The modern-day blockchain ecosystem has completely revolutionized industry solutions to agile and high-stake problems. The blockchain revolution affects multiple problem areas by providing distributed, fast, robust, and reliable solutions.
Cryptocurrency is the most widely understood pioneer in the domain of new, blockchain-centered applications. In addition to Bitcoin and Ethereum, we now have multiple cryptocurrencies populating the market.
Since cryptocurrencies are the hot topic of the current decade, there is a lot of data surrounding them. Analysts and scientists continuously seek opportunities to efficiently visualize that data. Their goal, in particular, is to create effective data-centered findings that lead to automated and predictive applications.
In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the powerful cryptocurrency datasets that are available on the Google Cloud Marketplace. These are datasets that you can readily use for analysis and visualizations with FusionCharts.
We all know that Bitcoin brought the concept of cryptocurrency into reality. This Bitcoin dataset is easily available on Google Cloud Marketplace. You can also find it on BigQuery through the Google Cloud Public Datasets program.
Here is the link to the BigQuery explorer you can use to interact with the Bitcoin Cryptocurrency dataset.
Ethereum is another cryptocurrency that leverages blockchain technology to store transactions in a distributed ledger. As one of the leading cryptocurrencies on the market, Ethereum has a wide market share. This is largely due to its unique platform for creating decentralized applications in the digital ecosystem.
You can also use BigQuery explorer to interact with the Ethereum Cryptocurrency dataset.
Yet another cryptocurrency, a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) run by a subset of users, called “masternodes” runs Dash. Dash permits fast, difficult to trace transactions. Google Cloud Marketplace hosts the Dash dataset which contains the entire blockchain. The pre-processed dataset is human-friendly and contains clear metrics you can easily visualize and analyze.
Check out BigQuery explorer to see the Dash Cryptocurrency dataset.
Next is Litecoin. It uses a distributed ledger system that is more or less similar to Bitcoin. Litecoin uses the scrypt algorithm for proof-of-work and has a 2.5 minute block time. You can find it under the Google Cloud Public Datasets program.
Here is the link to the BigQuery explorer and the Litecoin Cryptocurrency dataset.
Zilliqa is a blockchain platform that uses the concept of sharding. Because cryptocurrency markets are more accessible and analysis increases daily, Zilliqa introduced a parallel transaction execution network that handles better loads with minimum latency.

After that comes Polygon. Polygon is Ethereum’s Internet of Blockchain. The Polygon SDK brings massive scale to Ethereum. It supports stand-alone chains and secured chains. You can also find the Polygon technology dataset on Google Cloud Marketplace for use in your data visualization and analysis projects.
Use the BigQuery explorer to view the Polygon Cryptocurrency dataset.
Then there is Dogecoin. This is another open-source peer-to-peer digital currency. The Dogecoin cryptocurrency dataset contains the whole blockchain. In addition, it is pre-processed to be human-friendly. It also supports common use cases such as auditing, investigating, so you can research the economic and financial properties of the system.
Here is the BigQuery explorer link to the Dogecoin Cryptocurrency dataset.
Tezos uses yet another technology for deploying a blockchain capable of modifying its own set of rules with minimal disruption to the network. It does this through an on-chain governance model. Download the Tezos dataset on Google Cloud Marketplace.
Alternatively, use the BigQuery explorer to explore with the Tezos Cryptocurrency dataset.
Theta is unique. This is because it pioneered next-generation, blockchain-powered esports entertainment platforms. In addition, Theta rewards anyone who restreams video and enables existing video platforms to deepen viewer engagement, drive incremental revenues, and reduce CDN costs. The Theta network also enables users to earn rewards by relaying video on a peer-to-peer basis. It uses excess bandwidth on any PC, mobile, Smart TV, or also IoT device.
The BigQuery explorer lets you interact with the Theta Cryptocurrency dataset.
Finally, Zcash is a cryptocurrency and distributed ledger system that provides enhanced privacy by including additional cryptographic features relative to Bitcoin. This dataset contains the blockchain data in its entirety, pre-processed to be human-friendly and to support common use cases such as auditing, investigating, and researching the economic and financial properties of the system.
Here is the link to the BigQuery explorer that you can use to interact with the Zcash Cryptocurrency dataset.
As you can see, in addition to the growing popularity of cryptocurrencies, there is also huge market adoption. The result is industry giants are taking notice. Google is a huge tech company. Generally speaking, the fact that its Cloud Marketplace publicly provides the datasets for cryptocurrencies really establishes the credibility of this distributed ledger technology.
These datasets available on Google Cloud Marketplace are highly preprocessed. Because of this, you can use them for your own visualization and analysis with minimum intervention. Best of all, FusionCharts is highly optimized for dealing with these large datasets. It is the perfect out-of-the-box visualization solution for your dashboards and applications.
