While July is traditionally a quiet month, we’ve been quite busy hitting some key community and technology milestones. Heading into the second half of the year, we are focused on continuing our growth and advancing our open source, multiple framework approach to meet the increasingly diverse applications for blockchain technology. As we plan for the Hyperledger Global Forum, we will be calling on these new members and the entire ecosystem to keep driving the vision and technology forward to scale to meet the global demand for blockchain-powered businesses.
