The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) and Hyperledger,  have announced they they will become associate members in each other’s group. It is hoped the move will boost blockchain adoption across various industries.

As reported in Cryptovest, the two organisations lead large consortia comprising hundreds of companies across multiple sectors worldwide. Brian Behlendorf, executive director at Hyperledger, and his EEA counterpart Ron Resnick announced the collaboration in simultaneous posts on their respective websites.

It is hoped closer cooperation between the two groups will boost blockchain adoption across various industries.

Both directors stressed that blockchain community members should no longer view the situation as EEA versus Hyperledger but as the two groups working together.

The collaboration will see Hyperledger developers writing codes in line with the EEA specification. As Resnick pointed out, the programmers can also certify the codes via the EEA certification testing programs planned for launch next year.

It was also confirmed that both communities will work together across dozens of special interest groups, conferences, and meetups.
