Google Cloud’s BigQuery service has added 11 blockchain networks to its data warehouse, according to a Sept. 21 blog post. New networks include: AvalancheArbitrum, Cronos, Ethereum’s Görli testnet, Fantom, Near, Optimism, Polkadot, Polygon and Tron’s mainnet and Mumbai testnet.
We’re enhancing our #blockchain data offerings with 11 new chains in #BigQuery, as well as improvements to our existing datasets to make them more precise, accurate and reliable.

BigQuery is Google’s data warehouse service. Businesses can use it to: store your data and perform queries. It also provides some public datasets that can be queried, including Google Trends, American Community Service demographics, Google Analytics, and others.
Google launched a Bitcoin dataset as part of the service in 2018 and also introduced Ethereum later that year. As of February 2019 blockchain continued to expand its scope, adding Bitcoin Cash, Dash, Dogecoin, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin and Zcash. The September 21 announcement means BigQuery now carries data from a total of 19 blockchain networks.
In addition to the integrations of these new blockchains, Google has also implemented a new feature that aims to make it easier to query blockchains.. The team provided methods for handling long-form decimal results typically found on blockchains through a series of user-defined functions. In the post, Google explains that these new features “It will allow users to access larger decimal places for blockchain data and reduce rounding errors in calculations.”.
Over the past year, Google Cloud has become increasingly interested in blockchain technology. Became a partner on July 7 IncomeA. Lightning Network infrastructure provider.
