French airplane firm Airbus joined Hyperledger Blockchain Project, or the Linux Foundation program related to the distributed ledger.

Airbus joined Hyperledger Blockchain Project

Last year Airbus sold more than 1,000 aircraft and now the company is joining the same blockchain project that also sees the participation of firms such as IBM, Red Hat, Intel and JPMorgan. 
Hyperledger director Brian Behlendorf explained to Coindesk how the Airbus partnership shows that the distributed ledger technology has lots of applications beyond fintech:
“A key factor to the project’s success will be member expertise and guidance, and as such, I look forward to collaborating with the bright team at Airbus to drive this technology forward.”

Blockchain beyond finance

This announcement reflects how the airline industry is increasing its own interest in the blockchain technology. 
Previously in May, in fact, the blockchain startup called ShoCard started a partnership with the airline firm SITA with the goal of developing new applications for identity management.
This is not the first time a company wants to use the Blockchain for identity-related issues. 
A few months ago, in fact, we spoke about the Microsoft’s project that aims at using the distributed ledger to solve problems related to identity in the digital world. 

The Hyperledger Blockchain Project

Launched in the beginning of 2016, the Hyperledger Project has more than 80 members among its partners and it is managed by the Linux Foundation.
