Enterprise Ethereum Alliances Unveils New Technical Steering Committee

The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance has revealed a new technical steering committee, five months after the group first launched.

As CoinDesk reported at the group's launch in February, the alliance is backed by a broad array of blockchain startups and enterprise businesses, including Merck, Toyota, and even the state government of Illinois. The group tripled in size in May, adding more than 80 companies to its roster.

Now, the group is laying down some of its governance foundations, instituting a new technical steering committee that will be focused on advancing the EntEth 1.0 reference software.

Pulling from the alliance members, the committee will also oversee seven new working groups, each consisting of industry players. Specific areas that those working groups will focus on include token issuances, banking, healthcare, insurance, advertising, legal and supply chain finance.

"The EEA has made the largest commitment to member-driven working groups in the industry focusing on innovative blockchain technologies and applications to solve real-world problems," Jeremy Millar, a founding board member of the group, said in a statement, adding:

"Many of the blockchain industry's best and brightest have agreed to contribute their leadership and energy as a chair for an EEA work group. We thank them and all the working group members for their support and efforts."

Alex Batlin, global blockchain lead for BNY Mellon, will serve as the chair of the steering committee as well as the token working group. Other chair roles are filled in by executives from JPMorgan Chase, Merck, and the ethereum development community ConsenSys, among others.
