Azure Blockchain Tokens

Easily define, create, and manage ledger-based tokens

Build and define ledger-based tokens easily

Azure Blockchain Tokens Preview makes deploying and managing standard tokens easier than ever. It’s built on the standards developed by the Token Taxonomy Initiative, an open consortium of blockchain industry leaders. Confidently use tokens across blockchain networks in Azure, choosing from a growing set of initiative-compliant templates developed by Microsoft and partners.

Easily define and create Token Taxonomy Framework compliant tokens that represent digital or physical assets.

Manage enterprise-ready tokens with built-in security across ledgers, and use composable templates for common scenarios.

Incorporate business defined tokens into existing applications through a set of open SDKs.

Build tokens based on open community standards developed by blockchain experts.

Accelerate your blockchain development

Easily define, create, and manage compliant tokens. Transfer, transact, burn, or mint tokens more securely across counterparties, regardless of ledger choice. Benefit from composable templates for common scenarios developed by Microsoft and partners. Azure Key Vault and Azure Active Directory are integrated to help secure transactions.
