Thanks to the partnership between Google and a distributed ledger technology (DLT) startup managed by former JPMorgan executive Blythe Masters, developing blockchain solutions for enterprise clients has just been made easier for Google Cloud users.
The partnership which was revealed on Monday will see Digital Asset launch a software development kit (SDK) to developers working on Google Cloud, allowing them to test and build blockchain application without having to code the whole platform themselves.
Leonard Law, Head of Financial Services Platform at Google Cloud stated in a statement that DLT has “great potential” for customers in various industries.
“DLT has great potential to benefit customers not just in the financial services industry, but across many industries, and we’re excited to bring these developer tools to Google Cloud.”
“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 the blockchain,” added Blythe Masters, CEO of Digital Asset and the former CFO of JPMorgan’s investment bank. “This will reduce the technical barriers to DLT application development by delivering our advanced distributed ledger platform and modeling language to Google Cloud.”
Eventually, Digital Asset anticipates that the partnership will attract more developers to its Digital Asset Modeling Language (DAML) platform-as-a-service (PaaS) PROGRAM, which will be accessible through Google Cloud’s Orbitera application marketplace.
With the products, the firm proud that developers have been able to have access to an “end-to-end toolkit to build and deploy sophisticated distributed applications.”
Google is the most recent cloud computing company to use tool for blockchain developers.
