I read as if HL Fabric was the most interesting thing ever created on the use of blockchain, but when I read the documentation (very short) about Hyperledger Fabric I came across some coincidences.

the install is very common: https://github.com/hyperledger/hyperledger

but the documentation mentions "tangle": https://github.com/hyperledger

but the blog documentation: https://hyperledger-fabric.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ is equal Ether documentation: https://ethdocs.org/en/latest/ether.html

Does anyone know of any tool that I can compare the code of 3?

No, they are not related at all. The Hyperledger documentation is not short. The Hyperledger Github project does not mention Tangle as far as I can see. The only similarity with the Hyperledger documentation and Etherium documentation is that they are hosted on Read the Docs and look similar, the content is completely different. Hyperledger, Tangle, and Etherium are developed completely independently.


There is confusion here with the term Hyperledger.

Hyperledger is a Linux Foundation consortium of multiple open-source enterprise blockchain technologies (unrelated to Tangle). It includes:

  • Hyperledger Fabric, contributed by IBM (and not a fork of anything)
  • Hyperledger Sawtooth, contributed by Intel. Also not a fork. Both are Apache 2 licensed
  • Hyperledger Burrow an Ethereum VM (EVM) compatible blockchain (also included in Sawtooth)
  • other block chain technologies and tools

So you can see there is no forking--these are independent platforms with independent code bases (Fabric, Sawtooth, Burrow, Tangle, Ethereum).

The only relations are - Ethereum and Burrow both implement EVM - Hyperledger platforms are all under the Linux Foundation Hyperledger consortium, but are independent platforms and code bases.

    Tangle is alternative distrubuted database design to Blockchain, it's got nothing to do with Hyperledger as far as I know. Commented Sep 19, 2018 at 16:14
