The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance is a member-led industry organization whose primary objective is to help guide web-scale commercial adoption of Ethereum-based services. This is achieved by delivering an open standards-based architecture and specifications based on market needs, and testing and certification programs that ensure interoperability across multi-vendor solutions. The availability of validated and verified trusted solutions is essential for Ethereum to win over consumer confidence and penetrate the largest world markets.

Hyperledger, hosted by The Linux Foundation, is an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. Only an Open Source, collaborative software development approach can ensure the transparency, longevity, interoperability and support required to bring blockchain technologies forward to mainstream commercial adoption. That is what Hyperledger is about – communities of software developers building blockchain frameworks and platforms.

Within the Ethereum community, projects are beginning to span both organizations. For example, the ConsenSys spoke PegaSys built their Pantheon Ethereum client to conform to the EEA Client Specification. Pantheon was later submitted to Hyperledger and accepted as the Hyperledger Besu project. Once the EEA certification program is operational later this year, ConsenSys will likely submit a Besu-based product to EEA for certification.

This panel, co-hosted by the Executive Directors of the EEA and Hyperledger, will discuss the synergistic value that both organizations bring to the Ethereum ecosystem via the emergence of open-source based, standards-certified products.
