Re: Transact Project Proposal

Shawn Amundson

Dan - sounds absolutely fantastic. Node.js and Java are both on the list of languages we will support for smart contract engines. The next week or so will probably be spent finalizing the project name and getting infrastructure setup for the project. We have a #transact channel in RocketChat now (it will be renamed later) and will setup regular contributors meetings soon.

Also excited by this. Within the Accord Project ( we maintain the Open Source Cicero runtime and Ergo Domain Specific Language for Smart Contracts. We've already experimented with embedding Cicero within Fabric (via compilation to Node.js and Java), but if compilation to Transact could open the door to supporting other ledgers that would be of great interest to the AP community.

How can we get involved?

I'm super excited about this, as I've long hoped for a intermediate layer between DLT and smart contracts that might allow better componentization within HL as a whole.  And I'm happy to see the very thoughtful description of how this would relate to other Hyperledger projects, both planned and possible.  It'd be great to hear on-list or as comments to the proposal from devs involved in these other projects, and people thinking about other smart contract engines (like DAML) that could be plugged in.  Very happy to see Gari's name on the proposal as a sponsor, and hope this indicates a willingness from the Fabric team to spend more time with this.

I'm happy to extend this proposal to the TSC for future consideration on behalf of its sponsors:

From the proposal: "Transact is a transaction execution platform designed to be used as a library or component when implementing distributed ledgers, including blockchains. Hyperledger framework-level projects and custom distributed ledgers can make use of Transact's advanced transaction execution and state management to simplify the transaction execution code required within their projects or to gain additional features."

Please provide feedback to help us enhance this proposal!
