posted 21 days ago
Japanese IT firm Fujitsu has developed a new blockchain-based system for securely exchanging data.

Announced on its corporate blog, the release is aimed at companies and organizations that want to exchange data safely but may not have a central hub for doing so. The system’s unveiling comes months after Fujitsu debuted a blockchain product centered around secure document exchange.

Fujitsu is a member of the Linux Foundation-led Hyperledger blockchain consortium, and according to the firm, the system is based on the open-source Hyperledger Fabric.

Fujitsu said it will be holding a demonstration later this week at an event in Tokyo. The plan, the firm said, is to launch a commercial-scale version of the system later this year.
