Bloq has launched support for managed Avalanche nodes. Users will now be able to set up a cluster of Avalanche nodes (or transaction validators) in a few minutes through the Bloq platform.
Avalanche is a blockchain-enabled platform for creating “an open, simple, and democratic Internet of finance.”
As mentioned in the announcement:
“Avalanche is the latest blockchain protocol to integrate with Bloq, enabling users to launch fully-managed, enterprise-ready Avalanche node clusters in just minutes. Users and developers can focus on what they’re building, leveraging Avalanche’s transaction speed and throughput, while Bloq ensures their infrastructure is highly performant.”
Bloq is an established blockchain infrastructure provider that was founded by Jeff Garzik, an experienced Bitcoin Core developer, and Matthew Roszak, an early investor in crypto-related initiatives.
Jeff Garzik, co-founder and CEO of Bloq, said that Avalanche’s mainnet launch is “well-timed, given the in-production stress tests that blockchain networks have experienced as developers, projects, and companies explore their promise at scale.”
Garzik added that Avalanche is a powerful new protocol that’s compatible with Ethereum, the world’s largest smart contract platform. He claims that Avalanche offers high transaction throughput and has “an architectural vision” for ensuring adequate levels of security and scalability.
“We are proud to make Avalanche available to users of the Bloq platform for managed blockchain infrastructure services.”
Kevin Sekniqi of Ava Labs noted:
“Bloq excels at delivering reliable infrastructure that underpins powerful decentralized applications (dApps). That expertise, combined with Avalanche’s ability to set new benchmarks for speed, throughput, and decentralization on blockchains, will help individual developers and enterprises build a new wave of products and services on Avalanche”
As reported recently, DeFi solution provider Avalanche integrated Magic to bring passwordless authentication to its blockchain based platform. Avalanche has also integrated with crypto hardware wallet Ledger so users can securely store AVAX tokens.
