So this is interesting – with the Big G banning ads for ICOs, the plot continues to thicken with this ‘blockchain breakaway’. Bring on the chain-drain I reckon, the more expertise brought to bear on this emergent tech the greater products and solutions we will end up with, and that’s got to be a win-win:
Google and the blockchain haven’t exactly been the best of friends. While Google’s parent company, Alphabet, has emerged as one of the biggest corporate investors in blockchain startups, Google and YouTube have clamped down on crypto ads, and this is all most of us judge them by. However, with the blockchain revolution taking off, some of Google’s elite minds have left the Mountain View-based tech giant to found blockchain startups. And they have gone a step further in forming a blockchain community, the xGoogler Blockchain Alliance.
