Google’s New Chrome Plugin
In addition to the Google’s previous launch of Bitcoin support for its BigQuery database tool, the tech giant has launched its Ethereum version for data analytics.
This provides Google users with an avenue to interact directly with Ethereum activities. A distinguished service that gives detail activities and data on the Ethereum blockchain. It provides a graph of all Ethereum transfer and the transaction cost.
The information it provides is essential to Google users as well as developers, as it helps with better decision making and gives users a better view of the Ethereum blockchain. Through its data query, the need for Ethereum system upgrading and development is shown.
Google has tested how BigQuery can create interesting maps of Ethereum traffic with Ethereum dApp, CryptoKitties. The big query gives a clear overview of the token’s activities.
The Ethereum’s big query enables the ability to compare smart contracts, especially in their functionality. This gives freedom with its large suite of analytic tools.
The Ethereum data amassed by the big query is updated daily. And to find the data provided useful there is a need for a working knowledge of database programming because all queries are made with SQL.
