Google has officially made Ethereum (ETH) dataset available in BigQuery– their warehouse for huge datasets and analytics. The ETH blockchain data is saved on the dataset and updated daily. The Google Cloud team says the tool was created to help businesses make decisions, improve the ETH architecture, and balance sheets adjustments.
The ETH blockchain contains APIs for various functions. Users can check their transaction status, fetch wallet-transaction associates, and check wallet balances. The API endpoints can’t be easily reached, so BigQuery’s features help build this kind of data and put it into a graph.
Google Cloud then synchronizes the Ethereum blockchain to computers running an infrastructure software that allows interaction with the network called Parity. It performs a daily extraction of data from the blockchain ledger and stores this data to BigQuery for analyzing.
An example of this tool in use is for CryptoKitties- a game based on the ETH blockchain that’s currently the most popular ERC-721 smart contract by transaction volume. It collects data on accounts that own at least 10 CKs (various colored blobs) and their fitness (size of the blob) on a web.
Google has expanded into blockchain-based based tools already. They created a tool for BTC in February that performed tasks like data extraction and transaction visualization for the coin. Google’s BigQuery has proven useful for adopters.
