Project and Ecosystem News

New Project: Hyperledger Solang 
The Hyperledger Technical Steering committee approved a new project, Hyperledger Solang, which is a compiler for Solidity source code and targets different blockchains. The Solidity programming language is the most popular language for smart contracts, and there is clear interest from many blockchains to have support for it. Although some blockchains emulate an EVM environment to maintain compatibility with Solidity built with Solc, they then cannot access features that are missing from Ethereum. Hyperledger Solan offers the ability to compile Solidity to the native execution environment, opening up access to new features and creating many possibilities for innovation in the Solidity language.

Currently, Hyperledger Solang supports Solana and Polkadot (Substrate).

Hyperledger FireFly 1.1 Release
new Hyperledger FireFly release, version 1.1, includes new functionality that makes it possible for FireFly users to deploy multiple blockchain applications connecting to multiple chains from a single console. The FireFly Supernode now supports two operation modes: Web3 Gateway and Consortium. Web3 Gateway mode configures the FireFly Supernode to connect to a number of chains with transaction orchestration and state indexing. A revamped and expanded connector framework now includes EVMconnect, a robust connector for simple connection management to public blockchains with templates available for Ethereum, Polygon, Avalanche, Optimism, BNB Chain, and more. Consortium mode activates a number of capabilities for FireFly nodes to connect in a B2B network and exchange data through off-chain and on-chain rails. FireFly also now supports multi-tenancy through the use of namespaces. These new features enable enterprises to accelerate their web3 adoption.

Creation of Hyperledger Cacti 
In a Hyperledger first, the community has decided to merge two systems (architectures as well as code bases). Hyperledger Cactus and Weaver, a Hyperledger Lab, will come together to be Hyperledger Cacti, a multi-faceted interoperability platform that will draw on the cutting-edge technical features of Cactus and Weaver and provide a clear path forward for users of both technologies.

Hyperledger Besu Client Incentive Program Kicks Off
The Ethereum Foundation (EF) has opted to include Hyperledger Besu in the Execution Layer Client Incentive Program (ELCIP) to foster the community development of enterprise-grade blockchain software. The program, which kicks off with the Merge, will provide execution-layer client teams with locked ETH in the form of live validators to be released according to certain milestones, including post-merge performance and progress towards enabling withdrawals from the beacon chain.

Hyperledger Besu is one of the top three most popular Ethereum execution clients according to Ethernode. EF is making this strategic investment to engage the Hyperledger Besu community in ensuring a diversity of clients and overall health of the network.

“The diverse community is what makes Ethereum special, empowering from builders in underserved or emerging economies to leading enterprises and beyond,” said Aya Miyaguchi, Executive Director at Ethereum Foundation. “Similarly a diverse client distribution helps keep Ethereum distributed and healthy, and I applaud the Hyperledger Besu team for their Execution Layer work for Ethereum, and wish you all a great Global Forum this year.”

New, Free “Getting Started with Self-Sovereign Identity” Course
To make it easier for enterprises to implement Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) to put their users at the center of their digital identity, Linux Foundation Training & Certification has released a new online training course, Getting Started with Self-Sovereign Identity (LFS178x). The free, six-to-seven hour course is geared to business and government decision makers looking to get started with SSI on a solid foundation. The course provides a 360 degree overview of its evolutionary journey, key concepts, standards, technological building blocks, use cases, real-world examples and implementation considerations.

Trace Labs is driving radical transparency and trust in agri-food supply chains with OriginTrail and Oracle


Transparency and trust are crucial for well-performing and sustainable agri-food supply chains. Yet, in too many food supply chains both are lacking. Using the OriginTrail Decentralized Knowledge Graph and Oracle Blockchain PlatformTrace Labs has recently launched a solution to drive radical trust and process optimization in agri-food supply chains with the use of distributed ledger technologies (DLTs). The solution is used to set up automated trusted payments for milk to help optimize a dairy supply chain as part of SmartAgriHubs (SAH), the largest EU-funded project focusing on digitizing the European agri-food sector.

Almost one-third of global food manufacturers cannot guarantee that the ingredients they use are not fraudulent. The root cause is insufficient data exchange due to a lack of trust between different organizations. As such, data is often stored in silos at every point in the supply chain, which is a significant barrier to effective traceability and overall transparency.

Trace Labs is actively tackling this problem with unique solutions built on the open-source OriginTrail Decentralized Knowledge Graph (DKG). With the use of the OriginTrail DKG, crucial data from stakeholders across the supply chains can be connected and secured from manipulation through semantic web and blockchain technologies. Trusted and connected linked data is then used in different web applications to improve the traceability of products, increase trust, and help optimize every stage of the supply chain management process.

When a problem such as contamination is discovered, the solution enables quick discovery of the product trail end-to-end. With all the data interconnected and accessible, it is easier to track and trace the root cause of any problem that may occur. This drives down the costs of recalls and prevents food waste. The solution also provides an excellent technological infrastructure for deploying other kinds of trusted solutions for optimizing agri-food value chains, like trusted and automated payments in dairy and other value chains.

Optimizing dairy value chains with OriginTrail and Oracle technology

Milk payment is a complex process and the price of milk paid to a farmer depends on multiple factors. The quality of the milk, the quantity of the shipment, and negotiated margins all play a part in every single delivery that farmers make. Additionally, these deliveries are taken in and processed by different organizations, like farmers, agricultural cooperatives, dairies, and testing laboratories. All of this means that the current way of handling payments towards the farmers still involves significant manual effort to verify all inputs and ensure the right process is respected.

To help optimize this process, Trace Labs paired OriginTrail with the smart contract capabilities of Oracle Hyperledger Fabric to deliver a solution that showcases how blockchain-based technologies can improve efficiency, safety, and trust in food supply chains without interrupting the existing business processes. Using the two systems, the milk payment mechanism that Trace Labs developed enables automatic calculation of payments due to each of the farmers based on the trusted milk processing data stored on the OriginTrail Decentralized Network (ODN) and the contractual data stored in the Hyperledger Fabric.

Notably, the new system in no way changes the current IT landscape, nor the existing business processes. Rather, it treats both as key data sources and a starting point for improvement. Each of the involved IT systems (the dairy ERP, the cooperative ERP, and the cooperative contractual data) exports data in its existing format, Trace Labs’ solution restructures the data for interoperability and prepares it for publishing on the OriginTrail DKG.

Since a lot of the included data is very business-sensitive, data access control and permissioning is handled with great care. Critical data is kept in the secure private store of the OriginTrail node subgraph with only key integrity-assuring data points published to the public DKG (metadata for indexing and cryptographic proofs for data validation). Once the cooperative is ready to make the payment, the required payment data is taken out of the Oracle Hyperledger Fabric blockchain and restructured into a payment file.

Combining all components, Trace Labs was able to entirely automate the payment system by simultaneously increasing the integrity level of the entire process and the accountability of each supply chain partner for the parts that they are responsible for. The solution was initially deployed in the scope of the Smart Agri Hubs project supported by the European Union (EU) under Horizon 2020 research and innovation program.

OriginTrail – combining data integrity, confidentiality and connectivity for supply chain transparency and trust

The implemented solutions prove that effective and efficient blockchain solutions can be built on top of existing IT infrastructure enabling systems interoperability and linked data. There was no need for costly rip-and-replace of existing IT infrastructure for any of the stakeholders in the respective value chains when implementing the solutions.

Importantly, by enabling the users of the solutions to combine both the integrity of public networks and the confidentiality of private ones, Trace Labs ensures that agri-food stakeholders can extract tangible benefits from using blockchain-based technologies. Namely, making sure their supply chains are more efficient, more transparent, and more sustainable. All things which increase the long-term viability of their business and allow for a greater value proposition.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 818182.


WeBank Named in Gartner “The China Blockchain Service Network: A New Digital Infrastructure to Accelerate and Challenge Digital Commerce Globally”

WeBank named in Gartner’s report “The China Blockchain Service Network: A New Digital Infrastructure to Accelerate and Challenge Digital Commerce Globally”1 in 2020.

According to Gartner1, “The China blockchain service network (BSN) is a technical infrastructure designed to support and enable the majority of blockchain applications in the Chinese market and provide the backbone infrastructure for commercial activity. It can be regarded as a new internet protocol to facilitate trusted data, value and asset sharing between computer nodes. Gartner believes that from a policy objective, the BSN aims, in particular, to accelerate smart city developments — including activities involving Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), payments, government processes and the digital silk road initiative.”

As in 2019, together with Hyperledger Fabric, WeBank’s consortium blockchain platform FISCO BCOS has joined the BSN as the only two officially certified licensing frameworks. The adaption of FISCO BCOS on BSN was completed in April 2020. Currently, many projects within the FISCO BCOS ecosystem are selected for BSN’s official designated applications.

Gartner also identified WeBank as a sample vendor in terms of blockchain in government in the Hype Cycle for Smart City and Sustainability in China, 20202. In 2020, WeBank applied its open-source blockchain technologies to on application scenarios, such as “The Green Mobility Inclusive Platform.” It aims to effectively promote the trusted data circulation and integration of public welfare data, helping to enhance the efficiency of industry-wide collaboration.

Also, responding to the global challenge of COVID-19, WeBank has actively fulfilled its social responsibilities. With its open source blockchain technology, WeBank supported the mutual recognition of cross-border blockchain health code between Guangdong and Macau. By the end of December 2020, the health code system has supported 300,000 daily customs clearances and a cumulative total of 38 million customs clearances, which greatly helped the resumption of work and production during the pandemic.
