Hands on Hyperledger Fabric using IBM Cloud Container(Kubernetes) Service

Speakers Workshop will demonstrate the steps involved in setting up your business network on Hyperledger Fabric using Kubernetes APIs on IBM Cloud Container Service. Hosting the Hyperledger Fabric network on IBM Cloud provides you many benefits like multiple users can work on the same setup, the setup can be used for different blockchain applications, the setup can be reused and so on.

Note: Blockchain network setup on Kubernetes is good to use for demo scenarios but for production, it is recommended to use IBM Blockchain as a service hosted on IBM Cloud.
