IBM Joins Initiative To Create Catalog Of Blockchain Projects
IBM has joined the initiative to create a catalog for blockchain projects, similar to a directory Yellow Pages, according to the information published on the company’s official website.
The representatives of the HACERA startup will develop a solution called Unbounded Registry, thus focusing on the problems of searching, registering, and classifying blockchain-based projects, including Hyperledger Fabric by the Linux Foundation, Hyperledger Sawtooth, R3 Corda, EEA Quorum, Stellar Network, and others.
The project will embrace the core issues in this area, including reserved names for solutions, detection of blockchain networks and apps, as well as a catalog of concrete domain-specific services and functions. In addition to IBM, Intel, Huawei, Batavia, Hitachi, and the Australian Blockchain Association will take part in the project.
In the first half of the 19th century, the first Yellow Pages facilitated companies in their efforts to make a name. At the end of the last century, however, the Internet started to serve the functions of the directory which contains all the information about the companies. Blockchain is the third wave of new technologies which has to be extensively popularized, IBM postulates.
IBM is known for its involvement in blockchain-based projects in various spheres of activity. In early September, the company announced the implementation of the Blockchain World Wire project to create an international financial network based on the Stellar protocol.
