Blockchain Development Made Easy: Getting Started with Hyperledger Iroha


Our ‘Blockchain development made easy’ series continues with Hyperledger Iroha, a simple blockchain platform you can use to make trusted, secure, and fast applications. What are the advantages and how can developers get started with it? We talked to Makoto Takemiya, co-founder and co-CEO of Soramitsu about what’s under this project’s hood.

JAXenter: Is Hyperledger Iroha some sort of supplement to Fabric and Sawtooth? How does that work?

Makoto Takemiya: Hyperledger Iroha is an open-source, distributed ledger supported by an open source community of developers. Hyperledger Iroha has its own technical properties and vision that is equally important to the vision and technical characteristics of other blockchain platforms governed by the Hyperledger Project, run by the Linux Foundation. There are numerous use cases and different applications, so all platforms are important for the users to be able to test and select the blockchain platform that performs best in their specific use case.

Iroha contributes to the diversity of the Hyperledger frameworks. Hyperledger Iroha is written in C++ and has a small set of commands and queries focused on enabling financial applications, digital asset management, and digital identity use-cases for enterprises of any size.
