does the Ethereum project have any stated desirable path or is it non opinionated? Ethereum is non-opinionated because it is a platform for applications and computer programs. Its generality, in addition to the technologies, is one of the things that can make it difficult to explain: How would I explain Ethereum to a non-technical friend? Cryptocurrency ...

Here's an attempt to answer this question as of February 1 2016, defining Ethereum as the Ethereum Foundation or close to it. Since Ethereum is a platform, this answer excludes funding that is procured by anyone building something on the platform. According to the Ethereum Foundation's blog, there have been 3 companies: Microsoft, Wanxiang, and Omise. ...

In such setups, you'll be most probably using a Proof of Authority (PoA) consensus algorithm. PoW doesn't make sense in such small setups (not safe + wasting energy). For instance, when using geth's clique algorithm, you'll have a number of authorities in the network, which are allowed to seal a block. As long as at least 2/3 of these authorities are honest,...

Not specifically. However you could write your own server side daemon program which would basically act as an oracle: Wait until triggered either by a timer (e.g. Chron Job) or a smart contract (in which case it would have to watch the contract) Connect to the ERP system and gets the data e.g. SAP Netweaver Process the data to extract the parts of it you ...

The iExec or Enigma projects might be what you are looking for. A challenge of this sort of thing is verifying that the parties executed the job honestly and correctly without every node needing to repeat the job - because that would severely limit the complexity of what can be done and defeat the purpose of deligating a large job to a specific node. ...

In ethereum there is no centralized certificate authority server like that of hyperledger fabric. Fabric is a private permissioned blockchain and all the participants need to be known. Hence the CA issues the identity. Ethereum is a public network. Ethereum accounts can be created by anyone. Account creation in ethereum is basically generating a BIP39 ...

Consortium networks can use Ethereum technology. The network design constraints are different and that means consortiums can apply different approaches to specific concerns: Since members of a consortium network are known and admitted into the system by a governance process, they don't generally need to address large numbers of anonymous bad actors. A ...
