According to Amit Zavery, vice president of Google Cloud, Google Cloud users will be able to make payments in 10 cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Litecoin and Dogecoin, by leveraging the Coinbase Commerce service. About. Zavery said that more cryptocurrencies will be supported over time.

“We want to make building on Web3 faster and easier,” Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian said in a statement. We are proud that Coinbase has chosen Google Cloud as their strategic cloud partner, and we stand ready to contribute to Web3's thriving global ecosystem of customers and partners. I will.”

“We are excited that Google Cloud has chosen Coinbase to bring Web3 to new users and bring powerful solutions to developers,” said Coinbase co-founder and CEO Brian Armstrong. We couldn't have asked for a better partner to execute on our vision of building a trusted bridge to the ecosystem.'
