Google Cloud’s BigQuery Unveils 11 New Blockchain Datasets


Google Cloud has enhanced its blockchain data offering by expanding its BigQuery program to include 11 new chains. Polygon, Tron, Polkadot, Avalanche, Arbitrum, and Ethereum (Görli) are among the new networks added to the program, which already includes Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Dogecoin.

BigQuery allows for scalable data processing, allowing developers to retrieve on-chain data off-chain without having to directly query the blockchain. As stated by James Tromans, Google Cloud’s head of Web3, and Alberto Martin, director of Web3 product management: “We’re doing this because blockchain foundations, Web3 analytics firms, partners, developers, and customers tell us they want a more comprehensive view across the crypto landscape, and to be able to query more chains.”

In addition to the 11 new networks, Google is looking to improve the Bitcoin BigQuery dataset by adding Ordinals/Satoshis (sats). Ordinals, which have become increasingly popular in 2021, have led to congestion on the Bitcoin network.

Google Cloud has also recently struck a strategic alliance with Zilliqa and LayerZero. The cloud computing giant is now a staked seed node operator for Zilliqa and a default messaging verifier for LayerZero.
