I'm excited to announce that Chain is LIVE on Azure. Microsoft is a host sponsor of the Chain testnet along with the Initiative for Cryptocurrencies and Contracts (IC3), a collaboration of Cornell University, Cornell Tech, UC Berkeley, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the Technion.
For the first time, developers can install Chain Core (Chain’s distributed ledger) in Azure or locally to start or join a blockchain network, build financial applications, and access in-depth technical documentation and tutorials. Through this partnership you have the option to run your own prototypes on the testnet or create your own private network on Azure, all with a single click.
Adding Chain as a first class citizen on Azure demonstrates Project Bletchley's open blockchain approach aimed at providing enterprise services through a Blockchain Fabric allowing choice in platform for building out next generation solutions on distributed ledger technology.
We are proud to welcome Chain and are excited about future partners releasing into the marketplace in the near future.
