Microsoft has admitted Synechron into its ‘Azure Blockchain Council’. The council includes companies which develop applications using Blockchain technology on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. While the exact details of firms who are party to this new project remain unclear, with Microsoft being cautious about revealing any additional members, Synechron, a financial services consulting firm which launched a Blockchain accelerator program last year, along with a number of Financial Innovation centres across the world in 2017, has revealed itself as the first member of the council. According to the firm, Synechron was chosen as a council member because of this proven track record in developing Blockchain applications on Ethereum, Quorum, Corda, and Hyperledger platforms. “We are delighted to have been chosen by Microsoft to be a founding member of the Blockchain Partner Council.
