The Keyhole Labs team is proud to announce the release of the Byzantine API Gateway, a new addition to our Byzantine Tools initiative.  The Byzantine API Gateway provides client access to a Hyperledger Fabric blockchain network through RESTful APIs. This addition joins a series of blockchain open source projects to enhance and accompany Hyperledger blockchain networks.

Keyhole Labs is a group within Keyhole dedicated to creating open source solutions that help software developers in their craft. Byzantine Tools is an extension of our Keyhole Labs open source initiatives with a more specific focus on blockchain technology.

While cryptocurrencies brought blockchain to the forefront of technology headlines, the technology underneath has true potential value for the enterprise outside of the cryptocurrency space. The features provided by blockchain technology can lead to business benefits like lower costs, higher efficiency, and lower risk through decentralization and immutability.

Blockchain is all the buzz now. And for good reason! A distributed public ledger that is extremely secure through encryption?! Imagine the millions of applicable use cases. A blockchain can be created and maintained using any modern language.

For the purpose of this blog, let’s dive into a blockchain written in JavaScript. Hopefully, this doesn’t just serve as a simple code example but also gives a very basic understanding of how a blockchain actually works.

Do keep in mind this will be very simplist…
