The big data Analytics Platform has Google Drives into the Ethereum Platform, as the company announced on the blog that Google BigQuery, Google Cloud’s Petabyte-scale data warehousing solution, has made the Ethereum dataset available to enable the exploration of smart contract analytics.
Google is seeking the new contributor and blockchains. BigQuery has made it possible to explore all of Ethereum’s historical data. Ethereum’s ETL project on GitHub includes all source code that can be extracted from the blockchain and entered into BigQuery.
More visualization is possible to use directed graph data structure to glean insights about the data since it includes a set of transfers among wallet addresses.
In one example, the first 40,000 transactions contained at least two trading partners. The blog gives an example of a graphic made with Gephi, a visualization software, showing nodes color labeled by groups of addresses that transfer often with each other. The Modularity algorithm was used to calculate this graphic.
“Much of the smart contract source code is available for free, allowing Google users to discover what functions contracts perform based on the name, even functions that don’t have the source since the common function names carry a common signature.
Google Cloud has given momentum to smart contract analytics through BigQuery.”
