Ethereum Now On Hyperledger Fabric

Hyperledger Fabric now supports Ethereum according to a recent blog post from the team at Hyperledger. According to the report, Hyperledger Fabric now supports Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) bytecode smart contracts and now – contracts can now be written in languages such as Solidity or Vyper. Along with introducing a new smart contract runtime, Fabric also has a corresponding web3 provider which can be used to develop decentralized applications (DApps) using web3.js. This new feature comes as part of the 1.3 release and is motivated with the goal to enable developers to be able to migrate or create DApps for a permissioned platform.

From the report:

“Our next goals include enabling smart contract events, and expanding the Fab3 support so that clients such as Remix and Truffle can be used to interact with Fabric. We are also looking for other aspects of the Ethereum ecosystem that can be adopted. This new feature is also a topic of one of the workshops at Hyperledger Global Forum in Basel, Switzerland this December. Come join us and bring your EVM smart contracts and DApps to play with.
