Daniel Wang, Hitters Xu and Andy Tian, all of them former Google employees created a community focused on supporting Googlers and ex-Googlers interested in blockchain development to carry out their projects and ideas.
The three ex-Googlers, currently relevant figures in the blockchain community (Hitters Xu founder of blockchain platform Nebulas, Daniel Wang, founder of Loopring, and Andy Tian, CEO and founder of Gifto) created the xGoogler Blockchain Alliance or GBA (http://xgba.io http://xgba.io http://xgba.io http://xgba.iohttp://xgba.io http://xgba.io) with the intention of supply the growing demand of blockchain developers.
“GBA community aims to help each other advance our ambitions in blockchain spaces”
GBA started operations in Beijing and Shanghai, but the founders expressed they are seeking to expand “anywhere there are Googlers and ex-Googlers interested in blockchain.”
In this year, Google has been ambivalent in their perception of blockchain and cryptocurrency, announcing the banning of all crypto-related advertising on Google AdWords, and a week later reporting to media it was working on blockchain products.
“Google has always been in the forefront of new technologies worldwide, from Android to AI. As Googlers, we can bring our unique experiences to expand blockchain’s influence, to everyone, everywhere.”- Andy Tian
