The Hyperledger blockchain project just got a little bit bigger.

The Linux Foundation-backed consortium has announced 10 new members, of which seven are "general" members and the other three are "associate" members. To date, more than 100 companies, startups and organizations have joined the effort, which was first launched in late 2015.

The new entities signing up come from both the technology and financial sectors. General members include Capgemini Financial Services, Revelry Labs, Smart Link Labs and TradeIX. China-based ANNE, Beijing RZXT Technology Development and New H3C Technologies are also on board. The three associate members are: Accord Project, Tecnalia Research & Innovation and the University of Luxembourg.

The development comes soon after a major release from the cluster of projects that exist under the Hyperledger umbrella.

On July 11,  Hyperledger released the first production version of Fabric, its open-source blockchain platform that originated as a project within IBM, a major backer of the initiative.
