Decentralized blockchain platform Qtum has joined hands with Google Cloud as a software associate to enhance user-friendly indigenous product release. Under the partnership, a full set of free-to-use products will be offered for the creation of smart contracts and decentralized application (Dapps). It will also ramp up accessibility for non-technical customers in releasing and staking / forging tokens.
Qtum has introduced a huge bouquet of cost-free tools. Previously, programmers and stakeholders would have to create different tools and nodes. An automatically upgraded open-source, although, offers a free set of tools on Google Cloud. Qtum intends to close the gap between true-world applications and like-Bitcoin and Ethereum groups.
Qtum, similar to Ethereum (ETH) platform concentrating on Smart Contracts and Decentralized Apps (DApps), has also published a suite of coder tools on Google Cloud that executives anticipate becoming popular.
In the blog post, Qtum’s CIO, Miguel Palencia, wrote “Google Cloud is the perfect partner to help us make the blockchain ecosystem simpler and more intuitive. Where launching a node was once an intensive and complex process, Qtum’s new developer suite introduces helpful shortcuts and tools to make it faster and easier.”
The Qtum programmer toolkit contains Qtum Core, a Solidity Compiler, Solar (smart contract deployment tool), Qt-dev libraries, Qmix IDE, and any other appropriate dApp libraries and tools.
Palencia further added:
“With a more accessible technology, we hope to open up and expand the Qtum community to include people with a broader range of experience — from experts to the everyday user.”
Developer resources that are offered include DApp development, full node launch, forking and staking on Qtum.
The blog post elaborates on Qtum source code update as follows:
“When the Qtum source code is updated, Google Cloud will automatically update the code everywhere, saving developers the need to manually re-download in order to remain on the latest version.”
The firm’s native qtum token advanced about 7 percent after the announcement and is ranked by market cap just outside the top thirty cryptocurrencies. Back in January, another functionality introduced t to Qtum users was similar to that of Bitcoin (BTC) atomic swaps, enabling users to instantly exchange one cryptocurrency token for another without intermediate framework.
