Google had a complex relationship with blockchain and cryptocurrencies in the past, but any negative sentiment appears to have scattered. The company used to have a cautious stance on the cryptocurrency market and even did not permit cryptocurrency advertising on its platform.
But all that seemed to have faded away as Google started embracing Web3 and cryptocurrency projects. According to the latest updates, Google’s parent company, Alphabet, has broadened the Google for Startups Cloud Program.
