The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) announced today that 35 organizations have joined the blockchain industry group since late May. Aquilon is proud to join this group of forward-looking enterprises and blockchain innovators.

EEA is now the world’s largest open-source blockchain initiative. EEA is an industry-supported, non-profit association established to build, promote, and broadly support Ethereum-based technology best practices, open standards, and open source reference architectures.

EA’s rapid growth in membership mirrors the accelerating acceptance and deployment of Ethereum blockchain solutions in the global marketplace,” said Julio Faura, chairman of the board, EEA. “The technological breadth, depth and variety of organizations coming together under the auspices of EEA to create and drive enterprise Ethereum standards bodes well for the future development of the next-generation Ethereum ecosystem.”

EEA was formed earlier this year, seeking to evolve Ethereum into an enterprise-grade technology. EEA’s research and development is focused on privacy, confidentiality, scalability, and security. EEA is also investigating hybrid architectures that span both permissioned and public Ethereum networks as well as industry-specific application layer working groups.
