Our blockchain journey looks a little like this…

Chainyard’s Senior Vice President of Consulting, Isaac Kunkel, was invited to guest post over at IBM’s Blockchain Unleashed blog this week. In his post, Isaac looks back on the journey that Chainyard has taken within the realm of blockchain, and our experience with using Hyperledger Fabric.

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

One famous proverb states that “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” In this proverb we learn that something which takes time begins with an initial action. For most, the blockchain journey starts with the adrenaline fueled feelings associated with trading cryptocurrency. For IT People Corporation, it began with an opportunity to contribute to The Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Fabric open source project starting in late 2015.

The team was assembled to help build and support the infrastructure necessary to develop the early releases of Fabric. In partnership with IBM, the framework for continuous integration and  testing, along with other development, performance test and support activities, were built.

With contributions by dozens of engineers and companies, the early releases started to come together allowing early, pre-release solutions to be initiated, first with release 0.3, then release 0.5 in March 2016 and then with the first official release of 0.6 in September 2016.
