What is Dune Analytics?
Dune Analytics was founded in March 2019 by Fredrik Haga and Mats Olsen. It is an effective tool for tracking and obtaining reliable data on many elements of decentralized finance. It can be your devoted companion as you swim through the dark waters of blockchain finance, thanks to its wealth of queries and dashboards and the capacity to construct new queries and dashboards as needed.
The "discover" button allows you to see popular dashboards or search for specific data in the search field. Data could be presented in the form of lists or graphs and bar charts. The majority of queries are organized into dashboards, which are collections of queries displayed on a single screen.
The data you can find has some limits. Dune supports Ethereum, Polygon, BNB Chain, Optimism, and Gnosis Chain. Any smart contract written on those blockchains is likewise supported.
Simply click on a dashboard to see it. Dune does not save the blockchain's state data; instead, it displays the data returned by a Structured Query Language (SQL) query the last time data was requested.
Every time you view a query, it is refreshed. However, refreshing can take some time because you'll be placed in a line. As a result, your information may be a few minutes or hours old.
By selecting "new query" and typing SQL code, you can also create queries. Remember that the developer who designed the query is only as trustworthy as the Dune data.
Dune Analytics also provides a premium service. It costs $390 per. The premium version allows you to avoid the query queue and perform parallel queries, which means your analytics will be completed faster than for non-paid users. It also allows you to keep dashboards and queries private and export your data to CSV files.
