A Neutral Forum for Ethereum Business Innovation

The EEA Community Projects, formerly known as the Ethereum OASIS Open Project, is the hub for open source-based standards development in the Ethereum industry. It includes critical Ethereum projects like the Baseline Protocol Initiative and JSON-RPC API documentation under its stewardship.

Whether you pursue specialized, member-driven EEA projects or community-driven EEA Community Projects, the EEA offers well-trodden innovation paths for both types of work.

COMMUNITY-DRIVEN:

EEA Community Projects – Your Path for Open Source Business Collaboration

The EEA Community Projects provide support for open source development of code, APIs, standards, and reference implementations.  Its foundation is the former Ethereum OASIS Open Project, which represents 25+ years of OASIS experience in collaborative development and its global reputation and relationships. The work is led by EEA, managed under the OASIS Open process, and driven by the community at large.

Everyone is welcome to contribute to the existing Baseline and JSON-RPC efforts, and suggestions for new EEA Community Projects are encouraged.  You do not need to be an EEA member to submit a technical contribution or get involved.

Support the EEA Community Projects: Become a Sponsor

Sponsors help provide the strategic vision, governance, and technical guidance and approve new projects and standards to ensure the long-term health and growth of the open source community.

Organizations that sponsor the EEA Community Projects have the option to hold a seat on the Project Governing Board, where they:

  • Oversee the technical agenda and marketing activities
  • Work with Technical Steering Committees
  • Appoint Maintainers and elect Chairs
  • Decide which work products to advance through OASIS’ more formal standards process
  • Request submission of approved work to ISO and IEC
  • Gain exposure on the Projects website and via social media, events, press, and analyst communications

MEMBER-DRIVEN:

EEA Interest & Working Group Projects—Your Path to Collaborate with Member Companies

EEA members that wish to pursue a technical specification that supports the requirements of their specific industry or areas of interest can participate in EEA’s member-driven Interest and Working Groups.  EEA members exchange information, share use cases, and work together to ensure that any resulting technical specifications support their specific needs.  See the current list of Interest Groups and Working Groups – more are being added.

To participate, join one of the Interest Groups and share your requirements.

The Ethereum OASIS Open Project has become the go-to community for open source-based standards development in Ethereum, such as the Baseline Protocol initiative. Transitioning Ethereum OASIS to the new EEA Community Projects will enable the Ethereum business ecosystem to leverage a wider network of resources and further accelerate innovation,” said Dan Burnett, EEA Executive Director and EEA Community Projects Governing Board Chair. “We look forward to working together to chart the future of Ethereum innovation and collaboration

OASIS has tremendous respect for EEA’s leadership in the Ethereum​ ecosystem​ and its commitment to advancing adoption across industries,” said Guy Martin, Executive Director of OASIS Open. “EEA was pivotal in the formation, growth, and success of this project. We’re excited to bring the community together now under the EEA banner with continued support from the OASIS standards process. It marks a milestone for distributed technology and a giant step forward in the harmonization of the open source and open standards communities.

As a founding sponsor of the Ethereum OASIS Open Project, the EEA has been involved from the program’s inception, including the Baseline Protocol initiative for driving Mainnet business use cases. We are thrilled to bring both communities together under the EEA Community Projects banner to collaborate on how tools like Baseline can deliver value to consumer-facing industries through peer-to-peer transactions and services,” said John Whelan, Chairman of the EEA Board of Directors and Managing Director of Digital Assets at Banco Santander.

As a founding member of both OASIS Open and EEA, we’ve been proud to participate in the incredible growth of both Baseline Protocol and the EEA communities. The EEA Community Projects is a logical next step that will strengthen the Ethereum development as a whole. The EEA Community Projects aims to raise the level of business collaboration needed to benefit Ethereum as a whole. We welcome all interested to the EEA Community Projects,” John Wolpert, ConsenSys Group Executive for Enterprise Mainnet, Baseline Protocol Technical Steering Committee Chair, and EEA Mainnet Working Group Vice Chair.
