Among the new participants of Hyperledger there are Coil, ChainDigit, Chainyard, DigiCert, Kiva and UTRUST.

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.

Also in late July, the release of a new whitepaper of consortium took place. As the developers stated, the document contains "five exciting applications of blockage in various areas," and a description of tools with open source.

Recently, Google Corp. said that this year Google Cloud Product integrates open source software for applications based on the Hyperledger Fabric and Ethereum blockchain platforms.

Microsoft & EEA to Create Token Taxonomy Initiative

The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) blockchain consortium launched a project with Microsoft to help businesses develop and create tokens to solve specific problems.

The EEA intends to act as a platform for the Token Taxonomy Initiative, which involves the Hyperledger, R3 and Digital Asset Holdings consortia. At the same time, IBM and Intel, JP Morgan financial holding, ConsenSys blockchain start-up and many others will participate in the project.

According to Ron Reznick, Director General of the EEA, various seminars will be available to specialists as well as the GitHub repository as part of the initiative. Already existing tokens on different blockchains will be tested, and then reduced to a single standard.

Microsoft Chief Architect Marley Gray noted that during his work with the Microsoft Azure cloud platform and EEA, he often encountered various industry consortia that spent a lot of time trying to understand “how best tokenize, for example, a barrel of oil”.

Thus, as part of the initiative, it is planned to create a token constructor so that any person, even without being a technical specialist, can explain to developers what he wants from an asset.

Last year, EEA and another leading blockchain consortium Hyperledger announced a partnership that provides for the creation of uniform standards for corporate distributed networks developed by the participants of these two organizations.
