Google Cloud Partners With Binance
Binance and Google are collaborating.
According to a press release issued on September 14, BNB Chain and Google Cloud have formed a partnership to promote the development of Web3 and blockchain startups.
Specifically, the partnership will see Binance’s BNB Chain provide a portion of its supported blockchain projects with compensated access to the Google for Startups Cloud Program.
This program provides two years’ worth 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 to projects on BNB Chain.
Furthermore, using Google Cloud, projects can access on-demand data analysis and encryption services.
Today’s announcement notes that projects on BNB Chain “can now build on Google Cloud’s open, scalable, developer-friendly, secure, and sustainable cloud infrastructure.” Google Cloud aims to have its data centers rely entirely on carbon-free energy by 2030, hence the sustainability promise.
Google has previously partnered with other blockchain projects, including Hedera, Ontology, Theta Network, EOS, Polygon, Dapper Labs, and Bakkt. In many cases, Google Cloud served as a block producer, while the blockchain project in question relied on Google Cloud as its cloud service provider.
It seems that Google will not serve BNB Chain as directly as it served those other projects. However, today’s partnership could be significant if it succeeds in bringing a wide variety of other blockchain projects to Google Cloud.
BNB Chain is a blockchain that is a combination of two earlier Binance chains that were merged in February. It supports various popular projects, including the decentralized exchange PancakeSwap and the liquid staking platform Ankr.
It currently supports about 1,300 blockchain applications, including DeFi, gaming, metaverse, and NFT projects.
