Google Cloud has expanded its BigQuery service by integrating 11 new blockchain networks. It broadens the capabilities of BigQuery to include networks like Avalanche, Arbitrum, Cronos, Ethereum’s Görli testnet, Fantom, Near, Optimism, Polkadot, Polygon’s mainnet, Polygon’s Mumbai testnet and Tron.
BigQuery, functioning as a digital safe haven for data, emerges as a valuable resource catering to enterprise needs for secure data storage and comprehensive querying capabilities. It is simultaneously set to grant users access to an array of public datasets for exploration. These datasets encompass a wide spectrum of information including data from Google Trends, demographic statistics from the American Community Service and valuable insights from Google Analytics as well.
In addition to incorporating these new blockchains, the search engine giant has introduced an innovative feature designed to streamline the process of querying blockchain data. This enhancement introduces user-defined functions, which are specialized methods crafted to efficiently handle lengthy decimal results.
In an official statement, Google highlighted the purpose of these recently introduced functions, emphasizing their role in extending customers’ access to decimal digits within their blockchain data. This move is a substantial stride forward in the quest to enhance the accessibility and reliability of blockchain data for BigQuery service users.
As Google advances its data capabilities and works to connect traditional data sources with blockchain technology, this integration is positioned to create novel avenues for data analysis and exploration across a diverse range of blockchain networks.
