Hyperledger, the umbrella venture of open-source blockchains and related devices, has declared that it has acknowledged eight new individuals and propelled another task concentrating on new foundation for decentralized personality. This incorporates the Ethereum Foundation and Microsoft.
The Ethereum Foundation is proud to lend our support to the efforts of both the @EntEthAlliance and @Hyperledger through our membership today. Together, we'll continue to drive forward #Ethereum's progress and adoption.

The official chief of Hyperledger, Brian Behlendorf stated:
The mix of blue chip technology companies, international organizations, logistics and manufacturing players and academia that have joined us from point around the world show the widespread interest and investment in open source enterprise blockchain technologies. This broad-based involvement is what drives our expanding portfolio of open source projects, which are fully conceived, developed and advanced by the ever-growing Hyperledger community.
A nearly turn off task from Hyperledger will be Hyperledger Aries following Ursa, which gives a library progressed cryptographic activities solidified from other Hyperledger ventures. With Aries, this task pursues crafted by Indy to give a convention on a decentralized personality.
The declaration expresses, that Aries goal is to:
Provide code for peer-to-peer interaction, secrets management, verifiable information exchange, and secure messaging for different decentralized systems… Foster practical interoperability in support of ongoing standards work and extend the applicability of technologies developed within Indy beyond its current community components from the Hyperledger stack into a single, effective business solution.
The Chief Trust Officer at Evernym explains that Aries is different from the Indy project:
When it first began, the Hyperledger Indy project included code for all three of the lower layers…This was very powerful, but also somewhat overwhelming for new developers. And it gave the impression that layers 2 and 3 were tied to the Hyperledger Indy permissioned blockchain code at layer 1.
