Microsoft is moving forward with their Azure development kit. It is a serverless blockchain-powered platform, and it will be available to developers globally. The product will be named “Azure Blockchain Development Kit”, and Microsoft claims that it will only add functionality to their Azure Blockchain Workbench.
Blockchain has come under fire at times, but the big players seem to be putting ever more robust blockchain development tools into the public arena. Microsoft says that the new toolkit will add features like off-chain identity and data, messaging application programming interfaces (API) and data monitoring, all of which can be used to create blockchain-based apps.
