The examples show charts with live data from the eth.events cluster. The cluster stores more than 1 TB of data and more than 75.000.000 events since the Genesis Block. The indexer constantly updates the cluster with live data from the Ethereum main chain.
On load the page passes a query with filters and aggregations to the eth.events API. It returns the data as a JSON-object. The data is marginally processed and shown in a ChartJS Bar-Chart.
No, but you could easily build a block explorer on top of eth.events.
Etherscan provides an API, which is returning the first 1000 event logs per query with no further filtering options.
No. Eth.events is not meant to be installed locally. You can access the index via our ElasticSearch REST-API using tools like CURL, Postman or your preferred programming language.
Please check our documentation on how to access the API and contact us for a personal login.
We cannot say yet. The basic functionality of eth.events will be free for the foreseeable future. For special use cases we're open for discussion.
Simply plug into the eth.events API to get access to the Ethereum mainnet. You do not need to setup your own index or wait on your web3 client to fully sync.
Eth.events indexes blocks, transactions, logs and human-readable smart contract events from the ethereum mainnet. This way, you could answer questions like:
