A marriage of Market data with Blockchain data

Blockchains don’t have any outside data. It means blockchains don’t know the fiat price of any asset or token. However, fiat data makes blockchain analytics more meaningful.

For example, it is easier to understand that today’s average bitcoin fee was $1.5 rather than it was 0.00003323 BTC.

Our motto at Bitquery is “Adding meaning to Blockchain data.” Therefore providing market data with our Onchain APIs was on our road map for a long time.

Today I am happy to tell you that we have added market data to our Ethereum dataset. Therefore now you can get fiat valued in our APIs when you query Ethereum data.

Market data will be helpful for many use cases, such as USD-based DEX or token analysis.

How to get blockchain values in Fiat?

Let’s also understand how you can get USD based data using our APIs.

You need to add (in: USD) against any value for which you want a USD amount. For example, in the following query, we are adding (in: USD) against the tradeAmount .

In addition, you can also get these values in USDT and ETH. For example: tradeAmount(in: USDT) or tradeAmount(in: ETH).

Here are a few more query examples with USD data.

Note: Checkout our GraphQL playground, we are making some improvements to make it easy to work with Blockchain data APIs. Another important thing to remember is that, you can use GraphQL queries as API.
