• Flare Network, a Layer 1 blockchain protocol, has announced its partnership with Google Cloud to integrate its API Portal with the Google Cloud Marketplace.
• This integration provides developers with easy access to blockchain transactions and up-to-date state data from Flare’s nodes and Connected Chain nodes.
• The integration expands Google Cloud Marketplace’s built-in support for blockchain APIs, now encompassing Algorand, Binance’s BNB Smart Chain, Bitcoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum, Flare, Litecoin, Songbird, and XRP.
Flare Network Partners With Google Cloud
Flare Network has partnered with Google Cloud to integrate its API Portal with the Google Cloud Marketplace. This integration enables developers to easily access blockchain transactions and up-to-date state data from Flare’s nodes and Connected Chain nodes. By leveraging blockvchain APIs, developers can create cross-chain applications without the need to run their own node for each blockchain they want to interact with.
Accessible To Any Google Cloud Account Holder
The integration makes the API Portal accessible to anyone with a Google Cloud account. Furthermore, expenses on Flare APIs through the Marketplace can count towards a customer’s committed spend on Google Cloud. This reduces barriers for Web3 participation by enabling developers to experiment with blockchain technology without incurring high hardware costs and maintenance.
Google Coud Marketplace now supports Algorand, Binance’s BNB Smart Chain, Bitcoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum, Flare Litecoin Songbird & XRP in addition to future blockchains added to the API Portal which will be equally accessible through their existing accounts. Major exchanges & wallets use this feature as a safeguard for their infrastructure as it allows them access all of flare’s current APIs through their existing accounts on GCP (Google cloud platform).
Impact Of The Integration
The Vice President of Engineering at Flare Networks Josh Edwards highlighted that integrating into GCP is important as it directly impacts web 3 adoption as it reduces barriers of entry which empowers more people participate in web 3 platforms without having any hardware knowledge or cost associated in running such projects/ protocols etc . Similarly head of web 3 engineering at google cloud James Tromans also expressed his enthusiasm about supporting projects like flare & promoting web 3 partners in their ecosystem .
The integration of Flare Network’s API portal into the google cloud marketplace provides an easier way for developers & users alike who are looking forward in experimenting or using web3 technologies , by providing them accesses to all current APIs through their existing GCP accounts . It will help major exchanges & wallets by safeguarding their infrastructure while allowing them easy accesses all of flares current APIS via one single platform i;e GCP account .
