Breaking News: Amazon is continuing its movement into the public ledger era with yet another strong signal implying they are building more and more tools involved with the futuristic cryptocurrency world by releasing Blockchain Templates.
Amazon is Coming
Just days after patent news broke about Streaming Data Marketplace, Amazon Web Services showcases Blockchain Templates, an open source framework that allows users to design and launch a secure Ethereum blockchain network or Hyperledger fabric blockchain.
AWS Blockchain Templates are setup in a way that combined with AWS CloudFormation Templates, users can save time and energy by not having to manually setup a blockchain network from scratch and create a public or private Ethereum Blockchain as well as a private Hyperledger fabric framework.
The AWS templates for blockchain technology utilize frameworks as containers on the Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS). But for those looking for more common knowledge reliability as to the technical jargon, we turn to the twitter fingers of blockchain developer Julien Bouteloup:
“holy shit ! Amazon has just launched Blockchain Templates which let you launch an Ethereum (either public or private) or Hyperledger Fabric (private) network in a matter of minutes and with just a few clicks.”
That's where the headlines began knowing Amazon is releasing blockchain technology-related enhancements on top of their Streaming Data Marketplace patent. We also think Amazon will buy their way into cryptocurrency mining and be big part of the global hashpower rate.
To wrap up this exciting AWS Blockchain Templates news, we cruised twitter one last time and found another prominent avatar by the name of Brad Mills, saying:
“Companies, developers, basically anyone who would rather run a private or public chain of their own. You can also use it to mine Ether. Not sure if it would be a good financial decision though.”
