Microsoft’s Azure Blockchain-as-a-service program continues its expansion with the addition of several new tools and partnerships. Marley Gray, US Financial Director of Technology Strategy at Microsoft, announced the four new partnerships in a blog post: Bitcoin payment processor BitPay; private blockchain rewards program Manifold Technology; blockchain-based digital asset accounting/reporting software solutions provider LibraTax; innovative digital currency Emercoin.
The addition of two new resources was also announced. ConsenSys’ C++ Ethereum stack implementation, which allows Ubuntu users to launch single node private networks, and CoinPrism’s OpenChain Validator Single Node, are now available to Azure blockchain developers.
The Azure BaaS portal is still under development and many other partners are likely going to be added in the near future:
“We are looking forward to adding our new partner offerings into the marketplace as we transition into the Azure Portal over the next several weeks. We hope to welcome new partners into the Azure Blockchain Ecosystem soon!”
