Amazon announced on Tuesday, 15th May, that it’s ready to hop aboard the blockchain bandwagon by partnering with Kaleido, a ConsenSys company.

The main goal is to provide Amazon clients with a hassle-free way of moving their services onto blockchain. The start-up, which was launched on the same day, will be subcontracted to help Amazon Web Services (AWS), the tech giant’s subsidiary for cloud computing, implement ledger technologies.

As stated by the AWS team, “Introducing Kaleido to AWS customers is going to help customers move faster and not worry about managing blockchain themselves.”

Befitting partnership between Amazon and ConsenSys’ startup 

Steve Cerveny, one of the founders of Kaleido also mentioned that “They can focus on their scenario, and they don’t have to become PhDs is cryptography, we give them a simple platform to build their company on blockchain.”

This marks Amazon’s biggest move to adopt blockchain. Kaleido is also the first blockchain SaaS solution available on the AWS Marketplace and it’s all about making it as easy as possible for AWS clients to integrate their projects with other AWS solutions such as Amazon Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), Amazon Athena, Amazon CloudWatch, and Amazon EMR, just to name a few.

Amazon, now at the leading front of blockchain implementation

Since Kaleido is based on the Ethereum blockchain and is part of the ConsenSys blockchain incubator, Joseph Lubin stated for CNBC that Amazon’s move “is a heavy duty, full stack way of getting the company into blockchain solutions.”

“Three years ago we were getting calls from companies trying to spell blockchain and trying to order one in a color because their boss told them they should get a blockchain. At this point there are tens of thousands of companies around the world that have real sophistication around this,” Lubin further added.

With this move, Amazon joins the initiative of other tech giants like Microsoft, Facebook, IBM, Accenture, Deloitte, JP Morgan, and HSBC in developing new innovative use cases for the blockchain technology.
