Google Appends Six New Blockchains In BigQuery

The search engine giant Google Cloud shared the news that it has extended its BigQuery Public Datasets to six new cryptocurrencies, or rather six blockchains - Bitcoin Cash, Dash, Dogecoin, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, and Zcash.
The company has also included a set of queries and views that can map all blockchain datasets to a double-entry book data structure, to allow multi-chain meta-analyses and integration with conventional financial record processing systems.
Five of these datasets - Bitcoin Cash, Dash, Dogecoin, Litecoin, and Zcash along with the previously published Bitcoin dataset now follow a common schema that enables comparative analysis as their source code is derived from Bitcoin’s. Similarly, the Ethereum Classic dataset is released alongside the previously published Ethereum dataset, and Ethereum Classic is also using the same common schema.
The company said that these datasets are updated every 24 hours using Blockchain ETL, though this results in a higher latency for loading Bitcoin blocks into BigQuery, it also leads to ingesting additional BigQuery datasets with less effort. It also means that a low-latency loading solution can be implemented once and can be used to enable real-time streaming transactions for all blockchains.
"We hope these new public datasets encourage you to try out BigQuery and BigQuery ML for yourself. Or, if you run your own enterprise-focused blockchain, these datasets and sample queries can guide you as you form your own blockchain analytics." wrote the company
