Microsoft Launches Platform For Ethereum-Based Tokens
Microsoft is testing the platform for creating cryptos that allow users to transfer, transact, burn, or mint tokens.
The Azure Blockchain Tokens are built on a permissioned version of the Ethereum blockchain using cloud computing.
It’s worth noting that instead of decentralized cryptos such as BTC that are using miners in order to check the transactions, the platform mentioned above will use Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing in order to reach consensus on transactions.
“Azure Blockchain Tokens is a new Azure managed service that allows [users] to create and manage ledger-based tokens easily to accelerate [their] blockchain solution development. This service provides a set of prebuilt templates and the flexibility to create your own templates.” Microsoft says.
It’s also important to note that Azure Blockchain Tokens has a software development kit that allows companies to quickly and conveniently launch and integrate digital assets into their business.
The ways in which transactions take place will change for good
“With practical applications ranging from streamlining supply chains to managing retail loyalty points programs, tokenization has enormous potential to simplify and accelerate complex business processes – while also making them more secure,” according to official notes.
The online publication the Daily Hodl also notes that the blockchain tech is an extremely powerful concept that will change the ways in which transactions take place for good.
The tech giant is also expecting that the world of public cryptos and public ledgers will merge and will transform industries forever.
