Ethereum’s popular scaling network Polygon has announced that its blockchain datasets are now integrated with Google Cloud’s BigQuery tool.

Polygon Data Available on Google Cloud

Polygon’s datasets are now available in Google Cloud.

According to Polygon, the integration with Google Cloud’s BigQuery service will help analysts, data scientists, and developers derive useful insights from the Polygon blockchain. Polygon runs a scalable bridge network running parallel to Ethereum and functions like a “commit chain” that is both faster and much cheaper than Ethereum mainnet.

The data insights platform will help the network’s growth with decentralized applications, as well as its usage in the enterprise setting.

Google’s Cloud division has collaborated with key cryptocurrency projects like Chainlink and Theta Network in the past. Both projects leveraged Google Cloud for their computing needs.

BigQuery is one of the most popular data analytics platforms worldwide. It leverages the capabilities of the Google Cloud Platform (GCP), the same infrastructure that powers products like Google Search, Gmail, and YouTube.

It is a simple yet powerful tool to query all kinds of datasets, including those pulled from public blockchains. After datasets are processed, the insights are organized using standard SQL syntax. According to Polygon, the tool functions as an “indexer” for both simple and complex queries used in on-chain analysis. For example, it can be used to run queries of several blockchains and track the activity associated with interoperable tokens.
