Hyperledger fabric: a distributed operating system for permissioned blockchains

Whitepaper Index

> I think the novel contribution that Fabric brought was not its performance evaluation methodology, but rather being the first (if I'm not mistaken) distributed operating system for permissioned blockchains, tailored for enterprises. Their strongest innovation, in my POV, is the execute-order-validate paradigm, which allowed for much better transaction throughput than public blockchains.
