Microsoft has added four more partners to its Azure Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS) program, according to Marley Gray, Microsoft's Director of Technology Strategy US Financial Services.
The four new partners include:
BitPay: a leader in bitcoin payments, providing bitcoin payment processing and local currency payouts to “over 65,000 businesses worldwide.”
Manifold Technology: Manifold's Rewards application is built on the patent-pending Manifold Liquidity Platform (MLP). MLP is a private blockchain capable of "unprecedented" transaction speed and throughput.
LibraTax: LibraTax is the reporting, accounting, audit, and integration layer for blockchain technology and digital assets that is built for the future of digitized ownership and trading.
Emercoin: A digital currency and blockchain platform that focuses on innovative, scalable enterprise services.
Marley also noted the new resources added to the Azure staging marketplace this week, a C++ Ethereum client and CryptoSwap demo from ConsenSys as well as an OpenChain implementation from CoinPrism.
