Microsoft Japan and LayerX Startup work together to improve the speed of Adoption Blockchain
layerX is a startup created in August, originally a joint venture between Gunosy and AnyPay. However, they are pursuing their research with blockchain technology in a new partnership with the Japanese arm of Microsoft. Together, the collaboration will contribute to the acceleration of the adoption of blockchain technology.
This work will include the help of the Azure Blockchain-as-a-Service solution that Microsoft already has, which should help promote the expansion of this adoption. In a press release, the partners said,
"We will support the introduction process in its entirety, even up to the technical support of the finished implementations, both companies will work towards the transformation of people's lives and work practices, promoting the implementation of blockchain technology in various sectors" .
The Azure blockchain development kit has just been released this month. Firstly, it focuses on three areas, which "connect interfaces, integrating data and systems and implementing smart contracts and blockchain networks". The decision to participate in this innovative project is just one of the latest changes from Japan showing their ambitious step in the cryptography industry.
There have been several companies that are working to promote the development of blockchain in Japan right now. However, not all platforms are having success in the country. Coincheck and Zaif, both based in Japan, were victims of two hack issues this year, for a total of about $ 600 million in losses.
