It’s been just revealed that the former Ethereum Co-Founder, Founder of Cardano and CEO of IOHK, Charles Hoskinson, announced the launch of an enterprise blockchain framework that aims to provide financial services to billions of people living in African countries.
Forbes recently addressed the subject in one of their articles.
Known as “Atala” (named after a butterfly that resides in Florida), IOHK’s framework will serve as a solutions provider for developers, companies and governments looking to implement new products.
“Atala is an enterprise framework similar to Hyperledger Fabric. However, the point is to be a solutions provider for governments in need of a municipal currency or a supply chain management system. This requires a type of framework that serves as libraries and modules that would allow governments to rapidly build a product for end-users,” Hoskinson told me.
