Chamber Of Digital Commerce And Hyperledger Team Up To Advocate Blockchain

The Chamber of Digital Commerce has partnered up with the Hyperledger Project to advance, and advocate for, blockchain technology.

The Chamber of Digital Commerce is teaming up with Hyperledger to increase industry awareness of blockchain technology. They’ve entered into a strategic partnership geared towards industry advocacy and blockchain education.The Hyperledger Project seeks to make the blockchain interoperable with finance, manufacturing, the supply chain industry, and more. The Chamber of Digital Commerce is the world’s largest trade association representing the blockchain industry, so partnering with the Hyperledger Project adds their specific technological expertise to The Chamber’s significant public policy experience.

This will only mean good things for the industry as a whole. Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin had addressed their technical steering committee on potential integration of Ethereum’s blockchain into Hyperledger’s existing codebases. Although, developments since the April 2016 meeting have yet to be brought forth. The Hyperledger Project seeks to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies, and The Chamber wants to see the technology spread and integrated. The blockchain ecosystem stands to benefit from any increase in awareness.

Their strategic partnership will focus on public policy efforts, intellectual property issues, global regulation, and interoperability between blockchains and established technologies. This is a great step towards widespread adoption of this disruptive technology. See their full press release below:

WASHINGTON, D.C. and SAN FRANCISCO, C.A. – November 29, 2016 – The Chamber of Digital Commerce, the world’s largest trade association representing the blockchain industry, and Hyperledger Project, a collaborative cross-industry effort created to advance blockchain technology, today announce a strategic partnership to strengthen industry advocacy and education efforts.  

Leveraging the Chamber’s public policy expertise and Hyperledger’s technology expertise, both market leading organizations will further promote the understanding, acceptance and use of digital assets and blockchain-based technologies. 

Areas of common interest that the Chamber and Hyperledger will immediately begin focusing on, include public policy efforts, intellectual property issues, and global regulatory and technical interoperability. 

"Active engagement and collaboration between government authorities and the open source blockchain technology community is essential to realizing the potential of these new platforms and tools," said Brian Behlendorf, executive director of the Hyperledger Project. “I am pleased to welcome the Chamber of Digital Commerce to the Hyperledger Project. The policy expertise they bring will be extremely beneficial to our overall goals of driving open blockchain technology efforts forward.” 

“A pro-growth perspective towards regulation and industry standards are some of the biggest challenges the open source community faces,” said Perianne Boring, founder and president of the Chamber of Digital Commerce. “We are excited to work with the technical experts and open source community at the Hyperledger Project to further support our efforts on behalf of the blockchain industry.”
