Blockchain-technology development company Blockchain Foundry Inc. has announced it has achieved a major milestone in the form of Microsoft Azure product certification for three products powered by the Syscoin blockchain. This certification is a key step in the company’s evolution in developing blockchain infrastructure and services.

Blockchain Foundry’s Azure offerings now include Syscoin Full Node, a fully hosted version of the Syscoin blockchain. In addition it has a server application for maintaining exchange rates between the Syscoin token and other supported digital and fiat currencies- the Syscoin Price Peg Server. Finally, it includes Syscoin API Server – an API server for interacting with Syscoin’s decentralized service network.

Dan Wasyluk, President and CEO of Blockchain Foundry, stated: “Microsoft Azure has been instrumental in helping us to realize our vision of becoming a leading provider of innovative blockchain services. They have been an extraordinary partner as we have scaled up our organization and we look forward to continued collaboration in the future. With these new product releases, we are opening the door for any developer who uses Azure to easily participate in the development of decentralized applications, using the service layer that the Syscoin blockchain provides. This is the next step in our long term strategy of positioning Syscoin for use in large-scale enterprise applications.”

Principal Program Manager of Microsoft Azure Blockchain Engineering, Marley Gray remarked: “The Microsoft Azure team has collaborated with the Syscoin team since March 2016, and we are pleased to support the launch of their first three products on the Azure platform. They are a valued partner in the Azure Blockchain ecosystem and we look forward to continuing work with the Company.”
