This will facilitate the creation of smart contracts over public and private blockchains, and push forward the development of all types of blockchain applications in these two domains.
Waves is an open-source blockchain platform that enables users to build their own applications. These range from cryptocurrencies to smart contracts and smart assets, and everything in between.
The Waves platform also provides non-turing smart contract options, which can reduce the chances of bugs popping up, as well as issues that cause security problems. Waves has already demonstrated its potential, with the toolkit of the startup presenting better features than those of competitors.
Additionally, Microsoft was also attracted to the Waves Assets and Waves Accounts products that can act as an extension for its Visual Studio Code editor.
All this should help with intuitive creation and integration of smart contracts with the Azure cloud.
