PegaSys August 2019 Update

August has flown by in the blink of an eye, and we're headed into a very busy next couple of months full of big events and much more! Read on to find out what we've been up to, and what's on the horizon.



Last week, the PegaSys team proudly announced that we had submitted our Ethereum Client, formerly known as Pantheon, to Hyperledger and it was accepted by the Technical Steering Committee. We see this as a significant milestone for both open source collaboration in the enterprise blockchain space and for the adoption of the Ethereum mainnet for business use cases.

The Pantheon name  has officially been changed to Hyperledger Besu, and our website and tools will begin reflecting those changes shortly.

Check out our blog post on why we submitted, as well as some of the recent press!

We recently launched our PegaSys Partner Program! The program, meant for startups and enterprises, provides enablement like special technical content, closer collaboration on roadmap, and updates on upgrades.
