From @Google: "Working with Hedera #Hashgraph to support the next generation of distributed ledger technology": https://t.co/ECwpF5A2LE — Hedera Hashgraph (@hashgraph) February 11, 2020
Hedera is set to use Google Cloud to host its public testnets and Hedera Consensus Service ecosystem. This will allow Hedera developers to benefit from Google’s geographical coverage and infrastructure.
Hedera is a distributed ledger technology project rooted in the enterprise world. It is governed by the Hedera Governing Council, a body composed of many well-known companies such as:
Deutsche Telekom and others.
The council’s function is to lead the network’s decision-making and ensure its continuous reliability. Hedera has used Google Cloud since the inception of its network, choosing to run its ledger through Google Cloud Platform’s premium product offerings.
Now, with Google’s endorsement of Hedera’s using its publicly available software, Google also announced that it has become a member of the Hedera council.
