Decentralisation and Smart contract

0 votes

Please help me if my conceptualization is incorrect ---


I am trying to understand how to achieve decentralization in Hyperledger Fabric - smart contracts. Assume Org 1 and Org 2 are in the same channel. Each of these Org have peers and endorsers. The endorsement policy is 100% of Org 1 and Org 2


In my understanding the SAME SMART CONTRACT needs to be installed in both Org 1 and Org 2 peer. So the same code that was created by one developer (say Org 1) needs to be installed in Org 2 and run. How is this decentralization?

Should not be there a way where ORG 2 can separately create its own smart contract and install and validate? As you can see te question is nothing to do with endorsement policies etc.

thanks in advance and please feel free to correct me if my basic understanding of decentralization is incorrect

Hey, @Vijayaprasad!

The decentralization in Blockchain refers to the decentralization of data, which means the data stored on the Blockchain is decentralized.

First, let me tell you why the same smart contract should be installed on Org1 and Org2. Smart Contract is basically the program that controls how the Blockchain works. Because all the nodes in the same Blockchain network should have the same logic (consensus) for operation, the same smart contract is installed. If different smart contracts are installed, then different nodes will have different mechanisms.

When some data is stored on the Blockchain (after validation and verification of course), this data is decentralized among the nodes in the same network.

Hope this explanation was clear :)
