Intro to Hyperledger
In this module, we'll explore where Hyperledger came from, and how it has evolved over time.
The best way to understand how Hyperledger works is to set up your own node.
Example: Hyperledger for Car Dealerships
It's not the size of your node that matters - it's how you use it.
In the Hyperledger environment, the Validated or VLedger represents the present sum of all successfully validated transactions. Transactions which are not successfully validated or endorsed will be exempt from this list, making it a useful tool for efficiency among peer nodes.
Because Hyperledger systems exist in a closed environment, most nodes do not need to participate in the full consensus process. As a result, most nodes will simply maintain their copy of the vLedger and trust that others are ensuring its validity. This is also convenient for larger networks since it ensures that the network has a single common state at any time, rather than the possibility of local consensus emerging.
