Webinar overview – Introduction to Hyperledger Sawtooth: An open-source enterprise blockchain platform

Blockchain, the universally distributed open ledger system has gained visibility and acceptance in multiple industries – BFSI, retail, healthcare, logistics, real estate to name a few. Blockchain is an innovative mix of decades-old, tried and tested technologies including:

  • Public key cryptography (1970s)
  • Cryptographic hash functions (1970s)
  • Proof-of-work (1990s).

Over the years many blockchain systems have been developed – Hyperledger Sawtooth, Hyperledger Fabric, R3 Corda, Ripple, Quorum, and more. Among these systems, Hyperledger is Developed and maintained by Linux Foundation, an umbrella organization, that maintains various open-source blockchains

Hyperledger has been used in various industries:

  • Walmart brought unprecedented transparency to the food supply chain with Hyperledger Fabric
  • Honeywell Aerospace creates online parts marketplace with Hyperledger Fabric
  • ScanTrust Brought Transparency to the Supply Chain with Hyperledger Sawtooth

In our recent webinar, Shripada Hebbar, our Principal Technical Architect, simplified the concept of blockchain and helped participants understand how Hyperledger Sawtooth can be implemented for businesses – with a live demo.
