Google Cloud is forming a team to build services for developers running blockchain applications. The search giant aims to enter Web3 as a back-end services provider.
Google Cloud Forms a Web3 Team
Google Cloud Vice President, General Manager, and Head of Platform Amit Zavery said they want to make Google Cloud Platform the initial choice for Web3 developers.
“While the world is still early in its embrace of Web3, it is a market that is already demonstrating tremendous potential, with many customers asking us to increase our support for Web3 and Crypto-related technologies,” Google Cloud VP wrote through an email.
Zavery emphasized the increase of demand in customers seeking support for both Web3 and crypto-related technologies. He added that it is a market with tremendous potential. For now, Google Cloud did not announce the specific products that will be launched by its Web3 division. However, the company appears to be most interested in “back-end services.”
There had been a recent survey among hundreds of developers from Stack Overflow. Of the 585 participants, 85% have not yet made any apps or software that uses the blockchain. However, as Google Cloud is set to streamline the process of Web3 app creation for developers, there will probably be a change in the situation.
Zavery said Google does not try to directly take part in the crypto wave. It will probably create a system that other companies can use. For instance, technology to make it easier for end-users to explore and access blockchain data. At the same time, the company aims to simplify the process of running blockchain nodes for validating and recording transactions.
We’ll have to wait for Google Cloud to formally announce its new Web3 team. However, the fact that the company currently works on making services to help developers build better Web3 apps is already great news.
