The mainstreaming of decentralization – Enterprise Ethereum Alliance


By Daniel C. Burnett, EEA Govt Director

Not too long ago, I despatched an e-mail to all of the members of the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) outlining our intention to discover new instructions for our group. 

This choice is a direct response to what we see as a profound – and really thrilling – evolution of the Ethereum ecosystem as a world enterprise platform. As a result of this evolution has essential implications not only for us, however for the broader enterprise neighborhood, I needed to share a few of this considering with most of the people on this weblog submit.

The decentralized future is right here

As I wrote to our members, when the EEA was based in 2017, our focus was on what we referred to as Enterprise Ethereum, which primarily meant personal, consortium-driven blockchain fashions. This was a mirrored image of the state of public Ethereum expertise on the time, which wasn’t in a position to ship the degrees of privateness, permissioning, and efficiency wanted for enterprise use circumstances. These are what we name the “three Ps”, and they’re important.

Quick ahead to at present, and the panorama has modified dramatically. The Ethereum Mainnet has advanced into essentially the most sturdy, reliable, and broadly used blockchain Layer 1 on the planet. An intensive ecosystem of Layer 2s, service suppliers, and different contributors has grown round it, providing sturdy options for the “three Ps” that companies require.

That is laying the foundations for what we’d name the “mainstreaming of decentralization”, a growth that I imagine – and have believed for a very long time – may have a profound impact on the enterprise world.

Amongst different issues, viable decentralized enterprise fashions constructed on public blockchains will permit for prime ranges of disintermediation, trustless transactions, radical transparency, tokenization of all types of tangible and intangible belongings, new alternatives in decentralized finance and new scope for automation – not simply of enterprise processes however, probably, of entire companies.

None of those concepts shall be new to anybody who follows blockchain. What’s new is the immediacy. Whereas not all of the items match collectively completely but, I believe it honest to say that the decentralized future is right here now for many who want to benefit from it.

Asking the suitable questions

To leverage its advantages, companies might want to perceive the rules of decentralization and apply them of their particular context. This may imply asking themselves numerous essential questions.

Listed here are just some examples:

Decentralization can take away the necessity for intermediaries in varied enterprise processes, resulting in extra environment friendly and cost-effective operations by trustless transactions. How will you as a enterprise benefit from this in your specific market? What new potentialities are there for disintermediated enterprise coordination that may show you how to be extra environment friendly? And the way must you react if what you are promoting mannequin relies on being an middleman?

The transparency inherent in public blockchains can present companies with an immutable and auditable path of all transactions. This stage of transparency can enhance belief with prospects and stakeholders. How will you leverage this with your personal purchasers and suppliers? And what does this imply for enterprise fashions constructed on info asymmetries? 

On the EEA, we’re asking these identical questions ourselves.

From the outset, our mission has been to assist companies “onboard” into the Ethereum world. Whereas this mission is as essential as ever, supporting companies within the decentralized world of public blockchain is a distinct prospect than doing so for the world of personal blockchain. 

And in order the ecosystem evolves, now we have been evolving with it. And proceed to take action. As I wrote to our members, I shall be spending a substantial amount of my time over the following few months speaking with individuals and organizations within the Ethereum ecosystem to get their views on essentially the most urgent wants of our ecosystem at present and going ahead. 

These kind of discussions in regards to the implications of a shifting panorama are at all times essential. I believe they’re notably essential at the moment second. I’d advocate that companies serious about blockchain do the identical. 

New vistas offered by public blockchain are opening up. All of us needs to be taking a look at the place they could lead.
