Flare Network, a Ripple-powered Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) protocol, has announced a partnership with Google Cloud. The partnership integrates Flare’s API portal with the Google Cloud Marketplace, making it accessible to anyone with a Google Cloud account.

flare networka layer 1 blockchain protocol designed to provide developers with decentralized access to high-integrity data from other chains and the Internet, by integrating its API portal with google cloud market. The move marks the introduction of some of the first blockchain APIs on the platform, giving developers easy access to blockchain transactions and up-to-date state data from Flare nodes and Connected Chain nodes.

The integration extends Google Cloud Marketplace’s built-in support for blockchain APIs, which now includes Algorand, Binance’s BNB Smart Chain, Bitcoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum, Flare, Litecoin, Songbird, and XRP. Google Cloud developers will also have access to future blockchain APIs added to the Flare API portal.

By leveraging blockchain APIs, developers can create applications that execute transactions and query on-chain data related to the latest state of the chain without having to run their own node for each blockchain they want to interact with. This feature is especially useful when developing cross-chain applications that require data from multiple sources.Major exchanges and wallets use API portals as secure their infrastructure.

Integration enables google cloud Users can easily access all of Flare’s current APIs through their existing Google Cloud accounts. In addition, spending on Flare APIs through the Google Cloud Marketplace can count toward a customer’s committed spend on Google Cloud. Josh Edwards, Flare’s vice president of engineering, emphasized the importance of the integration, noting that it reduces barriers to Web3 participation and enables developers to experiment with blockchain technology without incurring high hardware costs and maintenance costs.

James Tromans, Director of Web3 Engineering at Google Cloud, expressed his excitement about the support and Promote Web3 Partners In their ecosystem, cite Flare’s high-performance API integration into Marketplace. Flare’s EVM-based layer 1 aims to enhance the utility of blockchains by providing decentralized access to high-integrity data from other chains and Web2 sources. Each blockchain connected by Flare’s data and interoperability infrastructure will eventually be added to Google Cloud, giving developers access to the top 100 chains.
