Google announced its partnership with the New York-based startup Digital Asset, to provide a set of tools and assets to solution architects to develop Blockchain applications without too much coding. Google already has a partnership with BlockApps, a startup which helps the people make decentralized apps and it announced the latest collaboration on Twitter.
According to Google, its Cloud customers can now use distributed ledger technology (DLT) frameworks by using Digital Assets and BlockApps. More details are expected to be unveiled at the Google Next ’18 event this week. With this deal, Google Cloud has also joined Digital Assets developer program private beta, which lets developers on the Cloud access the DAML software development kit.
Full Stack Solution for Developers
Digital Asset’s CEO Blythe Masters stated in a blog post that the partnership would provide a full stack solution so they can unleash the potential for web paced innovation in Blockchain.” In exchange for early access to the software, the Digital Assets tells that Google Cloud will help it to reach a wider audience of developers across industry segments thereby providing a win-win situation for both.
The move signals that Google is looking into digital ledger technology to give its cloud services an edge over Microsoft and Amazon Web Services. Google had been investing in startups with digital ledger experience since March and that’s the reason for this deal with Digital Asset and BlockApps.
A Giant Partnership for Digital Assets
Digital Asset plans to grow its DAML platform-as-a-service (PaaS) program through this deal, by providing a solution to aid developers trying to test or launch Blockchain applications. With this partnership, Google developers can access a proprietary programming language for smart contracts. They can build Blockchain apps and also down the line, Google may license these apps to other companies. It has been noted that Google has an interest in Blockchain technology for several years. It was the second most active investor in Blockchain tech from the 2012 to 2017 period.
