Google Cloud’s BigQuery program now includes 11 new blockchains, including Polygon, Avalanche, Tron, and Polkadot. These additions enhance the platform’s blockchain data offering, allowing developers to retrieve on-chain data off-chain without directly querying the blockchain.
The expansion of BigQuery’s public datasets aims to provide a comprehensive view of the crypto landscape and meet the growing demand for more extensive blockchain analytics. In addition to the 11 new networks, Google is planning to improve the Bitcoin BigQuery dataset by adding Ordinals/Satoshis (sats) to address the congestion issue on the Bitcoin network caused by the popularity of Ordinals.
Google Cloud recently formed a strategic alliance with blockchain platform Zilliqa and became a staked seed node operator. Additionally, LayerZero, an interoperability protocol, selected Google Cloud as its default messaging verifier.

What are the new blockchains included in Google Cloud’s BigQuery?
The new blockchains added to Google Cloud’s BigQuery program include Polygon, Avalanche, Tron, Polkadot, Arbitrum, Ethereum (Görli), Cronos, Fantom (Opera), Near, and Optimism.
Why did Google Cloud expand the BigQuery program to include more blockchains?
Google Cloud expanded the BigQuery program to meet the demand for a comprehensive view of the crypto landscape and to provide developers with more extensive blockchain analytics capabilities.
How will the addition of Ordinals/Satoshis to the Bitcoin BigQuery dataset address network congestion?
The popularity of Ordinals in 2023 has contributed to network congestion on the Bitcoin network. By adding Ordinals/Satoshis (sats) to the Bitcoin BigQuery dataset, Google aims to address this congestion issue by providing more detailed data for analysis and optimization.
