Hyperledger announces Sawtooth Ethereum integration

Hyperledger Blockchain Consortium announces Sawtooth Ethereum (Seth), a Proof Of Concept integration
23 August 2017   1467

Ethereum developers are to have another way to build enterprise-grade implementations of the open-source technology.

Thus, on August 22nd, Hyperledger Blockchain Consortium reported that “simple” smart contracts (EDCCs) can now be deployed to Hyperledger Sawtooth using “Seth,” the Sawtooth Ethereum Transaction Family. Revealed on Hyperledger's website, a proof-of-concept called Sawtooth Ethereum, or "Seth", has been completed. The integration is to enable the use of Ethereum smart contracts on Hyperledger Sawtooth, Intel's addition to the Linux-led consortium's code.

The Seth family consists of a new client, `seth`, that is used to construct and submit transactions to the network and a new transaction processor, `seth-tp`, that runs the Burrow Ethereum Virtual machine. Thanks to the modular design of Hyperledger Sawtooth, getting the Hyperledger Burrow EVM running under Hyperledger Sawtooth was relatively easy. Transaction processors run in a separate process and communicate with the validation process over a network interface. The Hyperledger Burrow EVM code was wrapped in an adapter but was otherwise left unmodified.

As a result, Hyperledger Sawtooth gains an EVM implementation as well as adds plans for the following new core features among which are core and family-defined events, transaction execution receipts, batch injection, and on-chain block validation rules.

According to the report, the next step in the integration is enabling developers with existing web applications and smart contracts to seamlessly transition their work to the Hyperledger Sawtooth platform. As the developers claim, a major part of making this transition possible will be the creation of a `seth-rpc` server that supports the Public Ethereum and Burrow JSON-RPC interfaces.

Genesis London Conference will take place on February 22, tackling the most pertinent issues in blockchain space: research and development, regulation, economics and applications.

Genesis London is a platform for researchers, developers and generally anyone interested in blockchain, and its priority is to share knowledge, facilitate productive discourse and filter out the hype.

Location: The CityPoint building, 1 Ropemaker St, London, EC2, UK
Date and time: 9:30AM - 8PM, February 22, 2018

The agenda of the conference includes Privacy and Confidentiality Techniques for Blockchains; Permissioned Business Blockchain Applications and Use-cases; Scalable, Transparent and Post-quantum Secure Computational Integrity, with Applications to Cryptocurrencies; A Rational Protocol Design Treatment of Bitcoin, and more.

The headline speakers include Patrick de Laive, co-founder of TNW; Margarita Khartanovich, head of insight at Binary District; Jack Gavigan, chief operating officer at ZCash; Jeremy Kahn, technology writer for Bloomberg, and many more.
