EPN is an association of companies that have joined forces to jointly use blockchain networks for research and productive purposes.
Any company that meets the minimum requirements can become a member. Only as a member can one actively participate in governance.
SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENT
Together, the members operate various blockchain networks and have concluded framework agreements to ensure stable operation.
Legal compliance and security are ensured by the terms and conditions and the approval processes monitored by the association.
Leading ecosystem of distributed ledger technology research and business models.
Operation of legally compliant networks to explore and take advantage of the potential of distributed ledger technologies.
Independent. Sustainable. Compliant.
End-to-end digitization for cross-company business models
Companies use the blockchain-based network to build cooperative, service-based business models by enabling goods to interact in cross-company processes autonomously. In contrast to centrally operated digital platforms, the network creates industry-specific decentralized ecosystems in which cooperation partners interact with each other in a trusting manner.
Through digital cross-company processes, participating companies are in a position to provide existing services more efficiently and to offer new market-attractive offers by combining their products with services from partners. Learn more in our Case Studies.

QUOTES FROM OUR MEMBERS
Board Member Testimonials
Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our members say:
Countries, cities, corporations and people are to be connected by public, digital roads that promote free exchange of physical and digital goods and services. EPN should be understood as a public good and might lead to a paradigm shift. This free and public digital infrastructure is part of a movement to promote data protection, privacy, security, equality and transparency.
EPN is the missing link to combine compliance, security and scalability as a B2B data infrastructure. Economic and ecological freedom to operate with full EVM core to secure your investment into new cooperative business models. Identity as a core component connects all stakeholder based on new industry standards. helix id uses EPN as the Blockchain backend.
“Why should we build more public infrastructre? […] Today corporate intermediaries providing critical, but privatly owned infrastructre are becoming fewer, larger and more powerful and their failures are increasingly grave.” (Van Valkenburg)
Building public blockchain network infrastructure based on European values is a true alternative.
