Google seems to be the latest mainstream tech giant to be struck by the crypto bug and NFT in particular. Google Cloud today announced it has joined hands with popular NFT brand Dapper Labs that is known for its NFT marketplace NBA Top Shot.

The partnership would see Google help Dapper Labs with their Flow blockchain, where Google Cloud would help with the infrastructure and act as a network operator.

The NFT mania has risen to new highs in 2021 with several digital collectibles fetching millions of dollars for simple JPEGs. Mainstream brands and celebrities all have flocked to the NFT market launching different NFT collaborations and brand promotions. Dapper Labs has emerged as the fourth largest NFT platform by sales volume and accounted for more than a million transactions per week.

Janet Kennedy, vice president of Google Cloud North America said,

“It’s really about helping them with rapid and sustainable growth,” says Kennedy. “Blockchain technology is becoming more and more mainstream. So companies like Dapper need scalable, secure infrastructure to grow their business, and even more importantly, support their networks.”

While Google has maintained a fair distance from being directly involved with cryptocurrency, the latest partnership suggests it could venture into infrastructure building for Web 3.0. Not so long ago, Google didn’t even allow for crypto advertisements only to roll it back in 2021.

NFT Frenzy Declines

The NFT mania hit the world first during the first two quarters when the rest of the crypto market was on a bullish run, but soon after the frenzy seemed to die down a bit, before returning in August and hitting the peak.

While celebrities and brands are still keen on the digital collectible market, the growing scalability issue might have also played a part as minting NFTs has become expensive with the rise in popularity.
