The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) has opened its regional office in China and appointed Dr. Weijia Zhang, Wanchain’s vice president of engineering, as the EEA’s Regional Head.

Formed in 2017, the EEA is a member-driven, standards organization whose charter is to develop open, blockchain specifications that drive harmonization and interoperability for businesses and consumers worldwide. Board members include Microsoft, Accenture, IC3, ConsenSys, Intel, BNY Mellon, and others.

According to the official release, the new office will provide local support to enable China EEA members to leverage the EEA’s standards, working groups, and resources to achieve business results.

“As part of our efforts to accelerate the global adoption of Enterprise Ethereum standards and associated certification programs, the EEA has opened regional offices in Japan, Korea, and now China as part of the organization’s ongoing efforts to open more offices around the globe,” said EEA Executive Director Ron Resnick.

Zhang has extensive research and development and engineering experience in blockchain, cognitive sciences, computational fluid dynamics, software modeling, computer technologies, and industrial standards. He has over twenty patents, granted and pending, in computer and digital technology. For over a decade, he was a principal software engineer at Dell.

Resnick said that Zhang’s blockchain expertise and leadership will help to accelerate blockchain adoption in China and support activities of EEA’s growing member base.

As the EEA Regional Head in China, Zhang will be responsible for supporting the advancement and adoption of EEA’s standards by taking part in local hackathons, workshops, training sessions, and conferences.

"There has never been a more challenging and exciting time to be in blockchain technology. The progress we are seeing across the industry is very promising, and the EEA’s leadership around blockchain standardization and adoption are paramount. I look forward to working with the EEA in China to aid in bringing value to enterprises by utilizing EEA standards, working groups, and resources,” said Zhang.
