As the year keeps advancing forward, a lot of top altcoins on the market are starting to get further along their highly-anticipated roadmap events. EOS (EOS) and TRON (TRX) are both set to launch in the coming months, and some of the highest-potential projects – like VeChain – are also putting out their platforms soon. But, while so many coins with the most buzz still have late-2018 or early-2019 mainnet release dates, a new generation of product launches has begun – and the Stratis (STRAT) ICO platform is one of the systems that has finally arrived.
Well, it’s arriving tomorrow:

So, what kind of cryptocurrency is this one anyway?
What is Stratis (STRAT)?
In case you weren’t already aware, Stratis (STRAT) is a Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS) platform, where small businesses can launch their own ICO events and blockchain applications. The whole point of this project is to make launching applications simple, so that businesses don’t need to be super tech-smart in order to be able to interact with the network.
This is how the company describes itself: “We offer simple and affordable end-to-end solutions for development, testing and deployment of native C# blockchain applications on the .Net framework.”
Not only do they provide the infrastructure to launch blockchain projects, they also have consulting services that help its users along the development journey.
More Stratis (STRAT) launches are on the immediate horizon
It’s not just this ICO launching platform that’s launching soon, either. There will be a smart contract component to this platform, and the Alpha version of that software is getting released on May 16. It’s just the Alpha, so it is still a little far off from the live version launch – but the fact that the software will already be out in the world is significant.
On top of that, according to CoinCalendar.cc, the very first ICO to launch on the Stratis (STRAT) network is expected to happen sometime this month. The project is called GLUON, and there is still no official date set at this point in time – but you can sign up for the whitelist.
