Google is heading towards own “Blockchain-as-a-Service” solution
Google is one of the most active blockchain investors, outrun only by Japanese SBI Holdings, according to CB Insights. The company actively invests in blockchain technology since 2012. Recently Google has established several new partnerships that will help to implement distributed ledger technology (DLT) on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
Google starts its own blockchain operated projects
Among new partners are Digital Asset, FinTech blockchain developer, and BlockApps, a firm that offers Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS) platform for enterprises.
“DLT has great potential to benefit customers not just in the financial services industry, but across many industries, and we’re excited to bring these developer tools to Google Cloud,”
says Leonard Law, Head of Financial Services Platform, Google Cloud. Digital Asset will integrate their blockchain platform and development services with the GCP.
The BlockApps’ STRATO platform for enterprises will allow testing blockchain applications for different business needs after the GCP adoption.
“BlockApps is delighted to integrate our platform with GCP and support GCP customers, both existing and new, on their journey to build blockchain technology solutions,”
comments Kieren James-Lubin, BlockApps CEO.
Customers can test the integrations for Hyperledger Fabric and Ethereum protocols on the GCP Marketplace. Google thus lines up with IBM, Microsoft, and Amazon – high tech giants that already have BaaS solutions.
