How to get newly created Ethereum Tokens?

Anyone can create different types of tokens using Etheruem smart contracts. At the time of writing this article, more than 112,373 different tokens were already created on the Ethereum blockchain using ERC20, ERC721, ERC223, ERC827 standards.

Ethereum users create more than 100 tokens on an average day. This data can help you to get early access to new projects, which can 

This article will show you how to get newly created Ethereum tokens using a simple GraphQL query.

The following query provides all the newly created token for ERC20, ERC721, ERC223, ERC827 standards. It means whenever a new smart contract of this standard is deployed, our database index those smart contract as Tokens.

You can run the given query, our Bitquery GraphQL editor. (https://graphql.bitquery.io/)

Newly created Ethereum Tokens

{
ethereum {
smartContractCalls(options: {desc: "block.height", limit: 10},
smartContractMethod: {is: "Contract Creation"},
smartContractType: {is: Token}) {
block {
height
timestamp {
time
}
}
smartContract {
contractType
address {
address
annotation
}
currency {
name
symbol
decimals
tokenType
}
}
}
}
}

Here is the Github gist for the above query. Besides, the above GraphQL query can be used as an API.

Results

Here is how results look like when you run the following query.

{
"data": {
"ethereum": {
"smartContractCalls": [
{
"block": {
"height": 10999795,
"timestamp": {
"time": "2020-10-06 03:36:28"
}
},
"smartContract": {
"contractType": "Token",

}
}
},
{

}
},
"smartContract": {

}
},
"smartContract": {
"contractType": "Token",

}
}
}

As you can see above query provide the token details and also the token standard types. 

You can tweak the query to get more details or filter the results based on your needs. Besides, you can also add a data time filter if you want.

Here is an example:

{
ethereum {
smartContractCalls(options: {desc: "block.height", limit: 10},
date:{since: "2020-10-01", till: "2020-10-31"},
smartContractMethod: {is: "Contract Creation"},
smartContractType: {is: Token}) {
block {
height
timestamp {
time
}
}
smartContract {
contractType
address {
address
annotation
}
currency {
name
symbol
decimals
tokenType
}
}
}
}
}
