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

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

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.
The following query gives you the top DEX trades based on USD value.
The query below gives you trades with the highest Gas spent.
We also added some USD based metrics on explorer to show how market data enriches the blockchain data.
The following widget shows to DEX market share based on trade volume.
The widget below shows the Ethereum miner rewards in USD.
The following widget shows the top DEX currencies based on trading volume.
We believe mixing market data with blockchain data will help many analysts looking to build custom blockchain analytics. If you have any questions please, join our Telegram group and let us know.
