Search engine giant Google has announced that it has joined forces with Dapper Labs, a Canadian startup known as the developer of the $680 million NBA Top Shot marketplace, to support and scale the Flow blockchain.
Dapper users process 500,000 to one million transactions per week. It is the fourth largest platform by sales volume, according to industry data site Dapp Radar.
By establishing a long-term partnership with Dapper Labs, Google Cloud will act as a network operator and deliver its infrastructure to help Flow scale. The Flow network already supports dozens of apps, including popular NFT collections like NBA Top Shot and CryptoKitties. More than 2,000 developers who have developed Flow will be able to connect to Flow access nodes in less time via Google’s package.
According to Janet Kennedy, vice president of Google Cloud North America, developers will be able to choose which regions power their platforms based on their energy consumption.
Kennedy spoke on the subject as follows;
Roham Gharegozlou, CEO of Dapper Labs, said that Google has streamlined the process to make it easier for Flow developers to integrate with their software;
Dapper is among the most successful in taking advantage of this opportunity.
With Google’s help, Dapper Labs hopes to scale NBA Top Shot and other NFT platforms running on Flow to billions of users, following the path of other blockchain projects growing behind centralized cloud hosts.
