“Through this, customers can develop application services such as user authentication, payment settlement, and proof of originality using only one of three technologies and can easily apply to other technologies,” it added.
Nexledger Universal is available as platform as a service (PaaS) in the Microsoft’s Azure marketplace, allowing customers to experience it in cloud environment without the need for separate server and application installation.
“We plan to expand our cloud-based blockchain platform by registering Nexledger Universal on other cloud marketplaces,” said Jeanie Hong, senior vice president, leader of Blockchain Center of Samsung SDS.
