Recently, Google Cloud, the technology giant made a major breakthrough in the crypto sphere, announcing the integration of 11 new blockchain networks into its data warehouse service, BigQuery. Among the recently added, Avalanche, Fantom, Polkadot and Tron stand out.
For those unfamiliar, BigQuery is Google’s flagship product when it comes to data storage. It is a fundamental tool for companies that want to host, query and analyze their data on a large scale. And now, with the addition of these new blockchain networks, the service expands even further, solidifying its place in the world of cryptocurrencies.
It is worth remembering that Google Cloud’s romance with blockchain technology is not new. In 2018, the company began its journey in this universe by launching a Bitcoin dataset. It didn’t take long for Ethereum to be added to the list as well. Since then, the pace has only accelerated, with other names like Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and Zcash joining the party. With the recent additions, BigQuery now boasts data from 19 different blockchain networks, an impressive feat in itself.

In addition to expanding its blockchain library, Google Cloud is also focused on improving the user experience. A new feature has been introduced to facilitate querying blockchain data. This feature, which uses a series of user-defined functions, is specifically designed to handle long decimal results, common in blockchains. According to Google itself, this advancement will allow customers to access longer decimal digits and minimize rounding errors.
And Google Cloud doesn’t stop there. Its recent partnerships with Voltage and Web3 startup Orderly Network show that the company is more committed than ever to exploring and integrating blockchain technology into its operations.
