EEA, Hyperledger collaboration a significant blockchain milestone

"This joint effort between two of the largest enterprise blockchain communities is indicative of the collaborative spirit that will accelerate the adoption of blockchain into the mainstream"

As Hyperledger and the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) formally join eachother’s organisations as associate members, Coin Rivet brings you reaction from leading industry players.

Nick Cowan, CEO of Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange (GBX):

“The collaboration to create a common set of standards for both platforms is a significant milestone for the wider blockchain ecosystem. The real winners are the prospective blockchain projects that previously would have had interoperability concerns when deciding to pursue blockchain innovation using Ethereum or Hyperledger. This joint effort between two of the largest enterprise blockchain communities is indicative of the collaborative spirit that will accelerate the adoption of blockchain into the mainstream.”

Eric Piscini, CEO of Citizens Reserve:

“It is fantastic to see more effort towards technology standardisation in the blockchain space. This will drive more adoption across industries and create more traction across technology players. We, at Citizens Reserve, are focusing on building SUKU, which is bringing standardised supply chain capabilities to everybody who wants to be part of global commerce. While Hyperledger and EEA are building technology standards, we aim to build business standards, from data standards to process and business standards. Standards are critical to deliver on our vision of better efficiency, higher transparency and visibility, as well as cheaper access to supply chain functionalities.”

Gabriele Giancola, CEO and Co-founder of qiibee:

“There is a growing number of developers who are asking for some level of standardisation, which will pave the path to interoperability. This becomes even more relevant as blockchain technology continues to attract wide interest and expands into new industries, which reiterates the need for a regulatory framework. If blockchain is to reach mainstream adoption, there will need to be regulatory standards put into place, but I believe this will benefit the ecosystem as a whole.”
