Open-source blockchain initiative Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) has launched three new member-driven working groups in digital identity, energy, and multiplatform interoperability.
Each of the newly launched working group is tasked with creating and delivering specific advancements to the development and use of Ethereum-based technologies.
The Digital Identity Working Group aims to establish a general understanding of the role of Ethereum in the digital identity space and develop a taxonomy that is widely accepted and practiced in the technology industry.
The Energy Working Group is entrusted with defining standards around Ethereum blockchain implementations for oil and gas, mining, refining, trading, utilities, grids and other verticals within the energy industry. It will work toward building the industry infrastructure needed for widespread adoption within these energy-related areas.
The MultiPlatform Working Group will work to make the Ethereum platform available on multiple operating systems and physical hardware, to make the platform universally adoptable.
With the launch of the new working groups, the number of EEA industry-led working groups and committees totals 17.
“EEA’s member-driven working groups focus on solving the real-world challenges of deploying and using Ethereum in the enterprise. The output of the working groups is a key component of EEA’s mission and active participation is something our members find valuable to their businesses,” said Jeremy Millar, founding board member, EEA. “Identity, energy and multiplatform interoperability are three areas where EEA members see real advantages to using Ethereum technologies in 2018. Working groups allow them to innovate, test new ideas and stay competitive.”
