Blockchain technology has gained much attention recently, with developers exploring its potential uses in various fields. However, accessing blockchain data can be challenging, particularly for those who need to become more experienced in managing blockchain nodes. To address this issue, Flare, a Layer 1 blockchain, has integrated its API Portal on Google Cloud Marketplace, making it one of the first blockchain APIs available on the platform.
#Flare has integrated its @APIPortal on @googlecloud Marketplace, launching some of the first #blockchain APIs on the platform. Developers can use the Marketplace to easily access nodes of the top blockchains, including BTC, ETH, BNB, XRP & FLR.https://t.co/c3dFq6R0Oh

The integration allows developers to access blockchain data from Flare’s nodes and Connected Chain nodes via Google Cloud Marketplace, making it easy to perform blockchain transactions and query up-to-date blockchain states.
The Marketplace now supports blockchain APIs for Algorand, BNB Smart Chain, Bitcoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum, Flare, Litecoin, Songbird, and XRP. Additionally, any blockchain APIs that are added to Flare’s API Portal in the future will also be available to Google Cloud developers.
By including Flare in the Google Cloud Marketplace, blockchain app development teams no longer have to manage their blockchain nodes or rely on public APIs. This development is a game-changer for the blockchain industry, and Flare’s VP of Engineering, Josh Edwards, emphasizes that it is critical for the global adoption of FLR solutions.
With this new connectivity, blockchain developers can focus on building innovative apps that leverage Flare’s power without getting bogged down by the complexities of blockchain management. This is a significant step forward for the industry and will pave the way for the widespread adoption of blockchain technology in the future.
James Tromans, Head of Web3 Engineering at Google Cloud, expressed excitement about supporting and promoting the ambitions of Web3 partners in their ecosystem with the integration of Flare’s high-performance APIs into their Marketplace.
Flare’s EVM-based Layer 1 is designed to extend the utility of blockchain by providing decentralized access to high-integrity data from other chains and Web2 sources. Ultimately, every blockchain connected by Flare’s data and interoperability infrastructure will be added to Google Cloud, giving developers access to the top 100 chains.
Integration of Flare’s API Portal on Google Cloud Marketplace is a significant step in making blockchain technology more accessible to developers. It provides a seamless way for developers to access blockchain data without complex node management, ultimately enabling them to create new and innovative applications using blockchain technology.
