Waves smart accounts and smart assets now available on Azure Marketplace

Waves, the custom blockchain application ecosystem, announced that its smart accounts and smart assets are now available to developers on Azure Marketplace in a special extension for Visual Studio Code, which simplifies the process of creating and operating smart contracts.

The functionality of Waves’ smart accounts and smart assets can be applied in a variety of use cases, including supply chain management, verification of documentation, the organization of internal transactions, filing accounting reports and game development.

Two new virtual machine templates in Azure can be used for setting up new options on a public or private blockchain. Waves Platform has been deployed in Azure cloud since 2017.

“Unlike other similar solutions, non-Turing complete smart contracts from Waves offer increased security and protection from vulnerabilities due to the option of restricting functionality to avoid undesirable use”, comments Sasha Ivanov, Founder, and CEO of Waves Platform.

“A special extension for Microsoft Visual Studio Code editor will simplify the process of writing smart contracts for developers, allowing them to work in complete integration with Microsoft Azure cloud,’ he continues. ‘I am confident that users will hugely appreciate the variety of opportunities and possibilities this opens up for them!”

“We believe that supporting open-source platforms and facilitating the widespread availability of contemporary technological tools for the developer community is very important,” says Konstantin Goldstein, Microsoft Russia’s principal technical evangelist.

“Waves is one of world’s leading blockchain platforms, which contributes substantially to the development of an ecosystem for global decentralized solutions, and we are glad to support the company in its development,” he added.
