The IBM Blockchain Starter Plan is a new piece of software that is designed to help smaller scale businesses adapt to the modern world of blockchain technology. The software is currently in beta and is being touted as a cheaper alternative to Big Blue's current blockchain applications. The smaller scale version is designed to target low-cost plan startups and developers that are looking to build solutions on the IBM blockchain platform.
The IBM Blockchain Starter Plan is currently free while in beta and is set to be intuitively designed. The lightweight toolkit leverages open-source Linux Foundation's Hyperledger tools and can be easily used to develop a quick and easy-to-use blockchain ecosystem. Unlike most other blockchain focused technologies, IBM is not focused on cryptocurrency and this starter plan is no different. The IBM Starter Plan leverages the blockchain to better help companies develop an ecosystem, while also providing them the tools to focus on what they want.
