BNB Chain partners with Google Cloud to accelerate startup expansion Web3
The team behind BNB Chain and Google Cloud have initiated a strategic collaboration to enable early stage Web3 and blockchain startups to thrive.
BNB Chain, a combination of BNB Beacon Chain (formerly Binance Chain) and BNB Smart Chain (formerly Binance Smart Chain), currently has over 1,300 active decentralized applications (dApps), spread across various categories such as decentralized finance (DeFi), metaverse, blockchain games, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in its ecosystem.
Collaborating with Google Cloud expands BNB Chain’s commitment to providing talented Web3 developers with the foundational infrastructure needed to turn their projects and dApps into stable, reliable and valuable parts of the broader ecosystem.
Startups using BNB Chain’s blockchain infrastructure can now build on top of Google Cloud, a scalable, developer-friendly cloud infrastructure. In addition, these BNB Chain projects can use Google Cloud services for on-demand analysis of on-chain data and encryption of data while it is being processed in real-time.
Gwendolyn Regina, investment director at BNB Chain, said that “At BNB Chain, we have focused on identifying and supporting innovative Web3 builders, and now, by collaborating with Google Cloud, we can help these builders access the open, secure environment and cloud-neutral infrastructure needed to strengthen and scale their business. .”
James Tromans, Director of Web3, Google Cloud, said:
“We look forward to collaborating with BNB Chain to provide Web3 builders with the cleanest cloud infrastructure to develop and scale their applications. This builds on our existing work to meet our customers’ needs in developing, transacting, storing value and deploying new products on blockchain-based platforms.”
As part of this collaboration, BNB Chain will facilitate accelerated access to the Google for Startups Cloud Program for qualified Web3 builders in its ecosystem, including those under the Most Valuable Builder (MVB) accelerator program. The Google for Startups Cloud program provides Google Cloud credits every year for up to two years and helps qualified early-stage startups establish and grow their businesses. It will also allow Web3 builders who join the program to:
- Connect with Google Cloud Startup Success team members and Google technical experts in data management, data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), zero trust security, and more.
- Participate in workshops for Web3 developers;
- Benefit from access to Google Cloud Skills Boost training and certification; and
- Join the global Google Cloud customer community group.
Organized by BNB Chain and Binance Labs, the MVB accelerator program identifies developers and startups that need the right foundation to continue building and scaling cutting-edge Web3 products and user dApps. It provides these projects with funding, guidance and community support.
