Huawei and Other cloud players 

Every cloud service provider is now recognizing deployment challenges associated with blockchain ecosystem and trying to solve the same by providing automated infrastructure. These blockchain deployments are mostly targetted towards enterprises and often categorized as private or permissioned blockchain. Companies are interested in blockchain technologies due to its inherent characteristics such as decentralization, tamper resistance, and traceability.

Huawei is key maintainer and contributor for two Hyperledger sub-projects viz. Fabric and STL. Huawei is also the only maintainer from Asia in these sub-projects, claims the announcement.
