Project Health

Health is good. Last quarter’s goal was to get Grid running on another back-end platform, Splinter . Splinter is a privacy-focused platform for distributed applications that provides a blockchain-inspired networking environment for communication and transactions between organizations. It is now possible to run Grid on Splinter using experimental Splinter Docker images. This confirms a pattern for future back-end platforms that support running smart contracts with Hyperledger Transact . Community interactions are typically done via Hyperledger Chat discussions.

Questions/Issues for the TSC
