of smart contract, we have seen in public blockchain such as in Ethereum based smart contracts. It is based on Ethereum Virtual Machine only, but the distinctive feature is it requires permission from built Hyperledger network. Hyperledger Burrow is mainly useful to large companies who do departmental transactions and needs special smart contract features as mentioned previously.
It is a type of consensus algorithm known as Byzantine Fault Tolerant (BFT). It is also known as “yet another consensus” in blockchain market. Through its gossip protocol, a peer half-sign the information and passes on to a random peer, then the signing process goes on, and that’s how a block of data is added through BFT consensus. It is written in C++ programming language.
It is a decentralized and customized digital identity library. It also contains reusable components to create an independent digital identity library on any decentralized and distributed ledger. Moreover, communication is also possible due to the use of the public network. Hyperledger framework is all permission-based programs, and participants or nodes are identifiable in the blockchain or Hyperledger fabric. Hyperledger fabric is the base of Hyperledger projects and another structure mentioned above can be attached to or can be used independently as well. But the foundation of the entire Hyperledger is Hyperledger fabric.
Hyperledger fabric is similar to BitCoin blockchain, but it is a private network and information sharing is done through permission by the industry players. Moreover, Hyperledger projects itself do not have a cryptocurrency, but for any enterprise based Hyperledger system, a crypto coin can be developed. Apart from the unique feature, in Hyperledger participants are known to each other and have some level of trust to execute transactions.
The Hyperledger fabric network transactions when executed between two participants, the information only stays with those participants only but is immutable.
The hyperledger fabric network transactions when executed between two participants, the information only stays with those participants only but is immutable. The other nodes are part of consensus only and will need permission from deal executors to access information. Here, these deals can be executed through Hyperledger Burrow.
The pluggable architecture of Hyperledger fabric allows an enterprise to develop a private blockchain based on the industry requirements and conditions. For example, for supply chain industry, other related segment players need to be part of private blockchain such as container providers, importer, exporter, etc.
Hyperledger fabric can be developed through any programming language. The smart contracts as well, making easy deployment by the blockchain developers and any developer can quickly learn the Hyperledger fabric.
