Paris. 5th March 2019 – Alethio built a robust, stable data pipeline of synthesised, real-time Ethereum blockchain data. With subscription API access, Alethio is now opening up its data pipeline to help accelerate dApp development and improve access to meaningful insights on the Ethereum network.
Blockchains store data in ways that most applications find inaccessible. “Alethio’s core API will now help developers, businesses, researchers, or journalists easily access the information that matters most — whether that be a particular address, transaction, token, token sale event, activity, or actor. Based on Alethio’s data pipeline, these intuitive tools provide new ways for teams to quickly and proactively access digestible, real-time Ethereum data in formats that can be better tailored to user and business needs,” said Christian Crowley, Co-Lead, Alethio .
When data is in a state of amnesia
Since the launch of the Ethereum network, there is a river of historical data that simply isn’t useful until transformed into a human-readable format that can be analysed visually .The first tool the Alethio team released was a user-friendly EthStats Explorer . Fueled by data science, semantic modelling, and machine learning, Alethio’s technology and products sit on top of a living index of the entire Ethereum blockchain and emphasise user experience, custom insights, and meaningful data visualisations.
Data scientists at Alethio have used these tools to explore important issues in the Ethereum network: whether mining pools are centralized , a topology of the major accounts on the Ethereum network (figure 1), a visualisation of the Gnosis token auction , a retrospective of the EOS token sale (figure 3), and activities happening on decentralised exchanges.
New API features and associated Analytics Suite
Block explorers err on the side of comprehensiveness, often displaying data users must navigate through to obtain information or insight that’s relevant at that moment through which to access blockchain data, but this cannot be the only available means. Common block explorers show comprehensive data all on one page. Alethio’s new API and associated Analytics Suite is meant to offer a flexible range of dynamic access pathways to only show the data you need, more directly and efficiently.
The API is designed to provide a full annotated history for any account, reveal the entire network of smart contract interactions ,show analysis of value flow of on-chain asset transfers, and is all backed up by Alethio’s enterprise-grade REST API big data infrastructure.
The API is designed around the frequent needs and pain points of the Ethereum developer community and features a powerful data model with interlinked, aggregated responses, in line with best practices and standards such as EthOn and JSON:API .
Actively monitor any external account or smart contract. Set custom threshold or behaviour based alerts based on what matters most to you and your business. Receive push notifications via the medium of your choosing. From actively tracking competitive activity to ensuring the security of your deployed smart contract, Alethio Monitoring helps you sift through the noise and ensure you stay ahead of important on-chain activity to enhance your decision making.

Alethio Reporting provides users access to structured, semantic Ethereum data sets that are tailored to their specific business and research needs. The queries are customisable and available on-demand; they satisfy a wide variety of use cases and serve as a foundation to generate recurring reports on a designated schedule. Users may integrate visualisation and business intelligence tools in conjunction with Alethio Reporting data to realise diverse analytical solutions for Ethereum. Check out the demo video .
These tools will be linked by a forthcoming ‘one Alethio’ account and are intimately linked by Alethio’s underlying data pipeline. They will continue to evolve and coalesce into a modular, holistic blockchain analytics and intelligence solution.
Importantly for enterprises, Alethio has architected these tools to be fully deployable on private, permissioned, and semi-permissioned Ethereum networks. Alethio is also actively working to integrate with Pantheon, Kaleido, Viant, and Adhara, among other Enterprise-focused partners.
