The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) has appointed Aya Miyaguchi, executive director of the Ethereum Foundation, to its board as the EEA unveils its new "Mainnet Initiative."
Miyaguchi, who looks after governance on the side of the public ethereum blockchain, will join EEA as a board member and bolster the interoperability and standards building work being done by EEA executive director Ron Resnick.
“This is an exciting time,” said Ethereum Foundation executive director and EEA director Aya Miyaguchi in a statement.
“As blockchain adoption accelerates, it’s important that the Ethereum Foundation work to connect businesses with the latest research and development coming from our worldwide community, and that we convey our challenges and experiences while better understanding those impacting industries.”
The EEA’s new Mainnet Initiative is a technical working group that will bring public and enterprise efforts closer together. It will define the best ways the public network components can match the commercial market requirements needed to allow the world to connect to ethereum.
Joseph Lubin, EEA board member, co-founder of Ethereum, and founder of ConsenSys, said in a statement:
More detail on the EEA Mainnet Initiative will be revealed at the forthcoming Devcon5, October 8-11, 2019, in Osaka, Japan.
*This story has been updated to reflect the fact Aya Miyaguchi's appointment to the EEA board is not specifically to drive the mainnet initiative.
