Blockchain has recently burst into the modern lexicon. This family of technologies is well-known for powering cryptocurrencies and has become one of the most active areas of technology development. While cryptocurrency gets attention, the underlying blockchain technology holds promise for anything that needs to be done in a secure or distributed way.
SIMBA Chain is focusing enabling anyone to quickly create blockchain distributed applications for iOS, Android, and the web. CEO Joel Neidig and CTO Ian Taylor spoke to Microsoft for Startups about the ways SIMBA's blockchain-as-a-service solution can help developers build decentralized applications (dapps).
“SIMBA stands for Simple Blockchain Applications. It’s a kind of a zero-knowledge platform that you can deploy in literally minutes, where it might take people months to deploy a blockchain network on their own,” said Neidig. “As an analogy, think back to the early days of the internet when people were trying to setup servers or browse the internet in an easy way - it was very difficult. So, our platform brings everything together and you can deploy distributed apps very quickly without any coding skills.”
