Zavery reportedly wrote in a staff letter that the Google Cloud Platform wants to become the top choice for blockchain developers. He wrote:
"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."
In an interview with CNBC, Zavery added that the company is not trying to be part of "cryptocurrency wave directly." Instead, the company wants to provide technologies for companies to "use and take advantage of the distributed nature of Web3 in their current businesses and enterprises."
Although no details were revealed, Zavery said Google could deploy a hub that other companies could use to get blockchain data for building and running nodes or decentralized applications (dApps).
