Hyperledger Frameworks Introduction
Based on different business and enterprise scenarios, multiple Hyperledger frameworks were developed. These are as follows:
It utilizes permissioned Smart Contracts methodology based upon Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM).
Hyperledger Fabric is the most stable platform by Hyperledger. It is mostly suitable for business applications. It uses components (consensus and membership services) in form of plug-and-play. It deploys business rules in smart contracts also known as “chaincode”.
It is a framework developed and designed solely for distributed identity.
It is a blockchain framework designed in such a way that it can be incorporated in infrastructure projects easily.
It is a blockchain framework that keeps the platform highly modular such that the enterprise and consortium can make their own decisions about their blockchain applications.
Hyperledger Tools Introduction
We have already discussed various blockchain frameworks provided by Hyperledger. In this section we will discuss various tools provided by Hyperledger that can be used by the frameworks.
It is a blockchain tool to measure the performance of any blockchain by using set of predefined use cases.
It is a blockchain tool to bring on-demand deployment model to the blockchain ecosystem.
It is a blockchain tool which is used to make development of blockchain application easier.
It is a dashboard which gives information on the network, blocks, node logs, smart contracts and transaction.
It is a tool to implement ILP i.e. Interledger Protocol which is a payment protocol for Blockchain technology.
Hyperledger has published several whitepapers to discuss the underline technologies; you can read the Introduction to Hyperledger here.
