Near Foundation has announced a new partnership between 

Google Cloud and Near Protocol, which will provide infrastructure for Near's Web3 startup platform, Pagoda.

According to an Oct. 4 announcement, this partnership would allow Google Cloud to give "technical assistance" to Near award recipients by providing infrastructure for Near's Remote Procedure Call node provider to Pagoda.

Near Protocol is a decentralized application (DApp) framework that focuses on the developer and user usability. It uses sharding technology to ensure scalability and, as a competitor to Ethereum, is a proof-of-stake blockchain with smart contracts.

Pagoda is a startup platform that was launched in February 2022 to enable Web3 developers to build on Near with a full-stack toolset to build, publish, and maintain their Web3 applications or DApps on the blockchain.

In a statement, Google Cloud director of digital assets Carlos Arena stated that his firm's infrastructure will allow Near developers to "grow and expand," and that the business will continue to promote new products and services on blockchain-based platforms.

In September, Google Cloud announced a similar partnership with Binance's smart contract blockchain platform BNB Chain, allowing entrepreneurs to build goods and services on the BNB Chain blockchain to also build on Google Cloud's scalable, secure, and open-source infrastructure.

In January, Google Cloud established a new digital assets team to assist the growth and expansion of the blockchain ecosystem. The digital asset team is dedicated to assisting Google Cloud clients in creating, trading, and launching new products on blockchain-based platforms.
