Google’s BigQuery has expanded its data offerings by adding 11 new public data sets for blockchain networks. This move allows users to access a wide range of data from these networks. The newly added networks include Avalanche, Arbitrum, Cronos, Ethereum’s Görli testnet, Fantom, Near, Optimism, Polkadot, Polygon’s mainnet, Polygon’s Mumbai testnet, and Tron.
BigQuery is Google’s data warehouse service, which enables enterprise firms to store and query their data. It already provides access to various public data sets such as Google Trends, American Community Service demographic information, and Google Analytics. In 2018, Google introduced a Bitcoin data set, followed by the addition of Ethereum later that year. The company continued to expand its blockchain coverage in 2019 by including Bitcoin Cash, Dash, Dogecoin, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, and Zcash. With the recent announcement, BigQuery now supports a total of 19 blockchain networks.
In addition to the new blockchains, Google has also introduced a feature to simplify blockchain queries. Through user-defined functions, the platform now offers methods to handle long-form decimal results commonly found on blockchains. This enhancement aims to provide customers with access to more precise decimal digits for their blockchain data and reduce rounding errors in computations.
Google Cloud has been actively exploring blockchain technology in 2023. It partnered with Voltage, a Lightning Network infrastructure provider, on July 7. Additionally, on September 14, it collaborated with Web3 startup Orderly Network to support off-chain components for decentralized finance.
