Enterprise Ethereum Alliance and Hyperledger become each other’s Associate Members

The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA), a consortium driving the adoption of Enterprise Ethereum, and Hyperledger, an open source collaborative effort advancing cross-industry blockchain technologies, have announced that they have joined each other’s organizations as Associate Members.
EEA and Hyperledger will together work towards meeting global demand for enterprise blockchain.
“This is a time of great opportunity,” EEA Executive Director Ron Resnick said. “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.”
With this open-source, standards-based, cross-platform collaboration, the organizations will be able to join forces on various initiatives including Special Interest Groups, Working Groups, meetups and conferences globally, across hundreds of thousands of developers in both communities. EEA community members working on specifications and standards can turn to Hyperledger to collaborate on software implementations of those standards.
In their joint announcement, EEA and Hyperledger underscored a number of projects that are currently underway. This includes the Hyperledger Burrow project, an Apache-licensed implementation of the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) bytecode interpreter; the EEA’s Special Interest Group on Trusted Execution Environments; and a prototype implementation of those proposed standards, called “Private Data Objects” being built within Hyperledger Labs.
The organizations said that their collaboration will encourage Ethereum developers to consider submitting their enterprise projects to Hyperledger and Hyperledger project maintainers to consider taking de-facto interfaces appropriate for standardization to the appropriate EEA working groups. It will also enable Hyperledger developers to write code that conforms to the EEA specification and certify them through EEA certification testing programs expected to launch in the second half of 2019.
“For anyone who ever put a ‘vs.’ between Ethereum and Hyperledger, this collaboration shows it’s now ‘Ethereum AND Hyperledger,’” Hyperledger Executive Director, Brian Behlendorf, said. “We expect developers building Enterprise Ethereum-related technologies to be motivated to submit projects to Hyperledger, and we hope that project maintainers will consider taking de-facto interfaces that are suitable for standardization to the appropriate Special Interest Group at the EEA.”
