In a matter of only a few weeks, the decentralized application and custom Blockchain development platform Lisk, has surged forward into the realm of highest performing crowd-funds of all time. Raising over 4600 BTC in its crowd-fund until now, the Lisk team has announced its first round of strategic partnerships.

In an official Lisk blog post, Lisk CEO Max Kordek commented that:

“Alongside existing partners Ethereum and IOTA, Lisk will fulfill an important advisory role at the Chain of Things research lab. Therefore, by working in collaboration with the participating members to create an open standard for the industry, we hope that our contributions will bring great success to this shared initiative.”

The Lisk team is working together with Microsoft to bring the Lisk decentralized application platform to the Azure cloud. As a first step Microsoft Azure has officially integrated Lisk into its Azure Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) program – meaning developers worldwide can develop, test, and deploy Lisk decentralized applications using Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform and infrastructure.

Coinciding with today’s announcement, the Lisk team is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with the research lab Chain of Things.

The Chain of Things (CoT) Research Lab will investigate whether Blockchain technology can be effective in establishing security using IoT. The aim being for the CoT Research Lab to test the feasibility of Blockchain based Internet of Things applications on a global scale.
