The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is among eight new members who have joined the Linux Foundation’s enterprise blockchain ecosystem as associate members.
By joining the forum, the CBN “will be able to demonstrate technical leadership, collaborate and network with other players while raising awareness around their efforts in the enterprise blockchain community.”
A statement signed by Hyperledger noted that the CBN uses Hyperledger Fabric as part of its research programs and production solutions for its CBDC, the eNaira.
Other members named on the list include CasperLabs, Banque de France, Digital Identity Laboratory of Canada, and DSR Corporation.
