The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA), the world’s largest open-source blockchain initiative, has recently grown by 34 new members, which is now up to 150 members.
The EEA is a not-for-profit consortium, which focuses on the developments of ethers or on the blockchain.
Among the 34 new members are now well-known members such as Mastercard and Cisco, the press release first causing confusion. In the list of the new members was not just the credit crunch.
Andrew Keys of ConsenSys says: “Mastercard wanted to not appear in the official press release, but to make their own announcements.”
But also from these banks and financial institutions, members from a wide range of areas of technology are involved: technology, government, health care, marketing, insurance and energy.
