Analytics User WG
Working group to discuss ways to help drive transparency into the Ethereum blockchain, ongoing developments in the Ethereum analytics space, engage potential partners looking to understand current capabilities in the market, & discuss ongoing challenges with current & future analytics market participants. A primary aim is to develop a clear set of standards around analytics (e.g., API integration) to drive visibility into the ecosystem forward.
A.I. and Blockchain User WG
To build a cohesive, rapidly expanding group of thought leaders, tech entrepreneurs and SME who research, explore and champion the synergies of Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain. To formalize AI Blockchain’s integration role and accelerate the adoption of a new cognitive and decentralized computing paradigm as relates to not only traditional IT solutions but emerging IoT, DAO, Web 3.0, Semantic Web technologies. Facilitate the marriage of probabilistic and deterministic solutions and identify use cases for “fair allocation mechanism.”
The Banking Working Group aims to:

- Inform the EEA reference spec with requirements that allow us to support industry use cases on EEA compliant platforms
- Strategize and execute on delivering connectivity to existing industry standards like ISO, FpML, MQ, etc.
- Build a non-IP bearing smart contract library of best practices & templates for financial assets and workflows
- Ensure legal and regulatory questions are collected and addressed efficiently
- Foster partnership opportunities between members
Blockchain Airspace User WG
The EEA Blockchain Airspace User Working Group will discuss strategy and development of the blockchain airspace ecosystem, development of a unified protocol standard for autonomous aerial vehicle communications and ubiquitous mesh network around the globe. Engaging and educating strategic partners on current blockchain airspace developments, identifying breakthrough ideas, solving potential regulatory challenges, and dynamically growing the ecosystem. Evgeni Borisov is the chairman of VIMANA Blockchain Airspace WG
Communications Protocol WG
Create standards for the management of regulated communication such that service providers can provide all the necessary meta data and media data surrounding a communication. Define how all such data will be stored and the access management required for regulatory compliance and data analytics.
Propose new protocols and standards for the discovery, peering and connecting of endpoints across multiple diverse communities (TDM, SIP, WebRTC, Skype, etc) for communication. This includes how the peering directory will be stored and managed.
Propose protocols and standards for web-based communication between nodes on an Ethereum network in a decentralised way.
Digital Identity WG
The Digital Identity Working Group will work to establish a general understanding and develop a taxonomy for identity on Ethereum and the role of identity in the EEA technology stack.
The Energy Working Group seeks to build the industry infrastructure needed for widespread adoption within energy-related industries and help to define standards around Ethereum blockchain implementations for: Oil and Gas, Mining, Refining, Trading, Utilities, Grids.
Due to heavy regulations in pharmaceutical industry we see strong DLT based use cases in the areas of research, production, delivery, usage, service management & support to proof in a transparent way, what has been done by whom and why to any regulator/Auditor. Towards our customers an increase of transparency & trust in provisioning with the right medications/products for the right purpose is a key deliverable. Ensuring data privacy & general reliability & safety of customer/patient data could be part of a separate Working Group, still this element is of high importance to this Working Group too.
The Insurance Working Group promotes the collaborative development of a standard, open and free to use protocol for decentralized insurance. We want to enable business processes covering the whole value chain of insurance, new business models, verticals and entities.
