Subject: Invitation to Join Hyperledger Social Impact Special Interest Group
Hyperledger has a Social Impact Special Interest Group that anyone can join and participate in that brings together representatives from organizations focused on applying distributed ledger technology, and Hyperledger technologies in particular, to the social impact uses and needs.
We've worked on forming a core group of participants, but are always looking to ensure we have diverse representation of geography, organizations, and how blockchain is being used. Our top-level mission is to identify specific opportunities for open source software development projects which could help various actors move more quickly on use cases with high potential to positively impact social good. Those efforts could be built upon existing Hyperledger code bases, but are not limited to that. To get started, we need to talk openly and frankly about what can be done, and how to move forward in a thoughtful and coherent manner that strives to promote best practices and works to avoid missed opportunities.
