Qtum launches full suite of blockchain developer tools on Google Cloud

The free-to-use tools launched on Google Cloud are available through the Qtum compute engine, which enables anyone to launch a full developer environment on the Qtum blockchain.
Previously, developers were required to source the necessary tools themselves to create a full Qtum node or decentralized applications (dApps). But now, they have access to the suite of tools necessary to build dApps, launch a full node, make a fork, or begin staking on the Qtum blockchain on Google Cloud.
The developer toolkit includes Qtum Core, a Solidity Compiler, Qmix IDE, Solar (smart contracts deployment tool), Qt-dev libraries, and all other necessary libraries and tools to develop dApps.
“Where launching a node was once an intensive and complex process, Qtum’s new developer suite introduces helpful shortcuts and tools to make it faster and easier. With a more accessible technology, we hope to open up and expand the Qtum community to include people with a broader range of experience — from experts to the everyday user,” said Miguel Palencia, Qtum CIO.
Qtum explained that when its source code is updated, Google Cloud will automatically update the code everywhere, meaning developers would not be required to manually re-download to remain on the latest version.
In January 2017, Qtum raised $1 million from leading blockchain entrepreneurs including ethereum founder Anthony Di Iorio, OKCoin CEO Star Xu, BitFund founder Xiaolai Li and Fenbushi partner Bo Shen.
The Qtum token is currently among the top 35 cryptocurrencies by market cap and is trading at $2.56 at the time of writing.
