Cisco joins Hyperledger Blockchain as Premier Member

The Hyperledger project managed by the Linux Foundation announced that Cisco is joining as a Premier Member of the project. Thier press-release (Hyperledger Adds Cisco as a Premier Member) states that Cisco’s  Jagadeesan will join the Hyperledger board.

This follows the recent announcement that they will join the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance. As is typical with Cisco these days, a blog post announces their intent to push blockchain adoption, particularly for IoT, by using the blockchain to both secure and validate devices and the data they send. They formed the Trusted IoT Alliance with Bosch, Foxconn, Gemalto and others with a mission to leverage blockchain infrastructure to secure and scale IoT ecosystems.

“Blockchain technology represents the next generation of the Internet — the internet of value and trusted transactions which will drive extensive industry transformation. It is ever more important to come together and build open and interoperable solutions which will enable widespread adoption and allow companies to harness blockchain’s disruptive power. We are excited to promote Hyperledger’s longevity and growth across multiple use cases and industries.” –  Jagadeesan, Distinguished Engineer and Blockchain CTO, Cisco

“Cisco is a technology leader with expertise building secure, scalable and Internet scale critical infrastructure; We are thrilled they’re taking a leadership role within Hyperledger’s Governing Board. Cisco has been an active member of Hyperledger and we highly value its contributions to date.” – Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger
