Google Cloud announced its Blockchain Node Engine for Web3 development on Friday. The company, in a press release, said the launch is a commitment to help Web3 developers to build and deploy new products on blockchain-based platforms.  

Blockchains consist of transaction data which are encrypted and stored permanently, and act as decentralised databases of sorts. Besides relying on a central entity to validate data, the governing infrastructure is a node — a device, such as a laptop or server, that contains the whole copy of the transaction history of the blockchain. 

While self-managed nodes require constant management and are difficult to deploy, Google’s Blockchain Node Engine is a hosting service that minimises the need for node operations.

Moreover, Web3 companies that require dedicated nodes can deploy smart contracts, relay transactions, and read or write blockchain data with the reliability and performance from Google Cloud network infrastructure. Web3 organisations enjoy the benefits such as streamlined provisioning, secure development, and fully managed operations in their systems. 

Google Cloud customer engineering & Web3 GTM Rajat Pandit shared the news on a LinkedIn post:
