IBM have teamed up with blockchain startup Hacera as a founder member of the firm’s new blockchain registry. The concept, called the “Unbounded Registry”, will act like a blockchain yellow pages, listing a range of decentralized platforms across different network. The concept is designed to provide firms and investors with the opportunity to get a better overview of the projects they could potentially participate in. It will also give private listings a chance to raise their profiles.
In a blog post yesterday (September 13th), IBM Vice President Jerry Cuomo wrote:
Today, I am proud and excited to announce that we have joined the HACERA Unbounded Registry as a founding member. As the number of blockchain consortiums, networks and applications continues to grow we need a means to list them and make them known to the world, in order to unleash the power of blockchain. The Unbounded Registry, built on blockchain technology, provides a decentralized means to register, look up, join and transact across a variety of blockchain solutions, built to interoperate with all of today’s popular distributed ledger technologies, including The Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Fabric, Hyperledger Sawtooth, R3 Corda, EEA Quorum, Stellar Network and more.
The registry is already live, listing a wide range of projects from giants such as Huawei, Hitachi and Intel. Information provided about each project currently takes the form of a descriptive overview and a latest news tab, with the option to create an account to create a watch list, join projects and even contact the project owners directly. On the future of this projet, Cuomo said, “By working with HACERA and other members of Unbounded Registry, we see a future where consumers and providers of blockchain services will be able to discover each other and begin transacting in a more secure way and where technology providers and consumers can innovate and integrate to create limitless and unbounded possibilities.”
