Fnality International has joined the largest developer community of enterprise blockchain developers, Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA), Fnality announced.

Fnality is the commercial realization of the Utility Settlement Coin (USC) project led by UBS. It is backed by a consortium of financial institutions including many of the Globally Systemically Important Banks (GSIBs) that supported USC.

It will also have the chance to learn, observe and participate in EEA’s special interest groups or technical working groups that define market requirements needed to contribute to future versions of the EEA specification, helping to scale the number of market categories the specification supports.

Settlement requires all the parties involved to collaborate and cooperate; the EEA’s role is an essential part of that process and we are excited to work with the EEA and the other members to maximize the value of the new technology across the community,” Adam Clarke, CTO of Fnality, said about their partnership with EEA.
