The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) was formed earlier this year, seeking to evolve Ethereum so that is can serve as an enterprise-grade technology. EEA’s research and development is focused on privacy, confidentiality, scalability, and security. EEA is also investigating hybrid architectures that span both permissioned and public Ethereum networks as well as industry specific application layer working groups.
Julio Faura, chairman of EEA and head of blockchain r&d at Santander expressed, “The enthusiasm around EEA is remarkable. Our new members come from varying industries such as pharma, mobile, banking, automotive, management consulting, and hardware as well as the startup community driving innovation. It’s great to see everyone come together and build the next generation of our economy on Ethereum blockchain solutions.”
EEA will collectively develop industry standards and facilitate open source collaboration with its member base and is open to any members of the Ethereum community who wish to participate. This collaborative framework will enable the mass adoption at a depth and breadth otherwise unachievable in individual corporate silos and provide insight to the future of scalability, privacy, and confidentiality of the public Ethereum permissionless network.
“At NXN we are excited about the potential of the Etherium Enterprise Alliance to revolutionize digital processes. We have been supporting digital transformation of government and real estate development entities for ten years in the Middle East. In that time we have rarely come across a technology that has the potential to so completely revolutionize our customers’ organisations and services. We look forward to contributing to the development of the platform.”
