Flare, an EVM-based Layer 1 blockchain, has integrated with the Google Cloud Marketplace after launching its API on the platform. As a result of this update, APIs for the blockchains of Algorand, BNB Smart Chain, Bitcoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum, Flare, Litecoin, Songbird, and XRP are all accessible through Google Cloud’s built-in Cloud Marketplace.
The benefits of the integration
Flare’s EVM-based Layer 1 is built to improve upon blockchain’s potential applications by enabling distributed access to high-integrity data sourced from other chains and the Web2. Nodes on Flare and the Connected Chain will now make their blockchain data available to developers.
When blockchain APIs are added to Flare’s API Portal, they will automatically become accessible to developers on Google Cloud. With the Flare API Portal, you can access all of Flare’s chains, as well as any other chains that are linked together using Flare’s data acquisition protocols. In addition, a customer’s committed spend on Google Cloud can include spending on Flare APIs through the Google Cloud Marketplace.
Thanks to the Marketplace integration, all of Flare’s current APIs are readily available to anyone with a Google Cloud account. Google’s Cloud market platform will add support to 100 of the leading blockchains to its once Flare’s data and interoperability infrastructure is fully operational.
Barriers to entry into the Web3 ecosystem become significantly fewer as leading blockchain APIs become more widely available on popular platforms like Google Cloud Marketplace. This reduces the barriers to entry for developers interested in exploring blockchain technology and its multiple uses. For instance, developers no longer have to worry about things like high hardware costs and the high cost of regular maintenance.
Larger organisations and their partners can now try out new Web3 APIs in a controlled, secure environment made possible by the integration. Developer teams can now focus on making and releasing high-quality applications without worrying about the underlying infrastructure.
