On 1st October, the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance [EEA] announced its partnership with Hyperledger, an open source collaborative effort built to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. In a blog post shared by both the parties, it was stated that the two have become the Associate Members mutually within each other’s organizations.

The prime agenda of this collaboration is to drive mass adoption of the blockchain technology in the business world. Brian Behlendorf, the Executive Director of Hyperledger and Ron Resnick, the Executive Director of EEA co-authored a blog on the occasion. Here, Resnick stated:

“Collaborating through mutual associate membership provides more opportunities for both organizations to work more closely together. In addition, Hyperledger developers who join the EEA can participate in EEA Certification to ensure solution compliance for projects related to the Enterprise Ethereum Client Specification.”

This collaboration will especially be applicable across Interest Groups, Working Groups, global conferences and meetups. Furthermore, Hyperledger will provide support to the EEA community in software implementations for the specifications and standards that EEA chooses to work on. Behlendorf said:

“Great open standards depend upon great open source code, so this is a natural alliance for both organizations”

Enterprise Ethereum Alliance is an initiative to establish a connection between big industry players, such as JP Morgan, Intel, Microsoft, CME Group, Accenture, Ernst & Young, Infosys and more with startups, technology vendors and academics.

Hyperledger is a project to advance the blockchain industry and is hosted by the Linux Foundation. Other groups involved in the joint effort are leading institutions across several sectors, such as banking, supply chains, the Internet of Things, manufacturing, finance and technology.
