An affiliate of global electronics giant Samsung is among 17 new members to join the Hyperledger blockchain project.

The Linux-led blockchain initiative  todayhttp://news.sys-con.com/node/3902630 announced new companies and organizations have joined its ranks including Samsung's IT services subsidiary Samsung SDS, Quickbooks developer Intuit and heavy machinery manufacturer Sany.

The announcement provides the latest sign that Samsung is developing an interest in the emerging technology, and that major institutions are increasingly viewing Hyperledger as a venue for further engagement.

To date, nearly 100 companies and startups have joined to contribute to the project since its launch in December.

Brian Behlendorf, Hyperledger's executive director, said in a statement:

"At a growth rate of nearly two new members joining per week – there's no telling where we'll be at by the end of the year – I look forward to working with this growing community to further our open blockchain development efforts."

The news follows an uptick in announcements for the project, including the admission of French aircraft manufacturer Airbus earlier this month and the unveiling of initial open-source projects spearheaded by contributors.
