In this live demonstration, Nick Gaski will show you how to add an organization by updating the config block for an already running Hyperledger Fabric network.

Building Blockchain networks takes time and effort. It covers multiple tasks from initial network creation to creation of governance rules with added complexity of coordination across multiple organizations.Onboarding new member orgs to an already running network can be done using hyperledger fabric but can be a significant effort as it the configuration blocks must be updated and manually signed from all the appropriate members. Fortunately using the IBM Blockchain Platform you can accomplish member onboarding in a matter of seconds with significantly more features/value/capability such as the GUI, with notification flags and click of a button approvals.

During the demo call they will showcase what it’s like to onboard a new members to your business network with and without the IBM Blockchain Platform.

Topic From Mega-Watts to Mega-Bucks with Blockchain

Description

Renewable energy projects are taking off around the world, and many fundamentally require a way to record a ledger of activities and transactions between the varied participants – e.g. residential customers wishing to sell excess generated renewable energy back to the grid, regulators seeking to monitor and maintain energy quality, and local utilities interested in aggregating customers into ‘virtual power plants’.

Based on a real project that is currently underway, this week’s session will feature an interactive demo designed to immerse participants in the world of energy trading with Blockchain, and introduce a future in which energy can power a dynamic marketplace for turning megawatts into megabucks (or virtually anything else!).

Hyperledger Architecture, Volume 1 and Hyperledger Fabric Documentation

FYI – following Hyperledger Workgroup whitepaper and Hyperledger-Fabric documentation are very helpful to keep me updated.
