Snowflake access guide


Token Flow blockchain data is available Snowflake. You can either select one of the public listings from the Snowflake Data Marketplace or get in touch with us for a customised offer.
As we are transitioning to a stable product, our data sets will no longer be available as free beta starting 30th September 2023.
Besides the cost of the data set, you will have additional cost on you Snowflake account. This includes:
  • Snowflake computation cost (variable depending on the queries you run and the warehouse size you chose)
  • Snowflake storage cost for any data stored in your own account. You will not pay for storage of the data shared by Token Flow.
There are three sections to this guide:
  1. 1.
    Signing up to Snowflake (skip this section if you already have an account)
  2. 2.
    Accessing Token Flow data via Snowflake Data Marketplace

Signing up to Snowflake

If you are new to Snowflake, you will need to sign up before being able to access Token Flow data. Start the signup process here.
You will need to provide the following information:
  • Name
  • Email
  • Company / Organization
  • Cloud service and region (AWS us-east1 is recommended, other AWS and GCP regions are supported; we don't currently support Azure)
In full transparency there are quite a few steps to walk through. But as a first time user, you get a couple of benefits:
  • 30 day free trial where both storage and computation costs on your account are covered;
  • No credit card information is required during the trial period, unless you chose to already purchase one of our data sets (thank you);
  • Lots of links to Snowflake "getting started" and full documentation and videos as you sign up Snowflake introductions.
Once you're set up then you can go to the Snowflake Marketplace, find our company profile and request access to our data.

Accessing Token Flow data

Once you have a Snowflake account, follow these steps to start using our data:
  • Browse through our available listings. You'll see what exactly is included, the needs it meets, as well as some usage examples. Unless mentioned otherwise, all our data sets are updated close to real-time (~15 blocks from the tip of the chain). Make sure that you check out the terms and available regions.
  • Chose the data set that meets your needs and request it directly in the user interface. If you have not provided credit card details before, you will be requested to add them when you make the purchase.
If you can't find exactly what you're looking for, get in touch and we'll be more than happy to find a solution for you.
Token Flow data is intended for own use only without redistribution rights. Copying the data to your own account in Snowflake or to another data storage is not permitted. (see our Terms of Service for more information).

Using Token Flow data

Once you have access to our data you can:
  • Use Snowsight - The Snowflake Web Interface to write queries and visualize results directly in your browser. You will be able to use Token Flow data on its own or joining with any other data sets that you already have in your own account.
  • Connect Snowflake to an analytics tool directly (we have tested some so you don't have to)
  • Use Snowflake like any other cloud database and connect it to your existing ecosystem.
