A division of French energy company EDF Group has previously become a baker on the Tezos network, while French gaming giant Ubisoft joined the ecosystem in April 2021.
Google Cloud announced in November last year the launch of a node on the Solana network and the addition of blockchain support to the Blockchain Node Engine service for Web3 developers.
