The Hyperledger project, the blockchain initiative led by the Linux Foundation, has elected a new technical steering committee (TSC).

Launched late last year, the Hyperledger Project to date counts more than 40 established companies and startups among its membership. Voting for the body concluded earlier this week following a previously announced election period.

Among those who retained positions are R3CEV CTO Richard Gendal Brown; Digital Asset Holdings chief ledger architect Tamas Blummer; Fujitsu researcher Hart Montgomery; Intel engineer Mic Bowman; and IBM Open Technology CTO Christopher Ferris, who served as the committee's first chairman.

New members include Arnaud Le Hors, senior technical lead for IBM; IBM blockchain fabric chief architect Binh Nguyen; Intel venture technical lead Dan Middleton; London Stock Exchange principal architect Greg Haskins; DTCC senior enterprise architect Murali Krishna Katipalli; and Salesforce software engineer Sheehan Anderson.

With the election concluded, work now turns to electing a new TSC chairman. The nomination process, which began yesterday, runs through 31st August.

Voting begins on 1st September, with the results expected to be announced one week later on 8th September. Like with the previous vote, the TSC chair election will utilize Condorcet-IRV, a voting platform created at Cornell.
