0

The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) is opening a regional office in China, according to a press release shared with Cointelegraph on Feb. 14.

According to the press release, Weijia Zhang, vice president of engineering at blockchain interoperability startup Wanchain, has been appointed as the head for the new regional office. Zhang will reportedly be responsible “for supporting the advancement and adoption of EEA’s standards by taking part in local hackathons, workshops, training sessions, and conferences.”

The EEA, according to its website is “a member-driven standards organization whose charter is to develop open, blockchain specifications that drive harmonization and interoperability for businesses and consumers worldwide.” Per the press release, the new office is designed to help EEA members in China leverage the EEA’s standards and other resources.

As Cointelegraph reported in October last year, the EEA released a new set of specifications in an effort to provide standards for developers using private iterations of the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain.

During the same month, news broke that blockchain platform Hyperledger and EEA announced that they were joining each other’s organizations as “Associate Members” in order to support enterprise blockchain adoption. Hyperledger, similarly to the EEA, is a project that has the aim of improving the development cross-industry blockchain technologies.
