Hyperlegder Grid

Project Health

Health is good.  Sponsors along with new contributors have begun design work including collaborating on the initial RFCs.  Monthly contributor calls have generated further interest.  Several contributors have agreed to collaborate on Grid design and implementation via agile sprints leveraging the community tools provided by Hyperledger.


The contributors are currently working on defining cross-company sprint planning activities. As part of this, the team needs to decide whether to use JIRA or Github Issues. This discussion is on-going. Community input is welcome on #grid.


No prior releases.
