Stratis is a blockchain-as-a-service platform that offers several products and services for enterprises, including launching private sidechains, running full nodes, developing and deploying smart contracts, an initial coin offering platform, and a proof-of-identity application. The company also provides cryptocurrency wallets and blockchain consulting services.
Stratis operates its own blockchain powered by a native token, STRAX, used to purchase and operate services such as executing smart contracts, paying for sidechains, and staking as collateral to operate a Masternode - a node on the network that provides a specific needed service.
The platform was first announced in June 2016, and it launched in August 2016. In November 2020, Stratis deployed a new blockchain that uses STRAX instead of its previous STRAT token.
