BLOK Technologies Inc. (CSE:BLK) (FRANKFURT:2AD) is pleased to announce that Manu Varghese, Chief Product Officer of its 100% owned subsidiary Greenstream Networks Inc. (“Greenstream”) was one of eight people in the world selected as a member of the Hyperledger Certification Committee focused on creating the first Hyperledger Fabric Certification examination. The committee included selected industry experts from technology companies IBM, Oracle, Altoros, Huawei, and the Blockchain Training Alliance. The committee also included key Hyperledger Fabric maintainers and community architects.

In addition to being part of a select group at the forefront of developing Hyperledger best practices, access to this community provides Greenstream, and its parent, BLOK Tech, with unprecedented support and validation for its technology development initiatives. Together, leading-edge blockchain developers such as Greenstream are contributing to the Hyperledger code-base and building out new technology applications on Hyperledger Fabric, a blockchain framework and one of the Hyperledger projects.


The committee focused on defining the program goals, scope and exam blueprint for the new Certified Hyperledger Fabric Administrator examination. Once certified, a Certified Hyperledger Fabric Administrator (“CHFA”) will be able to effectively build a secure Hyperledger Fabric network for commercial deployment. The certification examination will be the First Official Hyperledger Fabric certification by the Linux Foundation and is aimed to be the gold standard in enterprise blockchain technology. CHFA is a performance based examination which evaluates the hands-on capabilities of the participant to administer a commercial Hyperledger Fabric deployment.

Key responsibilities of the committee were to define Certification, the number of levels, titles, program goals, provide subject matter expert (SME) support, and conduct alpha and beta testing while supporting the public launch of the exam. The committee worked to define the exam blueprint containing the specific exam domains and topics, script and program the exam items, and their relevant weight within the exam to determine the exam passing score.

“It is a great honor to be a part of the Hyperledger Certification Committee and support the community in creating a performance based certification exam,” said Manu Varghese, Chief Product Officer of Greenstream. “The Certified Hyperledger Fabric Administrator certification blueprint is carefully curated to reflect the up-to-date demand in the enterprise blockchain ecosystem. This will help in bridging the industry with the right talent pool & thereby enriching the growth of the industry.”
