Stratis, a platform offering native C# and .Net end-to-end blockchain solutions today announced that its ICO application is now listed and available for deployment via the Azure Marketplace, making it the first blockchain-based web app solution available on the marketplace.
Following the May release of the Stratis ICO Platform, which allows an ICO to be deployed in minutes, the Stratis development team has implemented a number of enhancements.
The updates further enhance the utility of the platform, making it even easier to run a compliant ICO.
Firstly, the Stratis ICO Platform now allows the issuer to screen out participants by geography. By integrating functionality from IP Stack, the ICO platform now identifies an ICO participant’s geography by their IP address, with a screening list to limit the use of VPNs and TOR. This enhancement is an important step for ICO issuers that wish to avoid contributions from a particular geography for regulatory or legal reasons. For example, it is now straightforward to screen out contributions from the US.
Further, the Stratis ICO Platform now utilizes Hierarchical Deterministic Wallets. This provides added security for issuers as funds collected during the ICO are not stored on a server. As part of today’s announced enhancements, the Stratis Breeze Wallet now includes additional features required to display ICO contributions that breach the address gap-limit. This update means issuers using the Breeze Wallet with its new ‘Advanced Tab’ can very reliably and simply retrieve their ExtPubKey, generate addresses and resynchronize to a given date.
