Nov 3, 2022 - Building Hyperledger Fabric Smart Contracts using Solidity and the EVM

Building Hyperledger Fabric Smart Contracts using Solidity and the EVM

an online technical workshop that looks at how to build smart contracts for Hyperledger Fabric using Solidity and Fabric's Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM).

The workshop will be run by Jim Sullivan, Chief Technology Officer and Lead Instructor at The Blockchain Academy, and will cover the following topics:

  • Hyperledger Fabric product architecture, including the EVM/Solidity components.
  • Smart Contract Development demo
  • Solidity Smart Contract Examples
  • Why use the EVM for HyperLedger Fabric applications
  • Use Remix for building Smart Contracts
  • Solidity.
  • Data types.
  • Functions and Accessibility, i.e., public, private.
  • Deployment Demonstration
  • Distributed Application (DApp) demonstration
  • Possible Next Steps.

Aug 12 - Digital Asset & CBDC Legislation Trends - Jim Mason

Many countries and states are looking at options to regulate digital assets and CBDC ( Central Bank Digital Currencies ). In some cases, digital asset legislation is now law. Digital asset legislation may include: CBDC, cryptocurrencies, stable coins, NFTs ( Non-fungible tokens ) and other forms of digital assets as well as the exchanges, marketplaces, custodians and service providers where they are sold and traded. These bills and laws can have a major impact on how these digital assets are used, valued and traded now and in the future for investments, commerce and payments.

For each category of digital assets, we'll: define the asset type, use cases, privacy and key related legislation sections

Some of the legislation we'll cover includes: 

  • MICA - the Markets in Crypto Assets proposal passed by the European Parliament
  • The State of Wyoming Digital Assets Legislation in force since 2019
  • The US Executive Action on Responsible Development of Digital Assets ( March 9, 2022 )
  • the US Lummis-Gillibrand Digital Assets Bill

Speaker - Jim Mason

Initial discussion on US CBDC follow up from the US Executive Order ( March 2022 )

and Project Lithium looking at use of CBDC for securities settlement

March 25 - Review of the US Executive Order on Digital Assets - Jim Mason

 Date - March 25,  10 AM EST

Jim Mason lead a review and group discussion on the new US Executive Order from President Biden.

While Federal Agencies have been monitoring Digital Assets, markets and CBDC for several years, this order accelerates a focus in many directions to study and provide recommendations this year to define new legislation that will radically alter the landscape of Digital Assets, Crypto and CBDC and other financial services once those recommendations are enacted.

We'll also talk briefly about research papers the group can work on as part of the 2022 Hyperledger Challenge.

  1. Government, NGO and industry use of solutions that use or can benefit from blockchain
  2. Regulation of blockchain solutions, standards and related technologies
  3. Blockchain Technology Concepts: blockchain evolves and we'll review key Hyperledger technology projects
  4. The 2022 Hyperledger Challenge discussion

Speaker Presentations

  • world leaders in blockchain solutions, technologies, research and Public Sector solutions

Forum Discussions

  • This year I'd like to try some open forum discussions where we focus on a topic or theme as a group 


  • Opportunity to consolidate research on a specific topics and produce reports as a team
  • Candidate research areas include:  blockchain-related regulations, public solutions using NFTs

  • No labels
