Kaleido Launches Enterprise Blockchain Marketplace With Plug-and-Play Services

Blockchain, News | November 9, 2018 By:

Blockchain platform Kaleido has launched a blockchain marketplace to accelerate enterprise blockchain projects from proof-of-concepts to live production business networks.

Launched in May of this year by ConsenSys in collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Kaleido is an ethereum-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that radically simplifies deployment and operation of secure private chains. The platform allows organizations to choose between the Quorum and Geth protocol packages, and different consensus algorithms such as RAFT, IBFT and POA. Since its launch, Kaleido has helped organizations create over 1,000 blockchain networks with its Blockchain Business Cloud.

The platform has now launched the Kaleido Marketplace with a full stack of blockchain capabilities needed to build a complete solution, get to live production state and keep the solution up and running. Clients will have access to native AWS integrations and popular services such as HD wallets for privacy and ID registries for organizational identity. They will also be able to access industry products such as Chainlink for smart contract oracles, Viant for supply chain management, OpenLaw and Clause.io for real-time legal contracts, and many others – all offered as plug-and-play.

In tandem with the marketplace, Kaleido is also launching its Partnership Program to provide significant opportunities for third-party providers to join the ecosystem by promoting their offerings in the Kaleido Marketplace.

“We’ve seen successful patterns of deployment as enterprise networks go into production and we’ve baked these best practices into the Kaleido Marketplace services, to help radically simplify the adoption of blockchain and eliminate some of the specialized blockchain expertise needed,” said Kaleido Founder and COO, Sophia Lopez.

According to the early adopters of the Kaleido Marketplace, the platform eliminates 80 percent of the custom code required to build their blockchain projects. Commodity trade and finance network Komgo, one Kaleido’s clients, said that the marketplace will help them select best protocols in development across the ecosystem and use existing building blocks for an optimized solution.

“Now with the proof of concepts and pilots behind us, Kaleido will help us deliver production ready products for a large number of participants at a very fast pace,” said Souleïma Baddi, CEO of Komgo.

“The reality is only about 10 percent of an enterprise blockchain project is the blockchain itself. There are many other application, data and infrastructure components required to go into production,” said Kaleido Founder and CEO, Steve Cerveny. “I’m very excited that we have a whole cloud of blockchain technologies pre-integrated for our clients to use. The Kaleido Marketplace is a one stop shop for all things enterprise blockchain.”
