Amazon Amplifies Web3 Influence with Blockchain Tools

Amazon is delving deeper into the Web3 infrastructure, unveiling AMB Access and Query services designed to assist blockchain developers. The company added these new tools to Amazon Web Services (AWS), the world's largest cloud platform, intending to simplify the process of building Web3 applications based on blockchain technology.

As part of the Amazon Managed Blockchain (AMB), a service that expedites application creation via provision blockchain infrastructure, the "Access" and "Query" tools were announced during the two-day AWS Web3/Blockchain Summit in New York City.

Earlier this year, Amazon began its journey into the Web3 sphere with job listings for Web3 personnel, indicating the company's evolving focus. Rumors are also swirling around Amazon's potential foray into a non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace, although the company hasn't officially confirmed this.

AMB Access offers developers serverless and scalable access to multiple blockchains without the need for specialized infrastructure. It allows developers to use standard remote procedure calls to interact with digital assets and distributed applications. To start with, this service will support the Bitcoin network.

AMB Query gives developers the ability to access data across multiple blockchains, starting with Bitcoin and Ethereum, via application programming interfaces (API). This service follows a pay-as-you-go pricing model.

Amazon envisions these tools being used in various applications, including custodial and wallet crypto applications and Web3 consumer engagement campaigns featuring NFTs.

"Amazon Managed Blockchain Access and Query provide friction-free access to blockchain networks and their data so developers can easily create their Web3 applications," stated Saman Michael Far, vice president of financial services technology at AWS.
