The blockchain consortium Hyperledger added support for the Pantheon Ethereum Java-based client, developed by the technical division of the ConsenSys startup. The initiative was called Hyperledger Besu.

So, the new product will be the first in the line of proposals of the consortium, allowing you to create applications on the public blockchain. Hyperledger Besu should become the link between the corporate sector and the open blockchain with the implementation of some of the benefits of private distributed networks.

The developers intend to combine the framework with the modular client Hyperledger Burrow, which contains a mechanism for limited access to read smart contracts, partially built on the basis of the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) specifications.

At the same time, the Pantheon team also plans to ensure the interoperability of the client with the Tendermint protocol. To do this, they are likely to use the product Hyperledger Quilt.

Cobalt & Lithium Supplies to be Tracked With DLT

The platform will be created by the Everledger together with Circulor using Hyperledger Fabric

Everledger, a British startup, has partnered with Circulor to develop a platform based on the Hyperledger Fabric blockchain to track supply chains of cobalt and lithium.

Everledger specializes in using blockchain to combat counterfeiting of precious stones, in particular diamonds. The company’s management said it intends to expand its business using blockchain to control the supply of rare minerals used in the production of batteries.

Well-known carmaker Mercedes Benz is already using Circulor technology to track its supply of cobalt and its carbon footprint. Circulor and Everledger share a similar concept - with the help of the blockchain they control the observance of social and environmental standards in mining. Therefore, startups decided to develop a joint product.

Everledger co-founder Leanne Kemp and Circulor CEO Doug Johnson-Poensgen said their solution will work on the Hyperledger Fabric blockchain. The possibility of interacting with IBM is also being discussed.

Poensgen added that the platform will be used not only to track cobalt production in the Democratic Republic of Congo, but in different regions of the world. For example, lithium mining in the Atacama desert leads to water pollution, so the solution on the blockchain is aimed at preventing environmental disasters.
