Hyperledger Announces 14 New Members

  • 183 diverse organizations back Linux Foundation’s open blockchain consortium

    SAN FRANCISCO, CA – (November 28, 2017)Hyperledger, an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies, announced today that 14 new organizations have joined. As a multi-project, multi-stakeholder effort, Hyperledger incubates nine business blockchain and distributed ledger technologies including Hyperledger Fabric, Hyperledger Iroha, Hyperledger Indy, Hyperledger Burrow, Hyperledger Quilt and Hyperledger Sawtooth, among others.

    “The amount of interest in getting involved with Hyperledger and increasing diversity of organizations joining our efforts in 2017 is really building momentum,” said Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger. “These new members are critical in our goal of advancing enterprise grade, open source distributed ledger frameworks upon which users can build and run a variety of business applications. We’re excited to see the contributions from this vibrant community push forward more Hyperledger projects to 1.0 and beyond.”

    Hyperledger aims to enable organizations to build robust, industry-specific applications, platforms and hardware systems to support their individual business transactions by creating an enterprise grade, open source distributed ledger framework and code base. It is a global collaboration including leaders in finance, banking, IoT, supply chain, manufacturing and technology. The latest General members include: Agavon, B9lab, China Minsheng Bank, EBPI BV, Global Blockchain Technologies, GM Financial, GXChain, Information Builders, Sempre IT, United Traders and YDreams Global.

    Hyperledger supports an open community that values contributions and participation from various entities. As such, pre-approved non-profits, open source projects and government entities can join Hyperledger at no cost as Associate members. Associate members to join this month include: Monetary Authority of Singapore, National Association of Realtors and UCLA Blockchain Lab.

    New member quotes:


    “As one of our key areas of business is providing consulting services to help companies decide whether blockchain or other distributed ledger technologies is right for them, as well as which one would be best, it was natural for us to decide to become a member of Hyperledger,” said Travin Keith, Founder of Agavon. “This way, we join many other great businesses taking blockchain technology forward in the right way. We look forward to being active members of the community by collaborating with others and contributing to the ecosystem, especially since some members of our team have already been doing so over the past year.”


    “We have been watching the enterprise blockchain space for a while and the work of everyone involved in Hyperledger has been the most consistent and convincing by far,” said Elias Haase, Founder of B9lab. “We decided to build an in-depth developer course for Hyperledger Fabric, and more courses will be following for the other incubated projects. Our aim is to bring more talent into the market where the community and technology really merit it. We’re thrilled to be a part of the growing Hyperledger ecosystem.”

    China Minsheng Bank

    “China Minsheng Bank continues to focus on and explore the applications of blockchain technology in the financial industry,” said Niu Xinzhuang, general manager of the science and technology department of China MinSheng Bank. “Also, through technology leading business, change and innovation, China Minsheng Bank provides more efficient, more convenient, more intelligent financial services for clients. We’re very excited to join Hyperledger and contribute to this community.”


    “We are very happy to be part of the Hyperledger family,” Coen Egberink, managing director of EBPI BV. “The disruptive technology enables us to optimize and reinvent existing business models. Hyperledger gives us an advantage to make a difference for our customers and their users. We strongly believe in the new technological wave that Blockchain brings and think Hyperledger is the ideal tool to be part of that.”

    Global Blockchain Technologies

    “As we work in the dynamic and rapidly-growing blockchain industry, we are extremely eager to explore and heighten our understanding of a variety of blockchain platforms,” said Shidan Gouran, President of Global Blockchain Technologies Corp. “We feel that there is no universal solution for all problems. Joining Hyperledger is an ideal opportunity for us to collaborate with the community to develop top-tier blockchain solutions.”


    “Since its inception, our company has been devoted to using blockchain technology for providing efficient and safe data exchange services for companies, governments, and institutions, helping people better manage their data,” said Minqiang Huang, Founder and CEO of GXChain. “We believe data will be the most important resource. The development level of a country will be largely determined by their efficiency of using data. GXChain greatly simplifies procedures of data exchange, improving security, user privacy and protecting data copyrights. We are excited to join Hyperleder. We want to make a better world by collaborating with more members to explore blockchain and related business models.”

    Information Builders

    “As blockchain technology makes inroads into finance, manufacturing, logistics, and many other business domains, Information Builders is pleased to introduce mature technologies for data intelligence, data integrity, and data integration to Hyperledger,” said Gerald Cohen, CEO of Information Builders. “Our iWay Service Manager (iSM) integration engine and WebFOCUS analytics platform enables blockchain applications to turn raw data into instant insights, while our Omni-Gen data management platform enforces consistency and standardization within blockchain applications, helping customers to easily integrate many types of applications, databases, and computing platforms onto Hyperledger Fabric. We look forward to working with Hyperledger.”

    Sempre IT

    “At Sempre IT, we are on a journey to enable our clients and partners in the development of new digital disruptive business models, and The Linux Foundation is aligned with our objectives, considering all the blockchain ecosystem provided by Hyperledger,” said Thiago Azevedo, CTO of Sempre IT. “The capabilities of a modular blockchain and its permissioned operation mode have a huge impact on the consensus strategy of the ledger. We are excited to be the first Brazilian partner of Hyperledger, improving our services of designing smart contracts and supporting the infrastructure components and the functional and performance tests of the blockchain.”

    United Traders

    “We are veterans of financial markets and have developed top notch software packages for professional traders, algorithmic trading, and market-making,” said Dmitry Belousov, Partner at United Traders. “We’ve been studying blockchain technology since 2013 and see it as promising and highly appreciate its potential for further development. Becoming a member of Hyperledger, a consortium unifying leaders of financial progress is a big step for us. This step gives us opportunities for cooperation, exchange of technologies and building new partnerships.”

    YDreams Global

    “We are proud to be part of this important movement that Hyperledger is leading,” said Daniel Japiassu, CEO of YDreams Global. “Blockchain is a necessity for our products and joining Hyperledger is part of our growth strategy as it will positively affect Arkave and several other initiatives. In order to have the fastest network of VR gaming arenas in the world, we need to combine efforts with Hyperledger and the amazing community they have.

Tmux Commands

screen and tmux

A comparison of the features (or more-so just a table of notes for accessing some of those features) for GNU screen and BSD-licensed tmux.

The formatting here is simple enough to understand (I would hope). ^ means ctrl+, so ^x is ctrl+x. M- means meta (generally left-alt or escape)+, so M-x is left-alt+x

It should be noted that this is no where near a full feature-set of either group. This - being a cheat-sheet - is just to point out the most very basic features to get you on the road.

Trust the developers and manpage writers more than me. This document is originally from 2009 when tmux was still new - since then both of these programs have had many updates and features added (not all of which have been dutifully noted here).
