Sky Mavis has signed a multi-year collaboration with Searce and Google Cloud to strengthen the security of the blockchain network Ronin and advance its vision of building a gaming universe with “cohesive, immersive, and rewarding experiences.”

Headquartered in Singapore, Sky Mavis is a technology-focused games studio and creator of the category-defining non-fungible token (NFT) title, Axie Infinity.

The agreement, supported by implementation partner Searce, sees Google Cloud as the independent enterprise validator for the Ronin network, contributing to its collective security and governance while also taking on the role of monitoring validator uptime. The cloud provider joins a validator node pool that includes Animoca Brands, DappRadar and Nansen.

“Sky Mavis is a powerful example of how the cloud can enable blockchain technologies to innovate and create value for individuals,” said Ruma Balasubramanian, managing director for Southeast Asia at Google Cloud.

“With Searce as our implementation partner, we look forward to working with Sky Mavis to accelerate its product roadmap and grow the Ronin network with secure infrastructure at its core. We’re also excited about the opportunities that this latest collaboration could bring – whether it’s providing enjoyable experiences for users or new business models in game distribution.”

Ronin was built using the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) launched by Sky Mavis in early 2021 to speed up transactions and reduce gas fees for its user ecosystem, allowing millions of in-game microtransactions to run seamlessly.

The product operates on a Proof of Authority (PoA) consensus model, where validators are chosen based on their credibility and are responsible for “verifying, reconciling, and maintaining” a record of transactions on the blockchain.
