In a move that is expected to help it attract more and better developers and thus increase its utility and adoption, Near Protocol has partnered with Google Cloud to provide infrastructure for its Web3 startup platform, which is called Pagoda.

This partnership will allow Google Cloud to provide “technical support” to Near Protocol grant recipients.

The Near Protocol

Near Protocol is a decentralized application platform (DApp) that focuses on usability between developers and users. It uses sharing technology to achieve scalability, and in addition has the ability to integrate smart contracts and works with the proof of stake mechanism.


Pagoda, released in February 2022, is a startup platform that provides Web3 developers building on Near with a set of tools to build, launch and maintain their Web3 projects or DApps on the blockchain.

Google enters the blockchain

In a statement, Google Cloud’s director of digital assets, Carlos Arena, said that Google’s infrastructure will offer Near developers a means to “build and scale” and further noted that the company will continue to support “new products and services on blockchain-based platforms.”

In September, Google Cloud signed a similar partnership with Binance’s smart contracts blockchain platform, BNB Chain, allowing startups building products and services on the BNB Chain blockchain to also be able to leverage Google Cloud’s scalable, secure and open-source infrastructure.

Google Cloud launched a new digital asset team in January to support the growth and evolution of the blockchain ecosystem. The digital assets team is focused on helping Google Cloud customers create, exchange value in-store and launch new products on blockchain-based platforms.
