  • Flare partnered with Uppercent earlier this year to launch an NFT marketplace for e-learning. 

Flare integrates its API Portal on Google Cloud Marketplace

Flare, a Layer 1 blockchain that gives developers decentralized access to high-integrity data from other chains and the internet, has announced the integration of its API Portal on Google Cloud Marketplace.

In a press release shared with Coinjournal, the team said it is launching some of the first blockchain APIs on the platform. 

This latest cryptocurrency news means that blockchain data from Flare’s nodes and Connected Chain nodes can be accessed by developers using Google Cloud Marketplace to perform easy blockchain transactions and read up-to-date states.

Thanks to this integration, Google Cloud’s built-in Cloud Marketplace now supports blockchain APIs for Algorand, BNB Smart Chain, Bitcoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum, Flare, Litecoin, Songbird, and XRP.

Furthermore, the Flare team said all of the blockchain APIs that are added to its API Portal in the future would be made available to Google Cloud developers. 

With blockchain APIs, developers can create applications that carry out transactions and query on-chain data pertaining to the chain’s latest state.

By accessing APIs, developers no longer need to run their own nodes for the blockchains they wish to interact with. This is a useful feature for developers, especially when creating cross-chain applications that must query multiple data sources. 

Developers can access Flare APIs using their existing Google Cloud account

The Flare team informed developers that they can access all of Flare’s current APIs via their existing Google Cloud account.

While commenting on this latest development, Josh Edwards, Flare’s VP of Engineering, said; 

“Greater availability of leading blockchain APIs on platforms such as Google Cloud Marketplace reduces the barriers to Web3 participation. It makes it easier for developers to experiment with blockchain technology and its many use cases without being burdened by onerous hardware costs and ongoing maintenance. It also opens up the possibility for larger organizations and partners to experiment with a safe, secure, and approved set of Web3 APIs. As a result, developer teams have the flexibility to create applications without any infrastructure headache, which allows them to focus on creating and shipping great products.”

James Tromans, Head of Web3 Engineering at Google Cloud, also said;

“We’re excited to support and promote the ambitions of our Web3 partners in our ecosystem, with the integration of Flare’s high-performance APIs into our Marketplace.”

Flare has been busy creating despite the bear market. In February, Flare partnered with Uppercent to launch the first NFT marketplace for e-learning

Flare is an EVM-based Layer 1 blockchain that gives developers decentralized access to high-integrity data from other chains and the internet.
