Google dives deeper into blockchain adding Bitcoin, EVM chains to 'rich results' indexing

    2024.03.30 | exchangesranking | 43onlookers
    Reports indicate that Google has expanded its search engine capabilities to include blockchain data from various networks, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum virtual machine networks like Fantom.

    This integration empowers users to access transaction details by searching for specific blockchain addresses directly within Google’s search engine ‘rich’ results.

    Last year, Google introduced this feature for Ethereum, enabling users to query specific public addresses and instantly view wallet balances within search results.

    The company enhanced this feature by incorporating Ethereum Name Service functionality last week. CryptoSlate reported that Google search results displayed comprehensive address details, including Ethereum balances and the timestamp of the latest transaction.

    Supported Bitcoin and EVM addresses

    Trending screenshots on social media showed that the tech giant only supported three address formats, including P2PKH, P2SH, and Bech32, with this feature.

    However, this service appears not universally available as some users on X reported that the results would not appear in search results for them.

    Additionally, Nick SR, the head of growth for the Fantom Foundation, reported that Google was quietly indexing the network’s blockchain data in its search engine.

    He added that the support was enabled for four other EVM-compatible chains, including Arbitrum, Avalanche, Optimism, and Polygon.

    This development comes when Fantom aims to rejuvenate its standing with its innovative Sonic technology.

    Michael Kong, Fantom Foundation CEO, said:

    “​​Sonic will be used to create a new best-in-class shared sequencer for L1 and L2 chains, capable of processing over 180 million daily transactions with real, sub-second confirmation times, and serve as the foundation to relaunch Fantom as an entirely new community-centric brand.”

    Against this backdrop, Fantom’s FTM token has surged by over 110% in the past month, outpacing other major layer1 blockchains, including the high-flying Solana network.
