So by now we have all heard of Amazon’s AWS blockchain templates. But what does this really mean to the world of blockchain technology?
I’ll keep it simple. It’s fantastic news. But why? Well, if you haven’t taken the time to properly have a look, their off the shelf frameworks designed to work with the likes of ethereum or Hyperledger Fabric allow for super-fast deployment of a blockchain network, either public or more private with the Hyperledger. One question I have is, will the platform be built on other potential platforms like the greatly awaited EOS, dubbed as the potential ethereum killer?
You have to ask yourself, AWS would only launch a blockchain framework for one reason and one reason only – they believe that blockchain is a future mainstream platform and when one of the largest, most successful online companies of all time does that, you may as well take that as a solid market indicator.
This is a huge step towards bringing blockchain to every possible application, such as healthcare, logistics, recruitment and many other usable everyday processes where secured ledger technology can enhance and improve.
For those of us in the crypto, token, ICO space, you could allow us a selfish moment of glee when we say this is brilliant news for the entire community. Anyone who is currently going through the process of an ICO raise and is building their blockchain platform on the ERC-20 will know that Amazon’s use and further mainstreaming of this blockchain can only mean one thing for the value of ethereum… UP.
But let’s look at it from a less selfish point of view. Mainstream mass application blockchain services and templates from AWS will spring a raft of new platforms that will improve the lives of each and every one of us. Sounds far-fetched, but it really isn’t. Remember how the Internet revolutionized our lives? Well, in a less in your face fashion, blockchain will incrementally improve many of the services we use.
Another question you have to ask yourself is if a mainstream brand like Amazon is doing this, who else is going to bring blockchain to the forefront of the development world? Both Oracle and IBM have developed their own blockchain platforms. However, it has received quite the public reception that Amazon has, and arguably it’s because Amazon is a far heavier consumer-facing brand.
What you can assume from this is that other mainstream tech companies will surely follow suit and create their own development and product enhancement services as these giants compete to be the major blockchain frameworks.
All in all, this only further supports the inevitable growth of the blockchain, crypto, ICO and token market. If there ever was a time to start paying attention to this industry, it is now.
From my side, I am very excited and looking forward to what the blockchain world can expect from the rest of 2018.

The launch of AWS Blockchain Templates for Hyperledger Fabric and Ethereum by Amazon Web Services recently has been phenomenal. This will hasten the process of building new blockchain networks. About the launch, Jeff Barr, the Chief Evangelist for AWS posted on the AWS blog on 19th April, “We are launching AWS Blockchain Templates today. These templates will let you launch an Ethereum (either public or private) or Hyperledger Fabric (private) network in a matter of minutes and with just a few clicks. The templates create and configure all of the AWS resources needed to get you going in a robust and scalable fashion.”
Prior to this new relationship, Amazon Web Services had joined hands with Corda R3, Sawtooth, PokitDok, and Quorum. Corda lets the users create dApps on the AWS platform. However, with the help of the latest AWS Blockchain Templates, the users can develop fully fledged Ethereum network within a few minutes. The same goes for Hyperledger network. The difference is that the Hyperledger network launched will be completely private while the Ethereum ones can be private or public.
When developing Ethereum templates, the Amazon Web Services users have the option to choose from two different launch options. The blockchain framework chosen as containers by the user will be deployed by AWS Blockchain Templates directly on an EC2 instance fuelling Docker or on the Amazon Elastic Container Service cluster (ECS). Ethereum networks launched with the help of Amazon Web Services will most probably support Ethereum mining. The EthStats page will keep an eye on the network metrics. Amazon will also give an EthExplorer toolkit to the clients such that they can reconnoiter the transactions and the smart contracts that are stored in the ledger. As the networks will be developed directly into the user’s Amazon VPC, it will allow the user to access the subnets of VPC and Access Control Lists. The user also has the option to reduce the use of resources by utilizing granular permissions allocated with AWS IAM.
This venture will be beneficial for many industries as they can launch both private and public Ethereum networks through AWS for analysis of critical financial data and audit and risk assessment tasks and so on.
Ethereum Alliance and Enigma (ENG) and Decentralized Identity Foundation
Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) and the Decentralized Identity Foundation (DIF) have incorporated Enigma (ENG) as a member recently. The cryptocurrency, Enigma (ENG) focuses on privacy, security, and scalability. The platform, Enigma Data Marketplace, launched three weeks prior to this announcement acts as a bridge between data providers and apposite data consumers. The objective of Enigma (ENG) is to assimilate crypto world and financial datasets.
Enigma is also looking forward to improvising decentralization for blockchains by conforming smart contracts like Ethereum’s into “secret contracts”. This technology will hide entered data from the code-executing nodes on the network of Enigma. It is a step that will ensure the safety of sensitive data and is believed to be capable of bringing out hitherto unknown areas for development. These were mainly hindered by privacy concerns. It is expected that this type of platform will enable merging of datasets across several industries by eradicating the barriers that prevent corporate collaborations. This is one of the major reasons for acceptance of Enigma by Enterprise Ethereum Alliance and Decentralized Identity Foundation.
Apart from this new entrance, EEA boasts of notable members like Intel, Accenture, J.P. Morgan, Santander, BP, Bancor, CME Group and many others. The objective is to “evolve Ethereum into an enterprise-grade technology”. Enigma plans to launch Catalyst, its first protocol along with its mainnet in Q3 of this year. The format will be compatible Ethereum such as to make it accessible to all the members of EEA. The Digital Identity Foundation, on the other hand, focuses on keeping one’s data and proof of identity private. As explained in the blog of Enigma, “Enigma enables individuals to share claims without over-sharing sensitive data, i.e. proving you are over 21 without revealing your birthday.”
A Little about Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA)
Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) is a not-for-profit and is supported by the industry to basically develop and promote Ethereum based technology open-source reference architectures. This way Ethereum is evolving as an enterprise-grade technology whose main areas of interest are scalability, security, privacy, and confidentiality.
After the scare of the first quarter in 2018, it seems Ethereum (ETH) is back on its feet. Currently, according to coinmarketcap.com the price of Ethereum is $639.60 USD (3.88%) approximately. (As of 23rd April 2018). As the second quarter progresses, it is expected that the price will increase and will soon break the $648 mark. Currently, it seems that the charts are depicting a bullish trendline. This may be the result of the new partnerships of Ethereum and the efforts of EEA.

This year should go down in history as the year of the blockchain. In 2017 crypto-currencies and blockchain businesses emerged. This year they literally took off. To stay up with the tech times, major companies are now investing resources into blockchain-based solutions and services.
Online retail giant Amazon is the latest to jump on the blockchain bandwagon with the launch of its own Amazon Web Services (AWS) ‘blockchain-as-a-service’ platform last week. The system will enable developers to set up their own blockchain-based projects by using pre-designed templates. The firm’s cloud computing division is going into direct competition with similar offerings from the likes of Oracle and IBM.

Using two different platforms, AWS will enable users to access a pre-built blockchain framework upon which to expand their projects. The technology choice will be Ethereum, which currently powers the majority of new blockchain projects and initial coin offerings, and Hyperledger Fabric, an open source blockchain development solution developed by the Linux Foundation.
Using pre-built templates gives companies an edge on rolling out blockchain projects faster. However they will still need some in-house technical expertise since it is a certainly more involved than setting up an email server or building a website. A guide to how to get started has been posted on the company blog but it is likely that most small to medium enterprises are simply not yet ready to deploy this technology for mainstream operations. Many will still be running decade-old operating systems on their office computers, so Amazon’s offerings seem, for now at least, to be another way of keeping up with the Joneses.
Crypto-currency has gone way beyond virtual money over the past year and a number of communities and companies also offer similar services on which they base the value of their digital tokens. EOS market capitalization currently sits just over $11 billion, which makes it the fifth largest altcoin. Just like Ethereum, the community provides a type of operating system upon which decentralized applications (dApps) can be built. The network is highly scalable and provides accounts, authentication, databases, asynchronous communication and the scheduling of applications across multiple computers.
The list of companies flocking towards the technology in an effort to gain an edge on their competitors is growing. In China, where crypto-currency exchanges are currently banned, Huawei, Baidu and Tencent already have their own blockchain platforms and it is likely that Alibaba will not be far behind.
There are a number of advantages in using a decentralized solution over a centralized one owned by a mega-corporation. The Amazon system is free to download but the tech giant will still charge for and control cloud-based services needed to run projects built on AWS, and this seems to be where its interests lie with this offering.

Amazon blockchain-as-a-service EOS AWS The Chain Oracle IBM Ethereum Hyperledger Fabric Lisk Cardano Blockchain Comments
With a view to make it faster and easier for developers to build and deploy secure blockchain networks, Amazon has launched its Amazon Web Services Blockchain Templates. Thanks to these templates you will be able to concentrate your attention only on creating your blockchain-based applications and not to waste your time and forces for setting up your blockchain network manually.
For using AWS Blockchain Templates you do not need to pay any additional fees, you pay only the amount that is required for running a blockchain network. You pay only for those resources that you really use. But it is not the only benefit of using these templates.
They also provide you with a chance of fast deployment. It will take you just some minutes to deploy a blockchain network on Amazon ECS or Amazon EC2 instances. As a result, you are able to proceed to building your applications much faster.
Moreover, AWS Blockchain Templates offer you a choice from two the most demanded blockchain frameworks that provide support to two versions of the technology: Ethereum and the Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Fabric. But you should also take into consideration that both these frameworks offer smart contract functionality, distributed consensus algorithms and access control features. But there are some obvious differences.
An open-source blockchain framework Ethereum allows you to develop blockchain applications that run exactly as created. There is no downtime, risk of fraud and censorship. Moreover, involvement of third-party is not required. Ethereum is a good option for those who prefer to transact with peers on the public Ethereum network, or want to utilize Ethereum’s Solidity smart contract language. It also will suit those who want to build a new public network.
Meanwhile, an open-source blockchain framework from the Linux Foundation known as Hyperledger Fabric will also enable you to create blockchain applications. And it also provides you with access control and permissions for data on the blockchain. Hyperledger Fabric will be a more appropriate variant for those who need to establish a private blockchain network, or want to limit visibility of transactions that can be seen for each party.
What is also important, in both cases despite your choice, AWS Blockchain Templates have some extra tools for managing, controlling and monitoring of your blockchain networks.
In his blog post announcing the launch of AWS Blockchain Templates, AWS vice president Jeff Barr wrote that today some people still do not have full understanding what exactly these technologies have brought us. “Either way, it is clear that there are a lot of intriguing possibilities and we are working to help our customers use this technology more effectively,” he added.
Nevertheless, Amazon is not the first company to offer its users opportunities of this kind. Oracle started a similar platform six months ago. In March, IBM announced the launch of its Hyperledger-based platform for startups for easier creation of blockchain project. And last week Chinese tech giant Huawei revealed its plans to start a new blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) Hyperledger-based platform.
