Hyperledger Launches Blockchain Platform Sawtooth


Hyperledger, the open source blockchain project hosted by the Linux Foundation, released Hyperledger Sawtooth 1.0, a modular platform for building, deploying, and running distributed ledgers.

Hyperledger Sawtooth is the second active Hyperledger project to reach 1.0, following Hyperledger Fabric 1.0 in July 2017.

"We're beyond excited to see not one, but two of Hyperledger's active projects hit 1.0," said Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger. "This is a huge testament to the strong collaboration of our growing community - I look forward to seeing even more products and services being powered by Hyperledger Sawtooth later this year."

The features of Hyperledger Sawtooth includes On-chain governance, which allows users to utilize smart contracts to vote on blockchain configuration settings such as the allowed participants and smart contracts. It also supports Ethereum and has a broad language support, including Go, JavaScript, and Python.
