Azure Blockchain-as-a-Service

This sounds so cool.

Many of you know Bitcoin. Underlying bitcoin is the blockchain, which allows complete strangers to transfer money based on cryptography providing the trust factor. The blockchain is a public ledger of who owns what, and once I transfer my bitcoin to you, that gets written to the public record and everyone knows I don’t own it any more.

Now imagine that as a private, members-only blockchain. Microsoft has Blockchain-as-a-Service in Azure. Very cool.

Project Bletchley is a vision for Microsoft to deliver Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) that is open and flexible for all platforms, partners and customers. We’re thrilled to be on this journey with the blockchain community, and are looking forward to helping transform the way we think about and do business today.
