@mbcalvin: I agree, it was a little confusing as presented. Ethereum is a cryptocurrency that can be used like any other cryptocurrency: traded, held in a wallet, exchanged for fiat or other crypto.
But it also can be used as gas to pay for running the operations of a smart contract.
Check out this tutorial also (not sure why it isn't on c9) that is very similar but much simpler. https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/resources/videos/deploy-a-mean-app-to-azure/
It shows the new support for linux docker on app services.
wasn't build awesome!
