IBM & Microsoft Weigh in on the Battle Between Private and Public Blockchains
However, Microsoft is now moving forward and experimenting with the technology behind Bitcoin, Blockchain – the distributed ledger system on which Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are built.
Microsoft is also trying to utilize the revolutionary technology to its advantage by building what it is terming a “certified blockchain marketplace” on Microsoft Azure.
Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform that is used for building, deploying, and managing applications and services through a global network of datacenters.
IBM has been working on its own version of the blockchain technology and plans to test it this year.
