What is Hyperledger?

Hyperledger is an open-source project and collaborative effort hosted by the Linux Foundation. It aims to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies by providing a modular framework for building distributed ledger systems and blockchain-based applications.

Unlike public blockchains like Bitcoin or Ethereum, which are decentralized and open to anyone, Hyperledger focuses on permissioned or private blockchains. Permissioned blockchains restrict participation to a specific group of known participants, offering control and privacy.

Hyperledger provides a suite of blockchain frameworks and tools that can be utilized by organizations to develop customized blockchain solutions. Some prominent frameworks within the Hyperledger ecosystem include Hyperledger Fabric, Hyperledger Sawtooth, and Hyperledger Indy.
