Binance and Google are collaborating.
According to a press release issued on September 14, BNB Chain and Google Cloud have partnered to promote the development of Web3 and blockchain startups.
Specifically, the partnership will see Binance’s BNB chain offer a portion of its backed blockchain projects with compensatory access to Google for Startups Cloud Program.
This program provides two years of credits for Google’s cloud computing service. In addition to covering access fees, the partnership will also see Google Cloud provide mentorship and enhanced technical support for projects on the BNB chain.
Moreover, with Google Cloud, projects can access data analysis and encryption services on demand.
Today’s announcement notes that projects on BNB Chain “can now build on the open, scalable, developer-friendly, secure, and sustainable cloud infrastructure from Google Cloud.” Google Cloud aims to make its data centers completely carbon-neutral by 2030, hence the promise of sustainability.
Google has previously partnered with other blockchain projects, including hydraOntology theta networkAnd the EOSAnd the ribbedAnd the Dabur LabsAnd the back. In many cases, Google Cloud acted as a block producer, while the blockchain project in question relied on Google Cloud as the cloud service provider.
It seems that Google will not directly serve the BNB chain as it has been serving those other projects. However, today’s partnership could be significant if it succeeds in bringing a wide range of other blockchain projects to Google Cloud.
BNB Chain is a blockchain that is a combination of two previous chains from Binance Merged in February. It supports many popular projects, including the decentralized exchange PancakeSwap and the Ankr liquid storage platform.
It currently supports about 1,300 blockchain applications, including DeFi projects, games, the metaverse, and NFT.
