The Hyperledger Project (HLP) is a collaborative effort created to advance blockchain technology by identifying and addressing important features for a cross-industry open standard for distributed ledgers that can transform the way business transactions are conducted globally. The Project is a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project and implements many open source best practices familiar to other leading projects.
To facilitate an open ecosystem, the Hyperledger Project was structured with an open governance model.
The Technical Steering Committee (TSC) will provide leadership regarding the technical direction of the Hyperledger Project.
The Governing Board will manage business leadership for the Hyperledger Project including governance, marketing and operational decisions.
Brian Behlendorf serves as the Executive Director of the Hyperledger Project. Working in close collaboration with, and under the direction of, the Governing Board, Brian sets the technical and community vision for the Project and drives its global growth.

The Mission of HLP is to:
a. create an enterprise grade, open source distributed ledger framework and code base, upon which users can build and run robust, industry-specific applications, platforms and hardware systems to support business transactions.
b. create an open source, technical community to benefit the ecosystem of HLP solution providers and users, focused on blockchain and shared ledger use cases that will work across a variety of industry solutions;
c. promote participation of leading members of the ecosystem, including developers, service and solution providers and end users; and
d. host the infrastructure for HLP, establishing a neutral home for community infrastructure, meetings, events and collaborative discussions and providing structure around the business and technical governance of HLP.
