2017年即将结束,回顾并反思我们已经取得的进展,以及新的一年里我们将看到进化和发展的好处。今年以来,全球已经承认分布式账本和智能合约是具有巨大潜力的变革性技术,是可以影响到许多行业的。在Hyperledger,技术基础已经确定。在未来一年,这将会变成更多的生产软件版本,应用于实际运用,成为集体知识和财务投资的第一次真正的商业回报。 

下面是一些从今年开始我们观察到的的变化、一些里程碑和2018年即将要发生的事情。

一、区块链技术趋于成熟、更多项目趋于实施

  • 大大小小的IT厂商和终端用户组织,财团和非政府组织,每个人都在2017年注意到了Hyperledger,并开始采取行动参与其中。这在越来越多的Hyperledger会员数量中足以体现这种变化,这个数字几乎增加了一倍。从总计21家核心成员,今年新增了8家新公司,包括SAP,美国运通,戴姆勒,变更医疗,NEC,思科,Tradeshift和百度。Hyperledger 现在有来自197个组织的支持,并且是Linux基金会有史以来发展最快的开源项目,这使得Hyperledger在经济上有了一个非常稳固的基础,使得我们能够在2018年将可用于建设和支持社区的资源翻一番。
  • 我们已经发展了我们的准成员队伍,包括像美组织,全国房地产经纪人协会伊利诺伊区块链倡议新加坡金融管理局这样的组织。这些关系是将Hyperledger的覆盖范围扩展到不同的部门和环境的关键。
  • 为证明我们专注于开发适合企业用途的代码,今年推出了第一款量产Hyperledger区块链框架的Hyperledger Fabric 1.0。这是一次社区里程碑式的努力,包含100多个不同的开发商和30个不同公司的贡献。因此我们在“ 供应商目录”中列出了45名成员提供基于Hyperledger技术的产品和服务。
  • 我们看到Hyperledger技术的POC,试点和生产实施大幅增加,其中许多正在Hyperledger网站上的PoC Tracker上进行追踪。Hyperledger代码中的几个项目包括:
    • 新加坡金融管理局Ubin项目实施了RTGS系统;
    • 即将由Everledger, SAP和IBM 实施的即将生产的钻石供应链追踪系统;
    • 塑料银行,一个塑料回收倡议。

2018年,我们将看到:

  • 各种Hyperledger项目明年将有更多的1.0里程碑;
  • 更多的生产部署:例如,Change Healthcare,已经宣布将在2018年初上线在Hyperledger Fabric构建的索赔处理区块链;
  • 越来越多的Hyperledger工作人员将参与各种活动,创造更多的内容,支持越来越多的项目和工作组;
  • 面对更多的会员增长,我们正在向更广泛的行业伸出援助之手,并加深与现有成员的关系。  

快速发展的开发者和最终用户社区将继续增长

  • 对开发者的需求和开发商对Hyperledger的兴趣已经爆炸。现在我们在几十个城市看到了Hyperledger的聚会,在全球举办的半月HackFests活动中,我们的电子邮件聊天网络成千上万的参与者,在会议上不断请求发言人,当然还有更多和更多的代码流入我们的仓库。
  • 今年我们推出了第一个Hyperledger在线培训课程:商业区块链 - Hyperledger技术介绍。目前共有招生44,966人,已有1074名学员顺利通过。我们平均每周有2,500个新入学人数。该课程仅次于Linux基金会发起的针对Linux操作系统课程的原始介绍。现在我们启动了一个培训和教育工作组,让核心维护人员和其他志愿者参与开发额外的课件。 
  • 新加坡十一月份有150人参加了超级会员峰会,代表了83个不同的会员公司。  

2018年,我们将看到:

  • 将开发更多的培训课程和认证选项;
  • 更频繁和更大的面对面的开发者聚会;
  • 以及其他Hyperledger项目中的更多开发人员活动。

二、整合,标准和互操作性将成为重中之重

  • 2017年,社区开始探索 Hyperledger Sawtooth和Hyperledger Burrow等不同Hyperledger技术的集成 我们打赌这种合作和探索将在明年继续。Hyperledger技术指导委员会还在2017年接受了四个新项目,包括Hyperledger BurrowHyperledger IndyHyperledger ComposerHyperledger Quilt。Quilt尤其侧重于在多区块链世界中实现互操作性。我们预计明年将有更多的这样的项目将被称为Hyperledger。
  • Hyperledger可伸缩性和性能工作组在6月上市。各种其他努力,例如新的区块链互操作性联盟,有望促进2017年不同区块链之间更大程度的连通性。

2018年,我们将看到:

  • 业界对DLT层互操作性更为关注,并且寻求简单而开放的跨区块链方法,引导他们进入Hyperledger Quilt和我们其余的社区;
  • 而且我们的项目更深入地探索了彼此之间的集成和互操作性,为开发人员提供了更多的选择。

我们为今年充满活力和多元化的社区所做的工作感到自豪。我们已经取得了长足的进步,对于参与这一成功的每一个人都感到无比的感激。不言而喻,开源软件的风险可能会更高,这是一个欢迎创造,协作的平衡环境,同时确保每个人都有发言权,所有的声音都能听到。我们坚信Hyperledger从Linux基金会自然继承的
开放式管理模式是该项目持续成功的重要组成部分。

As 2017 comes to a close, it’s beneficial to look back and reflect on the progress we have made, and where we will see evolution and growth in the new year. This year, the world has acknowledged distributed ledgers and smart contracts as transformative technologies with tremendous potential to impact how business is conducted in many industries. Within  Hyperledger, the technology foundations have now been set. In the coming year, that will turn into more production software releases, real world implementations, and the first real business returns on our collective intellectual and financial investment.  

Below are a few observations from the year, milestones and thoughts on what will come in 2018.

Blockchain maturation and more production implementations

  • Companies large and small, IT vendors and end-user organizations, consortiums and NGOs, everyone took notice of Hyperledger in 2017 and made moves to get involved. This was evident in the ever increasing Hyperledger membership, which nearly doubled in size. We sold out of our Premier memberships at 21 total, adding eight new companies just this year including SAP, American Express, Daimler, Change Healthcare, NEC, Cisco, Tradeshift and Baidu. Hyperledger now has support from 197 organizations, and remains the fastest growing open source project ever hosted by The Linux Foundation. This has given Hyperledger a very solid footing financially, enabling us to double the resources we can apply towards building and supporting the community in 2018.
  • We have grown our Associate Member ranks to include organizations as diverse as Mercy Corps, the National Association of Realtorsthe Illinois Blockchain Initiative, and the Monetary Authority of Singapore.  These relationships are key to extending Hyperledger’s reach into different sectors and environments.
  • Attesting to our focus on developing code suitable for enterprise use, this year saw the launch of the first production ready Hyperledger blockchain framework, Hyperledger Fabric 1.0. This was a true community effort pulling together contributions from more than 100 different developers and 30 different companies. As one result, we have 45 members listed in our Vendor Directory, providing products and services based on Hyperledger technology.
  • We have seen substantial uptick in POCs, pilots and production implementations of Hyperledger technologies, many of which are being tracked at the PoC Tracker on the Hyperledger website. Just a few examples of projects building in Hyperledger code include:

    • The Monetary Authority of Singapore’s Project Ubin, implementing an RTGS system;
    • the soon-to-be-production diamond supply chain tracking system implemented by Everledger, SAP and IBM;
    • and the Plastic Bank, a plastics recycling initiative.

In 2018, we will see:

  • more 1.0 milestones made next year by various Hyperledger projects;
  • more production deployments: for example, Change Healthcare, has announced an early 2018 go-live for their claims processing blockchain built on Hyperledger Fabric;
  • a growing Hyperledger staff and presence at events, creating more content, supporting a growing set of projects and working groups;
  • and more membership growth. We are reaching out to a broader set of industries than ever, and are deepening our relationships with our existing members.  

The fast expanding developer and end-user community will continue to grow

  • Demand for developers, and developer interest in Hyperledger, has exploded. We are now seeing sold-out Hyperledger meetups in dozens of cities, strong attendance at our semi-monthly HackFests held around the world, thousands of participants on our email and chat networks, non-stop requests for speakers at conferences, and of course more and more code flowing into our repositories.
  • We launched the first Hyperledger online training course this year: Blockchain for Business – An Introduction to Hyperledger Technologies. Currently, there are  44,966 total enrollments, and 1,074 learners have completed the course with a passing grade. We have an average of 2,500 new enrollments per week. The course is second only in growth to the original intro to Linux operating system course launched by The Linux Foundation. We have now launched a Training and Education Working Group to involve core maintainers and other volunteers in the development of additional courseware.
  • 150 people participated in the Hyperledger Member Summit in November in Singapore, representing 83 different member companies.  

In 2018, we will see:

  • the development of additional training courses and certification options;
  • more frequent and larger face to face developer gatherings;
  • and more developer activity across additional Hyperledger projects.

Integration, standards and interoperability will take center focus

  • In 2017, the community started exploring integrations among different Hyperledger technologies like Hyperledger Sawtooth and Hyperledger Burrow.  We’re betting this collaboration and exploration will continue next year. The Hyperledger technical steering committee also accepted four new projects into incubation in 2017 including Hyperledger BurrowHyperledger IndyHyperledger Composer and Hyperledger Quilt. Quilt, in particular, is focused on enabling interoperability in a multi-blockchain world. We are anticipating that more such projects will call Hyperledger home next year.
  • The Hyperledger Scalability and Performance Working Group was launched in June to facilitate important conversations. Various other efforts such as the new Blockchain Interoperability Alliance were created to advance standards that will hopefully promote a greater degree of connectivity between different blockchains in 2017.

In 2018, we will see:

  • The industry get a lot more serious about interoperability above the layer of the DLT, and looking for simple and open cross-blockchain approaches, leading them to Hyperledger Quilt and the rest of our community;
  • and our projects explore integration and interoperability with each other even further, allowing a greater number of options to be available to developers.

We’re proud of the work our vibrant and diverse community has accomplished this year. We have made great strides and could not be more thankful to everyone who has played a part in this success. It goes without saying the stakes can be even higher in open source, it’s a balance of creating a welcoming, collaborative environment and at the same time making sure everyone gets a say and all voices are heard. We strongly believe the 
open governance model that Hyperledger naturally inherited from The Linux Foundation has been a crucial part of the continued success of the project.
