The giant digital company Google continues to be greatly attracted to blockchain technology. After delving into its web3 intentions at the beginning of the summer, Google is furthering its web3 strategy by announcing the addition of 11 blockchains to its data analytics service.
Google Adds 11 Blockchains to Its BigQuery Program
Google’s Cloud division continues to expand in the blockchain and cryptocurrency ecosystem. Far from being just a marketing ploy, Google seems to be genuinely involved in promoting and developing the sector.
Indeed, since 2018, Google, through its program ‘BigQuery,’ has been improving accessibility to data on the blockchain. Thus, users can obtain precise information about various blockchains without the need to search in different places.
BigQuery must naturally open up to numerous blockchains in order to satisfy Google’s clients. These clients are seeking answers to various complex inquiries. Therefore, the inclusion of these 11 blockchains in BigQuery seems like a logical step. The blockchains include Avalanche, Arbitrum, Cronos, Ethereum’s Goerli testnet, Fantom, Near, Optimism, Polkadot, Polygon and its Mumbai testnet, and Tron.
Despite the bear market, Google does not seem ready to abandon the blockchain sector. The company clearly sees significant potential, as evidenced by James Troman, Global Head of Web3 at Google Cloud.
He explains that ‘over the past 18 months, we have invested in this sector, we have continued to hire, we have continued to develop not only our business development and go-to-market teams but also our products and engineering capabilities.’
According to him, this commitment proves that Google is not just opportunistic but is present even in the most challenging times for the cryptocurrency market.
While many people are moving away from the industry due to the endless market decline, Google seems determined to stay in the vicinity until the market turns around.
