  • Polygon Labs and Google Cloud have announced a long-term partnership aimed at enhancing the infrastructure and tools used for Ethereum scaling protocols.
  • The partnership is expected to simplify developer integration, making it easier to build, launch, and grow Web3 products and decentralized applications (DApps) on Polygon, while promoting the adoption of blockchain technology.
  • Google Cloud’s advanced tools and infrastructure will be used to enhance Polygon’s core protocols, including Polygon proof-of-stake (PoS), Polygon zkEVM, and Polygon Supernets, to provide even greater value to its users.

Polygon Labs and Google Cloud have recently announced a long-term partnership aimed at enhancing the infrastructure and tools used for Ethereum scaling protocols. The partnership was unveiled at Consensus 2023 and is expected to provide a significant boost to the Ethereum ecosystem. This collaboration is set to simplify developer integration, making it easier to build, launch, and grow Web3 products and decentralized applications (DApps) on Polygon.

The partnership between Polygon Labs and Google Cloud aims to provide a significant boost to the Ethereum ecosystem. Polygon’s core protocols, including Polygon proof-of-stake (PoS), Polygon zkEVM, and Polygon Supernets, will benefit from Google Cloud’s framework and developer tools. This will make it easier for developers to integrate and create more efficient, cost-effective, and scalable DApps on the Polygon network.

Google Cloud’s Blockchain Node Engine will be used by the Polygon ecosystem to assist with the time-intensive processes and costly overheads of acquiring, maintaining, and operating dedicated blockchain nodes. This specific integration is expected to remove the need for Polygon developers to configure and run Polygon PoS nodes.

The Polygon zkEVM beta, an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) scaling solution, was launched to mainnet in March 2023. It powers reduced transaction costs and increased throughput of smart contract deployments. The partnership with Google Cloud is expected to advance Polygon’s zero-knowledge development, enabling faster and cheaper transactions compared to the existing infrastructure available.

The partnership between Polygon Labs and Google Cloud is aimed at simplifying the development process for Web3 products and DApps, promoting the adoption of blockchain technology by enabling developers to create more efficient, cost-effective, and scalable decentralized applications. This partnership is expected to have far-reaching implications for the development and adoption of blockchain technology.

In South Africa, the partnership between Polygon Labs and Google Cloud is expected to drive innovation and growth in the Web3 space. It will enable developers to create more efficient and cost-effective decentralized applications, making blockchain technology more accessible to the masses. This is a significant development for the country as it seeks to accelerate its digital transformation and explore the potential of blockchain technology.

Polygon has established itself as a leading player in the Ethereum ecosystem, providing scaling solutions and infrastructure to help developers build and launch DApps. With the help of Google Cloud’s advanced tools and infrastructure, Polygon is poised to further expand its offerings and provide even greater value to its users. The partnership between Polygon Labs and Google Cloud represents a significant step forward for the Ethereum ecosystem and is expected to have a positive impact on the adoption of blockchain technology worldwide.
