The collaboration between the two consortiums will “accelerate adoption of blockchain technologies for business enterprise,” they included in a joint statement, underlining identical objectives with complementary ways to scaling blockchain tech for industries.

As associates of each individual other’s communities, the leaderships of the EEA and Hyperledger will have the indicates to collaborate across Distinctive Fascination Teams and Working Teams as well as “hundreds of 1000’s of developers in both equally communities,” Hyperledger explained in its individual announcement.

“EEA neighborhood associates doing work on specifications and specifications can change to Hyperledger to collaborate on software implementations of all those specifications,” it included.

Released in early 2017, the Ethereum Enterprise Alliance started as a 30-member team, mounting to in excess of 150 associates such as the likes of a condition governing administration from India by mid-2017.

“For everyone who ever set a ‘vs.’ between Ethereum and Hyperledger, this collaboration demonstrates it is now ‘Ethereum AND Hyperledger.”

“Great open specifications depend upon fantastic open supply code, so this is a all-natural alliance for both equally organizations,” Behlendorf included. “Standards, specifications and certification all assist organization blockchain customers dedicate to implementations with confidence considering that they have superior assurances of interoperability as well as multiple vendors of decision.”
