Google Cloud Web3 Blockchain

Google Cloud’s cloud computing division has expanded its presence in the Web3 space by partnering with the Tezos Foundation to become a network validator on the Tezos blockchain. 

This collaboration will allow customers of Google Cloud to deploy Tezos nodes and develop Web3 applications on the blockchain. Tezos is a smart contract platform that powers decentralized applications, with prominent users including Ubisoft and the California Department of Motor Vehicles.

The partnership enables companies and developers to host and deploy RPC nodes for Web3 applications using the Tezos blockchain and Google Cloud infrastructure. 

In a tweet about the announcement, Tezos said:

“The Tezos Foundation will provide new and existing Google Cloud customers access to its corporate baking program. Through the program, Tezos will offer Google Cloud customers that are interested in building Web3 applications, easy deployment of nodes and indexers on the Tezos protocol.”

Additionally, select Tezos incubator startups will receive Google Cloud credits and mentorship through the Google for Startups Cloud Program.

James Tromans, Engineering Director, Web3 at Google Cloud, stated that their infrastructure provides a secure and reliable platform for Web3 founders and developers to innovate and scale their applications. Meanwhile, Mason Edwards, Chief Commercial Officer of the Tezos Foundation, said that the partnership is a step towards achieving institutional adoption and mass-market opportunities for Web3 technology.

This partnership comes after Google Cloud established a team dedicated to digital assets in January 2022, aimed at facilitating the growth and advancement of the blockchain ecosystem.
