Back in August,
. With this announcement, Consensys
debuted its new open-source blockchain protocol offering,
. Consensys Quorum is an open-source protocol layer that serves as a foundation for businesses to build public or private Ethereum-based enterprise solutions. Consensys Quorum is made up of four layers of open source codebase: client software, private transaction management, external transaction signing, and additional tooling.
The Consensys Quorum team has since been busy building the open-source projects within Consensys Quorum, including GoQuorum, Hyperledger Besu, Orion, Tessera, and EthSigner. These efforts have resulted in today’s release of the Consensys Quorum bundles: the Java-based bundle and the Go-based bundle. These bundles will include binaries for the projects so that you can spin up the projects altogether to start building your application that much quicker. By bundling the Go-based and Java-based versions of Consensys Quorum, developers are able to build seamlessly on Consensys Quorum.
