Google, continues its move into Web 3.0 and crypto with the launch of the Google Cloud Blockchain Node Engine. The service will allow developers to rely on Google Cloud to deploy a new node, ideally making the process easier, faster, and more secure, the company said in a blog post.
James Tromans, who leads Google Cloud Platform’s Web 3.0 product, explained that the services offer more perks than competing node providers, where you share “nodes with many other customers and you do not retain configurability.”
According to the announcement, “Ethereum will be the first blockchain supported by Blockchain Node Engine.” Tromans disclosed that Google will launch support for other chains in the future.
This latest news follows the tech giant’s recent partnership with Coinbase in order to drive Web3 innovation. With the latest blockchain engine product, “Web3 companies who require dedicated nodes can relay transactions, deploy smart contracts, and read or write blockchain data with the reliability, performance, and security they expect from Google Cloud compute and network infrastructure.”
