Title

Design Effectively operational system to Customize and Manage Blockchain Network

Status

PROJECT COMPLETED

Difficulty

 MEDIUM  

Description

Cello is aiming to resolve the following challenges, 1) Facilitate creation of blockchain network,
can help user without blockchain background to setup their network quickly. 2) Security, need
to implement mechanism to protect key pairs. 3) Cross organization communication, can connect
blockchain networks among multiple organizations. This project targets to design and implement
a practical operational system equipping with functionalities to solve above challenges, based on
Hyperledger Cello code base.
