Recently, Ethereum Classic was added by Google’s BigQuery platform to make it easier for developers and other technology experts to search for specific technical data on this blockchain network.

This step by the ETC community is one of many they have undertaken recently in order to increase the role of this altcoin in the crypto market. Coindesk experts believe that presently ETC is taking up less than just 1 percent of activity than that of other platforms, such as Bitcoin.

Practical use for blockchain firms

The CEO of a DLT startup that deals with blockchain verification and voting, OriginalMy, believes that BigQuery adding ETC enables blockchain firms/experts to quickly find the particular vote or authenticated publication date related to articles published in the media.

Companies like OriginalMy have wealthy corporate customers that may need to make blockchain queries quickly.

The head of the ETC Cooperative, Yaz Khoury, is using BigQuery to search for details of how ETC deposits are spread around owners outside exchanges.

ETC-based firms will benefit

Khoury believes that now that ETC data has been added to all the products of Google’s BigQuery, not only technological experts will start looking into this data, get interested in Ethereum Classic and try to build their products on ETC network.

Besides, this new factor of ETC being added by Google will enable startups working with the ETC platform to accelerate their growth – they are going to have a direct communication line with the ETC development team.
