Amazon Offers Third Party Blockchain Platform Into The AWS Marketplace




On March 3, 2017, Blockstack Core became available as a product in the Amazon AWS Marketplace.

Blockstack Core, a bitcoin-based development platform is now available on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace. The platform allows users to take advantage of the blockchain to establish a secure decentralized implementation that permits users to govern their own data and apps without the need for hosting. Developers can build decentralized applications without the need to trust a centralized service or infrastructure. The product was released on March 3, 2017.

The Blockstack platform streamlines the process of setting up bitcoin nodes by establishing a node that increases blockchain sync times. In a recent statement, Blockstack introduced a new feature called FastSync which has been integrated into their latest Blockstack Core version 0.14.1 - this means there is no waiting period to start a node from the Genesis Block.

Blockstack nodes gather the latest state from an authorized remote node and uses that data to sync with the Blockstack network. Traditional bitcoin core clients, which are now over 100GB in size, require a complete download of the blockchain to take place.

In February 2017, Blockstack released the ‘Blockstack Explorer’ that visualizes information on their domain name network. Blockstack is the third blockchain supported application available on the AWS Marketplace, next to Monax and Manifold Technology.
