The Blockmarket API, developed by Blockchain Foundry on top of the Syscoin product to support the upcoming Blockmarket product release will be certified on Microsoft's Azure Blockchain as a Service Marketplace platform. This certification will make Syscoin the only bitcoin-derived blockchain offering to be certified by Microsoft. Blockchain Foundry will be the only company that both produces a blockchain technology as well as products on top of its own blockchain platform that deliver real world value and are instantly available to end users through Microsoft Azure BaaS. This certification will also mark the release of Blockchain Foundry's first revenue-generating product built on the Syscoin platform (the Blockmarket API).
Blockmarket is Syscoin's first official product built on the Syscoin 2.0 platform. It represents a consumer level product, enabling merchants to stand up their own, fully customized and branded marketplace. It is available in both web and web-mobile formats. In the milestone 1 (M1) release users will be able to experience individual Syscoin marketplaces through the browser and on mobile web. Users will be able to stand up their own marketplaces using Blockmarket and Microsoft Azure or a different hosting provider. Blockmarket can be entirely customized to produce a truly unique "storefront" for every merchant. An accompanying desktop application codenamed "Syscoin Elite" will also serve as a replacement for the current "reference QT wallet".
Consumer product targeted at leveraging new features in Syscoin 2.1.2 to decentralize services that currently only exist via centralized service providers. First product that explores Syscoin use cases outside of a direct consumer goods/services marketplace.
For the purposes of seeking seed funding and further demonstrating the value/use cases for which Syscoin technology can be applied proof of concepts which leverage the new multisignature services will be created for application in the Medical, Legal and/or Real Estate verticals.
Conference Sponsorship and Attendance
Syscoin plans participate as a sponsor as well as attend a Hackathon event targeted at High School students exposing them to new technologies and approaches to solving problems with those new technologies. Syscoin will be one of the technologies with which they can build solutions leveraging our services and blockchain technology.
Syscoin Ecommerce Integration
Syscoin 2.0 integrated with mainstream ecommerce platforms such as Magento, Shopify, OpenCart, and Prestashop. Allows for bidirectional syncing of inventory between Syscoin 2.0 decentralized platform and various centralized offerings.
Blockchain Foundy's second product built on top of the Syscoin platform to be certified by Microsoft for sale in Azure Marketplace.
In the milestone 2 (M2) release of Blockmarket its capabilities will be expanded from being a single marketplace experience to a multi-marketplace experience similar to Shopify. Blockmarket M2 will allow "operators" to stand up marketplaces which multiple merchants can then list their items within. Multiple merchants can operate on a single Blockmarket M2 deployment and if they'd like to migrate to their own standalone marketplace they'll easily be able to do so by exporting to a Blockmarket M1 deployment.

Bot designed to help increase reach of offerings that merchant list on the Syscoin network, providing further incentive to use Syscoin's decentralized marketplace.
