Over the past year the meaning of a “Blockchain” has changed as many blockchains have become focused on solving a business problem and the original crypto currencies do not have the platform that meets an enterprise need. Hyperledger offers the best selection of parts that can then be selected to build an enterprise application. Why a “Blockchain” application does have to all be from a single entity like Ethereum or Bitcoin. James and Bill will show how Taekion is using multiple components including Hyperledger Sawtooth, Ursa, Transact, and new components they will be proposing to the Hyperledger community to build a new composable distributed application that showcases why a compassable app is the future in 2020 and beyond. This presentation will showcase why Hyperledger is the perfect community to find, build & use these components to build the new vision of a distributed blockchain.
