Stratis is a blockchain-as-a-service platform that enables institutions and software engineers to seamlessly develop their own enterprise blockchains. The creators of Stratis are attempting to make it easy for any organization to create and deploy blockchains tailored to their specific needs. The defining characteristic of the project is its focus on the C# programming language and ease of integration with the Microsoft .NET framework, which caters to millions of developers around the world. Stratis is in Microsoft’s Azure Marketplace, but it is not one of the featured projects from their trusted projects, which include Microsoft’s own Azure Blockchain Service, R3’s Corda, Ethereum Enterprise Alliance’s (EEA) Quorum, and Chain’s Chain Core. The first ICO to launch on the platform was announced in January 2018.
