The Hyperledger Architecture Work Group (AWG) is a technical workgroup focused on developing an architectural framework for Enterprise class distributed ledgers, towards convergence on a modular architecture. This includes identifying common and critical components, providing a functional decomposition of an Enterprise blockchain stack into component layers and modules, regularizing interfaces between the components, and interoperability between ledgers.

The AWG serves as a cross-project forum for architects and technologists from the Hyperledger community to exchange ideas and explore alternate architectural options, discuss the tradeoffs, and capture the reasoning behind the choices. The AWG provides recommendations and architectural guidance to the projects under the Hyperledger greenhouse and encourages them towards convergence on a modular architecture. The AWG invites individual Hyperledger projects for architecture and design review to benefit from the expertise from the community as well as to shape the architectural direction of Hyperledger.


Please see Charter for the full text of the charter.


The scope is technical and focused on architecture of Enterprise blockchains. For the most part the focus is on the functional (“the what”) aspects of the components, leaving design and implementation (“the how”) to the individual projects.

  1. Is there a discussion forum to ask/answer questions? 

  2. Hi,

    I am a new enthusiastic member eagerly waiting to contribute for the development. How do i get information about architecture conference meetings. Please share us the information. Thank you in advance.
