The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance and Hyperledger are joining their organizations in an effort to foster mass blockchain adoption.

The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA), a non-profit that educates businesses on how to use Ethereum to address specific industry use cases, and the Linux Foundation´s Hyperledger project, an open-source collaborative initiative that aims to “advance cross-industry blockchain technologies”, have officially joined their organizations in an effort to accelerate the mass adoption of distributed ledger technologies, and help foster a climate of collaboration between the two enterprises.

Ron Resnick, the executive director of the EEA, said in a statement he believes that this represents “a time of great opportunity”, since the collaboration through a mutual associate membership could open the way “for both organizations to work more closely together”.

Amber Baldet, founder of the Clovyr dApp store, and former head of blockchain at JP Morgan Chase & Co., commented on the synergy that results from such an initiative,

There are already several organizations that belong to both Hyperledger and EEA, and good relationships among those in leadership positions […] It makes sense to work together toward the common goal of solving real business challenges with decentralized technologies.

Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director of Hyperledger added,

Great open standards depend upon great open source code, so this is a natural alliance for both organizations.

This news puts to rest rumors that Hyperledger and the EEA were at each other´s throats in a bid to achieve enterprise blockchain supremacy. Casey Kuhlman, CEO of Monax, explained that while this may have been the case in the past, there are no current confrontations among both parties.
