Hyperledger Fabric, owned by Linux Foundation, is an open-source project aiming to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. The program is worldwide and enjoys the participation of leaders in finance, IoT (Internet of Things), manufacturing, supply chains, and technology (even beyond blockchain). Now, Hyperledger Fabric supports Ethereum (ETH) Virtual Machine.
In the background of the recent integration of the ETH VM within the Hyperledger Fabric, there is the partnership between the Hyperledger Fabric and the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA). The deal was announced in early-October when the two projects became Associate Members.
“Our two organizations have similar objectives, such as broadening and strengthening the community around and the adoption of enterprise blockchain technologies. What we hope to get across to the public is that anyone who ever put a ‘versus’ between EEA and Hyperledger got it wrong; it’s now conclusively ‘EEA AND Hyperledger,'” said the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) regarding the partnership with Hyperledger Fabric.
Now, less than one month after the deal between the two, Hyperledger Fabric announced that it supports Ethereum (ETH) Virtual Machine. According to the official announcement on this achievement, Hyperledger Fabric supports the Ethereum (ETH) Virtual Machine (EVM) bytecode smart contracts which can be written in “solidity” or “vyper” programming languages and also comes with the ability to develop Decentralized Applications (DApps) using web3.js.
However, that’s not all! Hyperledger Fabric team now works on enabling smart contract events and broadening the support for clients such as Remix and Truffle which could be used to interact with the Fabric soon.
Additionally, many other features of the Ethereum (ETH) ecosystems are currently researched by Hyperledger Fabric team for adoption.
For the moment, Hyperledger Fabric only implemented the support for the Ethereum (ETH) Virtual Machine, but it would be interesting, therefore, to see more ETH features implemented into the Hyperledger Fabric.
