Back in November 2015, Microsoft Azure announced the availability of Blockchain-as-a-Service via Ethereum, in partnership with the leading Enterprise provider of Ethereum Blockchain solutions, Consensys.
Since then, our Financial Services CTO, Marley Gray, has been posting nearly every other week nearly every other week about the new partners Microsoft has in this space. We currently have 20 Blockchain providers waiting to join the Microsoft BaaS program.
And it’s gained steam, as reported in Nasdaq.com.
