The Blockchain Node Engine is Google’s latest service, following Amazon’s lead. It enables Web3 developers to set up blockchain nodes on the cloud of the internet giant.
Google Cloud honors its commitments.
On January 28, 2022, Google Cloud made a unique team dedicated to cryptocurrency and other digital assets public. The business revealed its strategy for making a name for itself in the sector in a post that was highly hyper-focused on blockchain:
- provide deployable blockchain nodes with a single click
- launching its own validator nodes in collaboration with certain partners
- join Google executives in on-chain governance processes
- host services for accessing blockchain data (via Google BigQuery)
Thus, Google Cloud aspires to emulate Amazon, which already provides services for deploying Ethereum nodes.
It is clear why the Blockchain Node Service is being launched on the first smart-contracts platform. Google plans to expand the program to numerous networks, though, following Ethereum: Dogecoin, Band Protocol, IoTeX, Polygon, Dash, Litecoin, XRP, Hedera Hashgraph, Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Dash, Litecoin, Qtum, and even Dogecoin!
Google aims to simplify things for Web3 businesses and developers. It is difficult to maintain a blockchain node, in fact. Putting money aside, synchronizing with the rest of the network is a drawn-out and occasionally unpleasant procedure. Everything should be completed with only one click when using the Google Node Engine. Additionally, customers of the service will be able to benefit from all of the cloud’s security features (DDoS, RPC access). Finally, Google applauds the time and energy savings for any business, which will be able to focus on its goods without worrying about infrastructure.
