Should questions that are specifically confined to the workings of Hyperledger Fabric be on topic?


Previous meta discussion: What is really on-topic for Ethereum Stack Exchange?

I can see that questions comparing Fabric to Ethereum might be useful to some extent, so could be considered on-topic, but IMO questions about Fabric that are in no way connected to Ethereum should be considered off-topic.

Note that we have the and tags.



Hyperledger Fabric is one of the Hyperledger projects. It provides a plug-and-play framework for developing blockchain stuff. It doesn't support the EVM directly.

Hyperledger Burrow is another of their projects and includes an Apache-licensed Ethereum VM implementation.

(I'm unsure if Burrow is a sub-project of, and therefore built on top of, Fabric.)

I think questions about other blockchains that do not mention or involve some aspect of Ethereum, should be flagged off-topic for migrating them to the Bitcoin Stack Exchange, which appears to be the site for all other blockchains.


Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies is a question and answer site for cryptocurrency enthusiasts. It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. With your help, we're working together to build a library of detailed answers to every question about Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Namecoin, Litecoin, Ripple, ZCash, Dogecoin, and NXT.

Please note that Ethereum and Monero have launched their own Stack Exchange sites.

  • Note that - at the time of writing - the Bitcoin community also doesn't accept questions about other cryptocurrencies anymore, let alone other blockchain technologies. May 4, 2020 at 14:28
