Google Cloud bolstered by new blockchain deal

Google’s latest deal is adding blockchain tools to its Google Cloud service…

A new deal inked by Google is set to give companies and coders tools to put together new blockchain applications, without having to fully build them from the ground up.

The deal has been done with a company called Digital Asset, and it’s the latter film that’ll be providing the necessary tools and support. Blockchain applications will thus be brought to Google’s Cloud service, courtesy of the New York-based startup.

“We’re partnering with Google Cloud to provide developers with a full stack solution so they can unleash the potential for web-paced innovation in blockchain”, said Digital Asset CEO Blythe Masters, CEO of Digital Asset, in the official announcement of the new deal.

Digital Artists’ software development kit includes a programming language by the name of DAML (Digital Asset Modelling Language), which is the foundation of its blockchain application-building tools.

It’s all part of a series of deals Google is working on to add blockchain to its Cloud services. Expect more announcements in due course.
