I am interested in blockchain technologies and I am trying to understand the institutional setup of Ethereum.
I could identify the following institutions: (1) The Ethereum foundation
, (2) ETHDEV
and (3) ETHCORE
The foundation (1) is apparently a non-profit foundation based in Switzerland and Vitalik's blog post
earlier today gives some insights into the activities of the foundation. However, I cannot really get a grip on ETHDEV (2) and ETHCORE (3). Are these for-profit firms? If so, how are they funded? People-wise there seems to be a significant overlap.
I would very much appreciate, if anybody could help me out here.
Many thanks in advance!
