Mysten Labs teams up with Google Cloud on AI-powered code development

Mysten Labs, the developer of the Sui layer-1 network, has announced a partnership agreement with Google Cloud to boost developers’ activity on the blockchain.

The Palo Alto-headquartered Mysten Labs has teamed up with Google Cloud in an effort to expand a set of developer tools on the Sui blockchain. Under the partnership agreement, Google Cloud will integrate Sui’s blockchain data into BigQuery, a serverless multi-cloud data warehouse.

Using Google Cloud’s generative artificial intelligence platform dubbed Vertex AI, Mysten Labs says it has trained it on the Move programming language to “help web3 developers debug and augment code generation.” Additionally, with the help of Vertex AI, Mysten Labs has developed a new AI-based code auditing tool capable of identifying security vulnerabilities in Rust, Move, Typescript, and Solidity, a programming language developed by the Ethereum team for deploying smart contracts.

Commenting on the collaboration, Mysten Labs CEO Evan Cheng expressed enthusiasm, saying it will propel the development of user-centric web3 experiences. He also emphasized that the cloud infrastructure provided by Google will empower developers to create new decentralized applications on the Sui blockchain.

Furthermore, Mysten Labs also disclosed that Google Cloud is now committed to supporting the blockchain’s developer community through its Web3 Startup Program, offering such resources as Google Cloud credits, access to Discord channels with blockchain experts, foundation grants, and participation in global events.

The collaboration comes a few weeks after Mysten Labs secured $300 million in a Series B funding round, valuing the company at over $2 billion. Launched in 2021, the blockchain project has garnered support from a pool of investors including a16z crypto, Coinbase Ventures, Binance Labs, Jump Crypto, and Circle Ventures, among others.
