Flare, a Layer 1 blockchain platform that offers decentralized access to high-integrity data from other chains and the internet, has made its blockchain APIs available on the Google Cloud Marketplace. This integration means that developers can now easily make blockchain transactions and obtain real-time data from Flare’s nodes as well as Connected Chain nodes.
Accessible Blockchain APIs on Google Cloud Marketplace
Developers can now access blockchain APIs through Google Cloud Marketplace, which includes a variety of platforms such as the following:
- Bitcoin (BTC)
- Ethereum (ETH)
- Dogecoin (DOGE)
- Litecoin (LTC)
- BNB Smart Chain (BSC)
- Algorand (ALGO)
- Songbird (SGB)
- Flare (FLR)
Additionally, as Flare adds more blockchain APIs to their API Portal, they will automatically become accessible to Google Cloud users who are building applications on the platform.
Blockchain APIs for Seamless Programming
Blockchain APIs are essential tools that allow developers to build programs that transact on the blockchain and access on-chain data about its current state. By using APIs, developers can avoid maintaining separate nodes for each blockchain they want to interface with, which becomes invaluable when developing cross-chain applications that require access to multiple databases.
Flare’s Available APIs
Developers can easily access Flare’s available APIs via its API Portal with just one sign-in, using their Google Cloud account. Additionally, customers can commit to the cost of Flare’s APIs purchased through the Google Cloud Marketplace. Flare’s EVM-based Layer 1 works towards increasing the value of the blockchain by providing developers with decentralized access to high-quality data from other chains and Web2 sources.
Benefits of Flare’s Blockchain APIs
According to Josh Edwards, VP of Engineering at Flare, the increased availability of leading blockchain APIs on platforms like Google Cloud Marketplace can help reduce barriers to participation in the Web3 ecosystem. This development can significantly ease the burden of expensive hardware costs and ongoing maintenance that often comes with experimenting with blockchain technology and its many use cases.
Furthermore, the API Portal serves as a safety net for major exchanges and wallets in case of issues with their own systems. Edwards believes that this development will enable larger organizations and partners to safely and securely experiment with a set of approved Web3 APIs. As a result, developers will have more flexibility to create applications without worrying about the infrastructure, enabling them to focus more on the creation and shipping of high-quality products.
Future of Flare’s Blockchain APIs
Google Cloud Marketplace’s inclusion of every blockchain linked by Flare’s data and interoperability architecture is expected to enable developers to access the top 100 blockchains. This will let them expand their potential use cases and increase the blockchain’s value.
Flare’s blockchain APIs on Google Cloud Marketplace will make it easier for developers to access blockchain technology and experiment with its many use cases. It also provides a safety net for major exchanges and wallets in case of system problems. With Flare’s EVM-based Layer 1 and the integration of its APIs on Google Cloud Marketplace, developers can focus on creating and shipping great products without worrying about infrastructure headaches.
