As of late, public blockchain platform Solana’s newest initiative, Solana Mobile, has announced its newest partner: cryptocurrency hardware wallet maker Ledger. The new integration would enable the organizations to provide improved usability and security to Solana users.

On June 23, 2022, Solana announced the debut of the Saga smartphone, a premium Android phone for web3 . One of the leading Android development companies, OSOM, is in charge of the phone’s design and production. Per the specifications, the device boasts a 6.67-inch 120Hz OLED display and a steel frame body. Its 247g weight and 8.4mm thickness also makes it easy to carry.

As a result of this new collaboration, Solana will be supported by Ledger Connect, a secure browser plugin developed by Ledger, and to be integrated with Magic Eden in the first half of 2023. The move will also allow Solana developers to integrate their decentralized applications (DApps) with Ledger.

Ian Rogers, Chief Experience Officer at Ledger, commented on the development, stating:

Our shared commitment to security will ensure Solana users have access to the best security on the planet – whether they’re buying or staking SOL through Ledger Live, or securely and easily collecting using Ledger Connect and Magic Eden.

Google Steps In

Solana has also partnered with Google Cloud, a division of American multinational tech giant, Alphabet Inc. Per the announcement on Saturday, Google is now a validator for the Solana blockchain protocol.

Google will reportedly launch a Blockchain Node Engine for the Solana protocol by 2023. The company described the proposed node engine as a “fully-managed node hosting service” for the Solana blockchain.

Google stated it has big plans for the Solana blockchain and would actively participate in its growth and operations. The internet giant promised that by the end of the first quarter of 2023, it will have indexed all of Solana’s data. It also revealed that after indexing is complete, the data would be added to its BigQuery Data Warehouse, an initiative that will “make it easier for the Solana developer ecosystem to access historical data.”
