Bank of France & Central Bank of Nigeria Join Hyperledger Global Forum 2022

Hyperledger Foundation has announced new participants of its Hyperledger Global Forum 2022, which is taking place Sept. 12-14 in Dublin, Ireland.

The list of attendees now includes Digital Identity Laboratory of Canada, Banque de France, Central Bank of Nigeria, CasperLabs, and DSR Corporation. 

Hyperledger Global Forum 2022, which is being held Sept. 12-14 in Dublin, Ireland, is described as an annual “global enterprise event” with over 100 speakers and 700 attendees, with technical and enterprise aspects and applications of the technology being the main focus of the event.

Hyperledger signifies the importance of new members, especially governmental agencies, joining the event: “Our newest members bring a diversity of innovation and experience into the Hyperledger community.”

Hyperledger Foundation is a nonprofit organization aimed at incentivizing a conversation and collaboration around open-source blockchain software technologies. 

CasperLabs, an open source enterprise solutions platform, is among the newly added members, explains the decision to join the event, and shares that the company’s enterprise-grade production solution for cross-chain transactions will go live in a few months.

“We are joining Hyperledger Foundation because we are committed to advancing blockchain interoperability to support enterprise operations. We’ve already found great success working with IBM to demonstrate the first atomic cross-chain swap of fungible tokens between an instance of a Hyperledger Fabric permissioned network and the Casper Blockchain at Davos 2022,” Medha Parlikar, co-founder & CTO, CasperLabs says.

Growing interest among Countries

Banks all over the world have become a part of the discussion surrounding the digital assets industry. 

In July, France’s central bank announced it was accelerating its program for a wholesale central bank digital currency (CBDC).

The bank also said it was getting ready to support the European Union’s pilot for tokenized securities’ distributed ledger technology, which is expected to launch in March 2023.

Meanwhile, Nigeria’s interest in cryptocurrency seems to be growing. A recent survey shows that Nigerians are leading in the number of Google trends and searches for digital currency. 
Binance, the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchange in terms of trading volume, is also expanding its presence in the region. The exchange has recently partnered with Nigerian authorities to create a virtual free digital economy area, similar to Dubai virtual zones. The “goal is to engender a flourishing virtual free zone to take advantage of a near trillion dollar virtual economy in blockchains and digital economy, Adesoji Adesugba, Managing Director at Nigeria Export Processing Zones Authority, commented on the initiative.
