A new startup that hopes to assist with blockchain implementation at the enterprise level has just made its job easier. In collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Kaleido introduced the Kaleido Marketplace, which offers protocols and tools for all aspects of new blockchain projects "from the app to the chain".
According to a Bloomberg report, Kaleido is supervised by ConsenSys and is just one of the 50 blockchain projects managed by the group. Consensys has been around since 2014, having been introduced by the co-founder of Ethereum, Joe Lubin. Kaleido made its debut last May and supports enterprise-level businesses through its Blockchain Business Cloud (BBC) platform.
The Kaleido Marketplace will function as an extension of the BBC. The CEO of the company, Steve Cerveny, explained: "The reality is that only about 10 percent of a business blockchain project is the blockchain itself.There are many other applications, data and components of the infrastructure needed to go into production.We knew that customers who were struggling to adopt blockchain needed more help than the simple chain.We knew we needed more advanced components [that were] easily implemented and pre-integrated. "
Throughout the market, Kaleido will offer a full-stack solution, providing everything from development tools to end-user application interfaces. It will allow companies to quickly accelerate their blockchain solutions, allowing them to start using technology as quickly as possible. In addition to being able to manage the blockchain network, there are tools that will also help companies manage their blockchain protocols and infrastructure.
Kaleido already has a number of customers, Komgo, Radiant Earth and Greenfence Consumer. The Komgo commodity platform uses the platform and has a number of financial institutions in its network, including BNP Paribas, Koch Supply & Trading, Citi, Shell, ING and Société Générale.
Komgo's CEO, Souleïma Baddi, added: "Building on an open blockchain system, Komgo can choose among the best ecosystem development protocols and use the existing building blocks for an optimized solution. and of the pilots behind us, Kaleido will help us provide products ready for production for a large number of participants at a very fast pace.
