The Lifecycle of a User Transaction in a Hyperledger Fabric Blockchain Network Part 1: Propose and Endorse

Sjir Nijssen, Peter Bollen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


The paper describes the happy and the less happy flows of a user transaction through a Hyperledger Fabric Blockchain Network. The full cycle of a user transaction originates from the Client Application (an actor outside the Hyperledger Ledger Network but inside an organization that is part of a set that runs the Hyperledger Fabric Blockchain Network). In the process of making the Hyperledger Fabric Blockchain network knowledge explicit, essential parts of FBM were applied in cooperation with the developers of the Fabric Blockchain platform. The approach was given the name Visual Vocabulary by the Documentation Working Group of Hyperledger Fabric, a visual vocabulary to represent instances of facts.
