We’re pleased to announce that REMME has now joined Hyperledger, the open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies hosted by The Linux Foundation. Hyperledger has attracted major players from many sectors such as banking, finance, manufacturing and IoT. We’re honored to be among such esteemed company, and to be able to play our part in furthering blockchain innovation.
Hyperledger boasts members that are globally recognizable brands in their own right including giants such as American Express, IBM and Intel. In addition to these premier members, the project is comprised of hundreds of other tech-oriented companies including many from the cryptocurrency space. We haven’t joined the project simply to brag about it or to namedrop however: we’re here to make a difference.
The REMME PKI (d) protocol we’re building is powered by Hyperledger Sawtooth, one of the Hyperledger blockchain frameworks, so joining the project came naturally. This enterprise-grade blockchain is prized for its modular design, with its core separated from the application domain. Thanks to its open source design, coupled with its modularity, Hyperledger Sawtooth will enable us to build out the REMME protocol and then the dApps we intend to integrate with our access management solution.
Brian Behlendorf, Hyperledger Executive Director, said: “We welcome REMME to Hyperledger and look forward to working with them. The entire ecosystem is in great health right now, and we’re seeing some great projects emerging that are making clever use of Hyperledger’s modular blockchain. We’re excited to see what REMME will create.”
The mission of Hyperledger includes creating “an enterprise grade, open source distributed ledger framework and code base, upon which users can build and run robust, industry-specific applications, platforms and hardware systems” which is exactly what we’re doing. As we recently announced, the alpha 0.1.0 version of our Core protocol is ready for release. It’s actually the third iteration of the REMME protocol, and includes the architecture and high-level logic for working with SSL / TLS certificates together with the basic elements dictating the economy of the REM token.
Hyperledger’s mission also includes “creating an open source, technical community to benefit the ecosystem of…providers and users, focused on blockchain and shared ledger use cases that will work across a variety of industry solutions,” and that’s what we intend to do in the coming months as REMME Core is rolled out across a range of industries and sectors.
