BNB Chain, the smart contract platform by the world’s largest crypto exchange Binance, has announced a partnership with Google Cloud to support the growth of early-stage Web3 and blockchain startups.
BNB Chain Partners with Google Cloud
In a press release dated Thursday, September 14, Google Cloud and Binance’s BNB Chain announced a strategic collaboration to support early-stage Web3 and blockchain startups.
As per the press release, the partnership will see eligible Web3 projects running on the BNB Chain receive accelerated access to Google Cloud’s scalable, secure, and open-source infrastructure.
Fostering Innovation of Web3
Web 3, often referred to as the future of the internet, is one of the fastest-growing sectors. Currently, the BNB Chain hosts over 1,300 decentralized Web3 apps across the metaverse, DeFi, blockchain gaming, and NFTs.
The collaboration will connect developers in these different categories to technical subject matter experts at Google who specialize in topics such as AI, machine learning, and data analytics.
BNB Chain developers will also be able to participate in Web3 developer workshops and receive access to Google Cloud Skills Boost training and certification.
Google cloud will also give them access to on-demand data analysis and encryption services. It will also give developers Google Cloud credits for up to two years.
On the Flipside
- Unlike its previous partnerships with Hedera, Ontology, Theta Network, EOS, Polygon, Dapper Labs, and Bakkt, Google Cloud will not serve as a block producer for BNB.
