Qtum now offers its cloud tools from Google Cloud


Qtum Chain Foundation, which is an open source platform built on blockchain technology, today announced a partnership with Google LLC that will bring the company's development tools to Google Cloud.

Through association, free to use tools will allow developers and non-technical users to design and deploy nodes on the Qtum blockchain, as well as producing applications that use its platform.

About Qtum

Blockchain technology creates a distributed ledger that is protected with advanced cryptography and multi-party consensus so that stored transactional data cannot be easily manipulated.

The same technology can be used to provide reliable historical data, enable and disable access permissions and provide third-party trust audits who can maintain the confidentiality of data attached to the chain.

In the case of Qtum tools, developers they can use other blockchain capabilities- Smart contracts or rule-based transactions that are based on a set of conditions to complete.

When a smart contract is placed on a blockchain, a cryptographic key is put on deposit until such time as the two or more parties to the contract agree that the conditions of the contract have been completed.

This can be done with a custodial supervisor completing the agreement or it can be fully automated with a computer program that checks the conditions and releases custody, or returns it to its originator.

"Where launching a node was an intensive and complex process, the new Qtum developer suite features useful shortcuts and tools to make it faster and easier," said Qtum Chief Information Officer Miguel Palencia.

"With more accessible technology, we hope to open and expand the Qtum community to include people with a broader range of experience, from experts to everyday users."

Blockchains and low-level smart contracts require a great deal of highly technical training and research.

As a result, Qtum designed its tools to automate as much of the lowest-level programming as possible for business usersThose with little technical experience can turn simple business logic into smart contracts, use the Qtum platform to convert them to code, and deploy and run them without the need for technical training.

The tools of Qtum will be available on Google Cloud

The set of tools released on Google Cloud it is available through the Qtum compute engine.

One person can launch a complete development environment in Qtum with access to everything a developer needs to start the nodes, develop distributed applications, known as Dapps, test and deploy.

Previously, developers needed to download, install and deploy the Qtum codebase, as well as the necessary tools.

Now, all of this exists in the Google cloud. Due to the cloud nature of the tools and environment, it will always be up-to-date with the latest version updates and security fixes from Qtum automatically, so developers do not need to download and reinstall code.

"Google Cloud is the perfect partner to help us make the blockchain ecosystem simpler and more intuitive," said Palencia.

The Qtum Developer Toolkit on Google Cloud contains all the necessary source to launch dApps, an editor, a code compiler for blockchain, a smart contract implementation tool called Solar, and many other libraries required to complete blockchain projects.

Qtum-Core is now generally available for anyone to start on Google Cloud with access to development tools and code base.

In the publication of Qtum says that the tools offered by them are free to use And they are aimed at developers and users, in a simple way for the development of nodes in the Qtum blockchain in a profitable way.
