The Blockchain concept was an innovation born out of the Bitcoin cryptocurrency initiative. Other more recent initiatives have demonstrated that the blockchain technology can be used for applications beyond cryptocurrencies, some of which include: supply chain accountability, real estate title tracking, asset management, music ownership rights tracking and royalty distribution, and healthcare record management and access. The Hyperledger Sawtooth project provides a general purpose platform for creating domain specific blockchain ledgers. The SParts project used the platform to develop a Software Parts ledger to track the open source components from which manufactured products are constructed. In this talk we present our experiences and lessons learned in constructing the SParts ledger and discuss how the Sawtooth platform can be used to create ledgers for other domains.
