Microsoft is joining Hyperledger blockchain community in order to expand its Blockchain efforts and opportunities.

Recently, Microsoft announced that it has joined Hyperledger community, a Linux Foundation community that focuses on open source implementations of the emerging specifications and standards for blockchain and distributed ledgers.
Microsoft said that it has been a founding member of both the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) and the Token Taxonomy Initiative (TTI), and a key contributor in standards and specification efforts. Now, seeing the growing maturity of these specifications, the company wants to take the next step of the journey with its colleagues in the blockchain community and work together on delivering open source implementations of these specifications.

According to the company, developing standards and open specifications, and collaborating on implementations of them, is critical to removing customer blockers and accelerating blockchain as a mainstream technology. Through its work in EEA and TTI, the company has found many opportunities for itself to lean in and contribute code in project areas like tokens, ledger integration, and developer experience.
