The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance has set a common technical specification for ethereum blockchains today, dubbed Enterprise Ethereum Client Specification 1.0.  The specifications are designed to create common standards as a way to marshall developer efforts.

The specifications were announced at the Consensus 2018 conference in New York and had been in the works for a while. The group has more than 500 members, including such large companies as JPMorgan Chase, Microsoft, and developer studio ConsenSys.

Ron Resnick, executive director for the EEA, said the specification is “the result of 18 months of intense collaboration between leading enterprise, technology and platform members within our technical committee. This EEA open-source, cross-platform framework will enable the mass adoption at a depth and breadth otherwise unachievable in individual corporate silos.”
