Google Cloud announced its support for the popular Proof-of-stake blockchain network Solana (Sol).

With the help of PoH, the Solana network can process transactions at 65,000. In the past 10 months, Solana devs faced huge criticism because of the outage in the Solana network because of different kinds of bugs.
On 5 November, The official Twitter account of Google Cloud, a cloud service from tech giant Google, announced that it will now run a block as a validator.
“Google Cloud is running a block-producing @solana validator to participate in and validate the network,” Google Cloud stated.
Google subsidiary also said that support for the Solana network as a validator is a step by the company to participate in the network and also to bring the “Blockchain Node Engine” to the Solana chain in 2023.
The company also stated that the collaborative work of Google Cloud & Solana will help the Web3 ecosystem users to allow them to accept the historical data of the Solana network and also to deploy node easily.
“Google Cloud is indexing @solana data and bringing it to #BigQuery next year to make it easier for the Solana developer ecosystem to access historical data.”
Sol is the native token of the Solana blockchain network and the current price of Sol is $35.83, which is 10% high over the 7 days of trade price.
