Lisk, an Aachen, Germany-based custom blockchain platform, raised over 14,000 bitcoins (approx. US$5.7M) in an Initial Coin Offering.
The launch of the platform is estimated to be on the 11th April.
The company’s team is working together with Microsoft to bring the Lisk decentralized application platform to the Azure cloud. As a first step Microsoft Azure has officially integrated Lisk into its Azure Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) program – meaning developers worldwide can develop, test, and deploy Lisk decentralized applications using Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform and infrastructure.
Additionally, the company is in a strategic partnership with the research lab Chain of Things which investigates whether blockchain technology can be effective in establishing security in the Internet of Things.
