A rally that follows the merger between Hyperledger and the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA), of which Microsoft is Founding Member.
Announced in October 2018, it materialized the links established between Hyperledger’s projects and the Ethereum blockchain. In particular, the assumption of responsibility, on the framework Sawtooth, from the EVM (Ethereum virtual machine).
Seven other organizations join Hyperledger alongside Microsoft.
This is the case with Salesforce, which recently presented its first blockchain offer.
Surprise: the Ethereum foundation also joins the Hyperledger consortium.
The Ethereum Foundation is proud to lend our support to the efforts of both the @EntEthAlliance and @Hyperledger through our membership today. Together, we’ll continue to drive forward #Ethereum‘s progress and adoption.

What is the difference between the two consortia? On the one hand, the Enterprise Euthereum Alliance (EEA) does not control the evolution of Ethereum’s code. Its goal is to create a version of the public blockchain adapted to the needs of businesses.
For its part, Hyperledger is developing its own implementations open source.
The framework Fabric is his most advanced project. Microsoft supports it on its Azure cloud.
