Earlier, DAML support appeared in the framework of Hyperledger Sawtooth and VMWare.

Digital Asset Holdings stressed that in the future they can work with other centralized solutions like Amazon products, because there is a demand for the company's services in this segment.

At the same time, it became known that such giants as Microsoft Corporation, Salesforce software developer, Russian Norilsk Nickel, Polish Gloscad and consulting firm Milligan Partners joined the ranks of the Hyperledger consortium.

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.
