One of the world's largest electrical companies is teaming up with Ethereum App iExec on a new test. EDF, the fifth largest electrical utility company with a $33 billion market cap, has launched its visual simulator software GPUSPH on iExec, a decentralized application that operates on Ethereum mainnet. With this, EDF can test how the program operates on a blockchain rather than a more normal computing environment.
