The Ethereum project is evolving nicely, as things are finally starting to come to fruition after two years of intensive development. Now that the Ethereum Frontier has been established, the time has come to look ahead and focus on more support for the lightweight client. Casper will play an important role in this process, and now is an opportune time to explain what this project is all about.
During the second day of the Ethereum DevCon1 conference, most of the focus was shifted towards developers and the concept of DApps. It is no secret that the Ethereum protocol allows many different types of technological innovation. Decentralized applications will play an important role in achieving that goal.
Development of new applications will require a ton of effort from developers and a different approach to traditional coding. None of this would be possible without thinking of the Ethereum blockchain as a service which is where the recent partnership with Microsoft Azure will play a pivotal role. Deploying a virtual machine for Ethereum purposes will only take one click, and coders can start tinkering around within mere minutes.
