At the recently held Sibos 2019 event in London, Hyperledger took the opportunity to highlight 20 case studies highlighting the usage of enterprise blockchain in the financial sector, as well as welcome ConsenSys as a premier member of the alliance.

The Linux Foundation-hosted open source collaborative effort also introduced its Capital Markets Special Interest Group (SIG) to encourage further collaboration and adoption of the technology in the market.

Additionally, Hyperledger made two announcements at the event. The first was joining of five more members to its global community and the second was the approval of its 15th project: Hyperledger Besu, which is the first public chain compatible blockchain project in the Hyperledger greenhouse.

ConsenSys is the latest premier member to join Hyperledger, whereas companies like Ankr, Avanza Innovations and Chengtay Infotech joined as general members. Moreover, Collegium Da Vinci – a Polish private university – joined as one of the associate members in this month.

In June, Hyperledger welcomed Microsoft and Salesforce as its new members, whereas other names like Russian metal company Norilsk Nickel (Nornickel), Polish agricultural tech solutions developer Gloscad, and American SCM tech solutions developer Milligan Partners, also signed up. China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT), the Ethereum Foundation, and GS1 joined the consortium as associate members.

ConsenSys recently published an article which listed the top 20 blockchain projects on GitHub, based on the highest amount of developer activity. The list is led by names including Status Messenger, Crypto Wallet, and Web3 Browser.
