Commenting on the inclusion, Faisal Husain, Co-Founder & CEO, Synechron stated: "As a consulting firm focused on digital, business consulting and technology initiatives, Synechron has worked with global clients on everything from blockchain use case development to platform selection and application building. This has given us experience across all of the major blockchain platforms, and we’re seeing clients gravitate towards Ethereum for use cases that could in the future require a mix of public and private participants. That said, the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance is doing important work to bring Ethereum from its public origins to a permissioned blockchain platform that can handle the heightened security requirements of industries like financial services. As part of the EEA, we expect to contribute to this effort through open source code contribution and by sharing our insights from building working Blockchain applications. This will all help to address issues like security, privacy, scalability, and interoperability critical for blockchain’s long-term success in financial services."

The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) was formed earlier this year seeking to evolve Ethereum so that it can serve as an enterprise-grade technology. EEA’s research and development is focused on privacy, confidentiality, scalability, and security. EEA is also investigating hybrid architectures that span both permissioned and public Ethereum networks as well as industry specific application layer working groups.

Julio Faura, chairman of EEA and Head of Blockchain R&D at Santander expressed, “The enthusiasm around EEA is remarkable. Our new members come from varying industries such as pharma, mobile, banking, automotive, management consulting, and hardware as well as the startup community driving innovation. It’s great to see everyone come together and build the next generation of our economy on Ethereum Blockchain solutions.”

Synechron along with EEA and its associate members aim to collectively develop industry standards and facilitate open source collaboration. This collaborative framework will enable the mass adoption widely, otherwise unachievable in individual corporate silos and provide insight to the future of scalability, privacy, and confidentiality of the public Ethereum permission less network.
