Empowering Next-Level Insights: Comprehensive Analytics for Polkadot and Kusama Now on Dune

Dune and Colorful Notion have partnered to bring Polkadot ecosystem data to Dune for the first time. From today, you can start querying the Polkadot and Kusama relay chains on Dune alongside AssetHub for Polkadot, Astar, Bifrost, Hydradx, Interlay, and Centrifuge parachains!

“Visualization is a key factor in making technology tangible to most people. This deep integration of Polkadot data into Dune is a key step which makes analysis and consequently usage of Polkadot much more accessible.” – Robert Habermeier, Polkadot Co-founder + Polkadot Fellow.

The partnership signifies an expansion of ecosystem coverage on Dune, increasing the accessibility of data for a new set of data wizards. Passed in January 2024, Polkadot OpenGov Referendum #366 funds an enterprise-level Dune integration of Polkadot+Kusama, Polkadot+Kusama system chains, and Polkadot parachains for a period of one year, with third-party indexer Colorful Notion responsible for building dashboards for leading Polkadot parachains and projects. 

The Colorful Notion team is no stranger to Polkadot, having been active in the community for over two years. It was also the creator of substrate-etl, a large-scale index of Polkadot+Kusama in Google BigQuery with two relay chains and over 70 indexed parachains.

“We are thrilled to bring the vibrant Polkadot ecosystem together with the Dune community. Our mission has always been to illuminate the intricacies of the Polkadot and broader Substrate and Web3 ecosystem, and this partnership is a testament to that commitment.” – Sourabh Niyogi, CEO & Co-Founder at Colorful Notion.

Fredrik Haga, Co-Founder & CEO of Dune, echoed Niyogi’s enthusiasm for the partnership, adding, “There’s always been more demand for getting data on Dune than we can accommodate ourselves. This groundbreaking partnership with Colorful Notion brings not only Polkadot and Kusama data to Dune, but their deep understanding of that ecosystem. Our mission is to make crypto data accessible, and we’re thrilled to help the Polkadot ecosystem with that, together with Colorful Notion.”

Starting today, Dune users can start querying Polkadot and Kusama relay chain data, as well as six selected parachains, to unearth previously inaccessible on-chain activity: decoded Substrate block data tables, extrinsics, calls, events, transfers as well as an in-depth snapshots of selected storage maps. Data is ingested hourly.

The full complement of Polkadot parachains will be onboarded in April and May. By providing comprehensive and accurate data from the Polkadot ecosystem, Colorful Notion ensures Dune users can access Substrate data to fuel their analysis and decision-making and share results.
