There are a lot of people hopping on the Blockchain bandwagon. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though. After all, blockchain technology has a number of benefits. In fact, people are even claiming the decentralized technology could help solve the ongoing data crisis. Whether or not that’s true, people have continued to move into the blockchain sphere. And the latest to do so? Three former Google employees who have now created the xGoogler Blockchain Alliance.
xGoogler Blockchain Alliance – Former Google Employees Move into Blockchain
Yesterday, reports surfaced that three former Google employees created a blockchain community. This is significant news for two reasons, in particular. First and foremost, these are people who used to work at Google, one of the largest technology companies in the world. This means all three have extensive backgrounds working in technology. This should prove to help its blockchain community in the long-run.
Secondly, in the past, Google has voiced various opinions on the technology, never clearly indicating where it stands in the conversation. For instance, in March, Google disclosed that it will be placing a ban on all advertising on Google Adwords that is cryptocurrency-oriented. Then, to make matters confusing, the California-based tech giant stated a week later that it was in the midst of developing two Blockchain products.
Regardless of where Google itself stands on the matter, these three former Google employees are team blockchain. They’re okay with the masses knowing it, too. To top it off, this blockchain community will be open to all former Google employees with an interest in the blockchain industry. According to the founders, the community is meant to act as a way for ex-Google employees to participate in a collaborative blockchain-based space.
The Blockchain community – named the xGoogler Blockchain Alliance (GBA) – has been founded by Hitters Xu, Daniel Wang, and Andy Tian. All three are Chinese blockchain community leaders, which, personally, makes sense as China is heavily involved with the technology. At the start of 2018, an online advertising platform in China made waves after moving into the blockchain industry. ChinaNet Online Holdings stock increased a whopping 300% after first announcing its move.
The GBA was not created to take a stab at Google’s inability to support blockchain and the cryptocurrency sector, either. Instead, according to April 15th press release, Xu, Wang, and Tian created the blockchain community for one specific reason. Reportedly, these three former Google employees believe they can take their knowledge learned at Google, and apply it to help with the expansion of blockchain technology.
Are You With These Three Former Google Employees?
Are you a Google employee, or an ex-Google employee interested in blockchain technology? This might be your calling if so. The good news is that even though the xGoogler Blockchain Alliance is currently only working within the Bay Area, Shanghai, and Beijing area, the three former Google employees stated they are looking to expand wherever there is a demand to join.
At press time, both the Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) stock and the ChinaNet Online Holdings (NASDAQ:CNET) stock are trading up nearly 2%.
