Introduction to Distributed Ledgers
Blockchain is revolutionizing the way organizations are conducting transactions.
What is a Distributed Ledger?
Distributed Ledger is a kind of database that can be replicated, shared and synchronized among the network members. The ledger records the exchanges among the network participants. These participants thereby govern and agree to the records. No mediator third-party is involved in between. Every record has a timestamp with an auditable history of all each and every transaction in the network.

Business networks unite together where every participant exercise their rights on assets, the object values. Business uses multiple ledgers to ack assets and ownership among the participants.

Hyperledger fabric carries modular architecture that enables flexible and scalable blockchain solutions for the business.
Hyperledger composer is a free, open source tool for prototyping, defining and testing a blockchain network
and designing applications for it.
