Amazon announced it was partnering with ConsenSys, to bring blockchain cloud service Kaleido to its Amazon Web Services (AWS) subsidiary. ConsenSys is a blockchain software technology company founded by blockchain entrepreneur, Joseph Lubin to spread Ethereum to every business on the globe.
As of May 2018, ConsenSys supervises more than 50 blockchain projects, with big names like IBM, Accenture, Deloitte, JP Morgan, and HSBC. Kaleido helps AWS customers jump onto the blockchain without users investing in its technology or needing blockchain know-how to succeed.
As Steve Cerveny, one of the founders of Kaleido, told CNBC. “They can focus on their scenario and they don't have to become PhDs in cryptography, we give them a simple platform to build their company on blockchain.”
Amazon affirmed its choice by announcing: “Kaleido is the first managed blockchain SaaS (Software as a Service) available on AWS Marketplace and is available in AWS regions across the world,”
