Google Partners Nansen for Real-Time Blockchain Data
In the past, Google’s relationship with blockchain and cryptocurrencies was difficult, but any bad feelings seem to have gone away. Before, the company was careful about the cryptocurrency market, and it didn’t even let people advertise cryptocurrencies on its website.
All of this seemed to go away, though, when Google started working on Web3 and coin projects. The latest information says that Alphabet, which owns Google, has made the Google for Startups Cloud Program bigger.
As of April 25, web3 companies Alchemy, Aptos, Base, Nansen, Near, Polygon, Solana, Celo, Flow, Hedera, and Thirdweb are part of the startup program. Nansen, a tool for analyzing cryptocurrencies, is the latest firm to partner Google.
Through this agreement, Nansen will help Google Cloud offer real-time info from the blockchain. Alex Svanevik, the CEO of Nansen, said, “Nansen is thrilled to join forces with Google to offer the next generation of web3 builders the highest quality blockchain data for their needs.”
Google Cloud has two tools for web3 businesses available right now. Pre-seed firms can get up to $2,000 in Google Cloud credits that can be used for two years. Polygon Ventures can put up to $3 million into companies in their “seed stage.” Seeded businesses can also get $200,000 over two years for Cloud and Firebase, plus $12,000 in Google Cloud Enhanced Support credits.
