After revealing its Blockchain Node Engine in October, Google has begun to move toward other blockchains. According to a tweet from Google Cloud’s official Twitter account, the firm is already running a Solana validator. “Google Cloud is running a block-producing [Solana] validator to participate in and validate the network,” the company tweeted. The following was added by the company:

Google Cloud has been working with [Solana]Solana is bringing Blockchain Node Engine to its Solana Chain next year so that anyone can launch a Solana Node in the Cloud.

In addition to bringing Blockchain Node Engine support to Solana, Google Cloud will be indexing the Solana blockchain and bringing the data to “Big Query” next year. The goal is to “make it easier for the Solana developer ecosystem to access historical data.” Solana’s native token solana (SOL) jumped in value on the announcement and SOL is up 7.8% higher against the U.S. dollar this week.

However, not everyone was thrilled about Google’s mission to host Solana nodes in the cloud. “This … Is not a good thing. Centralization is increasing. This is like the opposite point of crypto,” one person criticizedIn the Google Cloud announcement thread via Twitter. Another individual agreed with the person’s critique and replied: “Crypto went full redacted in 2017. People now celebrate centralized and custodial services because it makes number go up.”
