The Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger project has finally released its first production Blockchain code, Fabric 1.0.

This is an implementation of blockchain technology, leveraging familiar and proven technologies. It is a modular architecture allowing pluggable implementations of various function, which features powerful container technology to host any mainstream language for smart contracts development.

In announcements on Twitter and its blog, Hyperledger, which already counts global giants such as IBM and SWIFT among its customers, called the release a “huge milestone for the community.”

Brian Behlendorf, executive Director of the Hyperledger Project, named the improved private channels of transactions, with increased reliability and bandwidth among the significant changes in the new version of the Fabric platform.

In the company's blog, Chris Ferris, Chair of Hyperledger Technical Steering Committee, expressed his pride:

The project’s maintainers felt that the time was ripe to deliver a robust initial major release with the objective of allowing consumers and vendors of technology based on Hyperledger Fabric to advance to the next stage: production deployment and operations.

He also pointed out that as well as "no open source project is ever “done,” the same can be said for Hyperledger Fabric" and there’s much, much more the company is wants to do, such as to "improve delivery of a Byzantine Fault Tolerant orderer capability, explore integration with other Hyperledger projects such as Sawtooth, Iroha, Indy and Burrow, add support for Java and other chaincode development languages, deliver additional SDKs for Go and Python, provide a recipe(s) for deployment to Kubernetes, deliver proper installers for the various development platforms".

HTMLCoin swap process comes to an end

On March 27 HTMLCoin finalizes the swap procedure of old HTML5Coin into HTMLCoin at a rate 3:1 and thus the migration to a new blockchain will be officially completed

In full accordance with the swap schedule, March 27 marks the end of the swap procedure of the old HTML5Coin token into new HTMLCoin token. This final stage of the swap that lasted roughly 14 days is considered to be late stage and thus the rate is 3 (old) : 1 (new).

A special web form was prepared so that the users could fill it out and perform the swat themselves (therefore it was called 'Self-swap service'). The users can use this form for both the HTML5Coin wallet addresses and YoBIT exchange withdrawal code called 'Yobit code'. The HTMLCoin team warns that sometimes the YoBIT exchange withdrawal function may not work and recommends repeating the procedure later or contact HTMLCoin support for help with the withdrawal.

The actual swap are going to be handled on Saturday, March 31. The official end date of the swap procedure is set on March 28. This swap is due to the migration of HTMLCoin to a new blockchain with new features for freelancers and segregated minorities (e-learning programs, job hunting and connections, freelance mobile app). These rich features all aim to empower freelancers and vulnerable communities to new bold opportunities, learn new skills and apply them immediately. Freelancers-Business platform is set to connect companies and freelancers to help adopt these innovative concept.

As of the moment of publication, the HTMLCoin market indicators are as follows:

Average price: $0.000541

Market cap: $35,579,234

Volume (24h): $70,079
