We are pleased to announce that Microsoft has officially integrated Lition as a blockchain as a service (BaaS) provider on Azure, making Lition one of the few public/private blockchains currently supported by a major cloud provider like Microsoft.

Microsoft was the first to bring blockchain to the cloud and continues to remain at the cutting edge of blockchain adoption.

Lition & Microsoft Azure

Azure will provide Lition with the opportunity to gain additional traction and usage by making our technology visible to one of the largest customer bases and marketplaces in the industry. Organizations and businesses worldwide can now develop, test, and deploy Lition sidechains and applications easily and efficiently using Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing infrastructure.

Lition’s user community will enjoy a higher grade of convenience with streamlined deployment and management. Anyone can deploy sidechains or join the network as a validator through preconfigured settings on Azure that are available with the click of a button. This eliminates the need for setting up local servers and manually installing nodes.
