We look forward to working actively with the members of this alliance to shape the blockchain adoption by enterprises.”
 
“It’s great to have Wipro as a founding member of the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance. Having organizations like Wipro driving purpose-built solutions and accelerating innovation for businesses, adds significant credibility to the Enterprise Ethereum ecosystem,” said Marley Gray, Principal Blockchain Architect, Microsoft.
