Google Cloud and Aptos partnership spikes altcoin price
Today, Aptos Labs announced a new collaboration with Google Cloud to help companies and developers set up on the Aptos network more easily. Google Cloud will be one of Aptos’ first cloud partners. It will provide a scalable, secure and sustainable infrastructure where developers on the Aptos network can build and scale their applications.
Speaking at a panel at Token2049 in London, Aptos co-founder and CEO Mo Shaikh detailed the engagement with Simon Baksys, the market entry and business development lead for Google’s Web3 division. Mo Shaikh, co-founder and CEO of Aptos, made the following statement on the subject:
Google Cloud impressed us with their bias in action, their commitment to decentralization in our mission to ensure accessibility for the next billion users, and the capabilities of its infrastructure. The team was agile and ran key step with our team. We are excited about the potential that Google Cloud’s Aptos protocol brings to its users.
“I think it’s the first time a Web2 and a Web3 company have come together in such a meaningful way,” Shaikh said. Also, Shaikh noted that Google Cloud will validate the nodes and join the Aptos main-net. The Aptos Blockchain will also be indexed and made available on Google Cloud’s BigQuery service.
The partnership, which we are reporting as Kriptokoin.com, will host a hackathon next year in addition to launching an accelerator program from Google and the Aptos Foundation. In this context, it aims to encourage new talents. The impact of the news was instantly reflected in the altcoin price. ATP skyrocketed as the market tried to recover.
What will the partnership bring to Aptos?
In partnership with Google Cloud, it will be possible for anyone to power a node on the Aptos network in less than 15 minutes. This marks a big step towards building Aptos ecosystems without hardware requirements and while maintaining reliability, security and speed for the masses. Companies and developers can start using out-of-the-box support to run Aptos full node on Google Cloud in the following ways:
- If you already have a Google Cloud account, it only takes 15 minutes to get the node up and running.
- If you don’t have a Google Cloud account, you can get started with a free trial and $300 credit.
The distribution aims to provide an easy-to-use, reliable way for people to run a full node. Meanwhile, validator support is also coming in the future.
