Google Cloud joins Polygon’s Proof-of-Stake (PoS) community as one in every of its decentralized validators.
In a Sept 29 announcement, the tech big will develop into one of many 100+ validators that helps safe the blockchain leveraging Google’s popularity for safety providers in a number of areas.
Per the official launch Polygon will make the most of the identical infrastructure used to energy Gmail and YouTube rising consumer confidence because the Ethereum layer 2 battle thickens.
“The identical infrastructure used to energy @YouTube and @gmail is now serving to to safe the quick, low-cost, Ethereum-for-all Polygon protocol.”
The announcement was confirmed by Google Cloud Singapore’s official account with a tweet that reads, “We are actually serving as a validator on the Polygon PoS community, contributing to the community’s collective safety, governance, and decentralization alongside 100+ different validators.”
Google Cloud serving as a validator will participate within the community’s governance function, function nodes, and stake MATIC.
Google strategic web3 collaboration
This transfer is a part of Google’s wider plans for the blockchain ecosystem because it continues to roll out key partnerships in current months.
In April, Google introduced providing cloud providers for Polygon’s zkEVM scaling answer, assist for app chains, and a $200,000 Google Cloud credit score funding for Polygon-backed startup.
It was defined that the cloud service supplier will supply node engines and deploy one-click deployment of nodes.
“Google Cloud will assist speed up the adoption of core Polygon protocols w/ enterprise infrastructure & instruments.”
Polygon is just not the only beneficiary of Google’s foray into distributed ledger know-how (DLT) with the corporate kicking off offers with Tezos, Solana, Ronin Community, and so on.
Final week, the corporate expanded blockchain providers on its BigQuery including 11 new networks along with Bitcoin, Bitcoin Money, Ethereum Traditional, and so on.
In keeping with the corporate, the transfer will give builders quicker entry to public knowledge throughout a number of chains as they start constructing decentralized functions (dApps) and creating sensible contracts.
“We’re doing this as a result of blockchain foundations, Web3 analytics corporations, companions, builders, and prospects inform us they need a extra complete view throughout the crypto panorama, and to have the ability to question extra chains. They wish to reply advanced questions and confirm subjective claims,” the assertion reads.
Polygon efforts at scalability
With current competitors and upgrades available in the market, together with the Ethereum ecosystem with the launch of Holesky testnet to make the platform extra scalable, Polygon supplied extra providers to construct consumer adoption.
Polygon 2.0 stands out as a serious try at scalability following claims of making the worth layer of the web.
It was constructed to assist a number of chains, aiding cross-chain transactions and liquidity with out jeopardizing community safety and scalability.
“Polygon 2.0 is a community of ZK-powered L2 chains, unified through a novel cross-chain coordination protocol. For a consumer, the whole community will really feel like utilizing a single chain.”
