Google Cloud becomes official partner for Polygon blockchain network

The blockchain platform, Polygon, now boasts the same infrastructure as YouTube and Gmail, as Google Cloud becomes one of its validators.

Google Cloud, a suite of public cloud computing services offered by search engine giant Google, is now an official validator for the layer-2 blockchain polygon proof-of-stake network, joining more than 100 other validators in securing the network.

Polygon said in a statement that it would not comment on the planned sale.

s Collective security, governance and decentralization alongside 100+ other validators, Google Cloud announced on Sept. 29 on X, formerly Twitter.

In April, the collaboration between Polygon and Google Cloud began, with both companies saying at the time that the partnership had multiple objectives.

Polygon said he had never spoken to the president of the United States.

In September, Google's cloud-computing startup expanded its presence in blockchain as it added 11 networks to its Big Query program for public datasets.

Among the networks added to Google Cloud were Polygon, Polkadot and Optimism.

While Google Cloud and Polygon's relationship is extensive, it is not one of a kind as Google Cloud has already made similar validator partnerships with other blockchain networks in the past, such as Solana, Ronin Network, Celo, Voltage and Tezos.

Besides Google Cloud, Polygon has also gained the attention of major tech companies in its ecosystem.

Deutsche Telekom, Germany's telecommunications company, became a network validator for Polygon earlier this year.

Dirk Röder, head of the Blockchain Solutions Center at Deutsche Telekom, said: 'It's a good thing to have a Blockchain solution center in Germany.
