Blockchain

Fast, Indelible, Trusted

Blockchain As a Service

Anticipated in use by up to 65% by 2020, Blockchain As a Service is a key offering for many market segments. We are learning, experimenting on the Hyperledger Project with IBM, to try on possibilities for a ‘System-of-Records’ in Federal IT systems on Blockchain Technology, for faster decision making, creating an indelible audit trail for trust and accountability.

Current Trends

Banks have spent more than $1 billion on blockchain projects in 2016. Financial institutions are the early adopters of Blockchain technology, at the same time thought leaders from varied business domains like healthcare, supply chain, energy utilities, music industry, transport etc. are trying to become the disrupters.

The Potential

Blockchain has the potential to transform transaction based business models drastically. The outcomes may lead to better security, extremely transparent and highly efficient systems. 

Why Blockchain?

Its a peer-to-peer database of which every participant has a copy. Transactions recorded in this distributed database are immutable, unchangeable, written in stone. The only way to make a change is, to record another transaction that modifies the original transaction. Blockchain by design offers security, transparency and efficiency to solutions built on top of it.


Hyperledger Fabric

Hyperledger Fabric is an open source collaborative effort, where communities of software developers blockchain technologies are being leveled up for mainstream commercial enterprise adoptions. Hyperledger participants are exploring, building and improving a new generation of transactional applications that establish trust and transparency while streamlining business processes. The blockchain is being designed to be modular and pluggable to fit a variety of use cases.

Hyperledger Fabric is managed by the Linux Foundation. It is an open source collaborative effort to bring about the much-needed extreme makeover for Blockchain to develop enterprise solutions. Industry-leading organizations have joined the Hyperledger Project to develop an enterprise-grade, cross-industry open platform for distributed ledgers.

Hyperledger consists of

  1. Membership Services (manages identities, certificates of participating nodes)

  2. Blockchain (distributed ledger)

  3. Consensus Mechanism (set of rules that maintain a coherent set of facts between participating nodes)

  4. Chaincode, or Smart Contracts (set of application specific business rules, or a rules engine)
