LayerZero Labs Partners with Google Cloud to Enhance Cross-Chain Messaging Security
LayerZero Labs announced a collaboration with Google Cloud to boost the security of its cross-chain messaging.
Starting today, the Google Cloud oracle will be rolled out as a purpose-built verifier on LayerZero.
LayerZero Labs, the team behind cross-chain messaging protocol LayerZero, today announced a new partnership with Google Cloud. The company will leverage Google Cloud Oracle to boost the security of its cross-chain messaging.
Starting today, the Google Cloud oracle will be integrated into LayerZero’s protocol as purpose-built verifier on LayerZero.
The Google Cloud Oracle will act as a trusted authority within the LayerZero network, responsible for validating the accuracy of data and interactions. It will operate as an independent network, applying its validation logic to either approve or reject cross-chain messages.
Google Cloud will automatically verify the legitimacy of every message within LayerZero. Therefore, developers building decentralized applications (dApps) on top of LayerZero will now be able to use the Google Cloud oracle to verify transactions.
LayerZero said it processes roughly 10 million messages per month. The Google Cloud Oracle will extend its verification capabilities across 15 different chains, including prominent ones such as Ethereum, Arbitrum, Optimism, Polygon, BNB, and Avalanche.
“Google Cloud is the perfect partner to act as the default verifier securing messaging, as they have been a leader in security for multiple decades and now bring that same quality to the core of the LayerZero protocol,” Bryan Pellegrino, CEO of LayerZero Labs, said in a statement.
Using Google Cloud’s fully managed node hosting product, Blockchain Node Engine (BNE) as a core provider for its RPC connections, LayerZero claims that it has scaled its systems to handle more than 40 billion monthly Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) calls.
“Core to Google Cloud’s Web3 strategy is to collaborate with protocols that bring unique capabilities to the community and help make it easier for developers to build and scale applications on that network,” James Tromans, Head of Web3, Google Cloud.
“Teaming up with LayerZero as an oracle across 15 chains will not only enhance the security of LayerZero’s cross-chain messaging capabilities but further accelerate its commitment to Web3 interoperability and enterprise adoption.”
