Google Cloud will become a block producer candidate on the EOS network, which is built on the EOSIO blockchain protocol published by Block.one. Block producers are a core component of the EOS network.

Google Cloud's highly provisioned, low-latency global fiber optic network provides stability, reliability, security, and extensive global infrastructure coverage for Block.one’s public blockchain efforts and development. Through this partnership, Google Cloud will work with Block.one to enable new ways for its open-source community of developers to engage and build applications utilizing both the power of the EOSIO protocol and Google's unparalleled developer experience in the Cloud.
