Google Cloud has entered into a multi-year partnership agreement with Dapper Labs, a Canadian blockchain startup, to support its Flow blockchain, Forbes reports. The Mountain View-based IT giant will act as a network operator to help Flow scale. The blockchain network already has over 50 applications, including non-fungible token (NFT) collections like NBA Top Shot and CryptoKitties.

Janet Kennedy, Vice President of Google Cloud North America, says the decision to support Dapper Labs has been made after the company noticed "sustainable growth" of Dapper's products.
"Blockchain technology is becoming more and more mainstream. So companies like Dapper need scalable, secure infrastructure to grow their business, and even more importantly, support their networks," Kennedy explained.
Dapper Labs plans to expand its NFT lines with Google on Flow up to billions of users. For Google such a partnership is not the first one. In October 2020, Google Cloud became an EOS network block producer. Google Cloud Developer Advocate, Allen Day, said that the corporation was committed to ensuring that the information on public blockchains was "securely stored, reliably available, and can be accessed in meaningful ways."
