The Italian Postal Service announces joining the Hyperledger Blockchain community

The Italian Postal service, Poste Italiane, has announced that it is joining the Hyperledger blockchain community, per a press release on January 29.

Hyperledger, being established by the Linux foundation to create open source standards for distributed ledger technology and blockchain, can add the Poste Italiane to their growing list of users. The users that already take advantage of the platform include American Express, Cisco, Intel, JPMorgan, Deloitte, Huawei and more.

The idea to join Hyperledger is a part of their Deliver 2022 Business Plan. This business plan also involves the acquisition and acceleration of new technology in the agency’s operations. Implementing Hyperledger is also a response to data protection and the issues that may go along with it. They state that blockchain tech is “an effective response to the problems of security, transparency, interoperability and privacy.”

Fedex, the courier delivery industry heavyweight also joined Hyperledger late last year. CEO Fred Smith believes that blockchain in supply chains has “big implications in supply chain, transportation and logistics.”

Just this last week a Italian Senate committee set forth and approved an amendment on blockchain industry regulation. This amendment is to create definitions for distributed ledger based technologies and smart contracts.
