A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11971878B2) outlines a system designed to support both batch processing and streaming data applications. The system includes a multi-layer data platform that indexes on-chain data, with operations involving populating datasets based on receiving on-chain data from a blockchain network. The first dataset stores hexadecimal encoded data from a block in a blockchain-interface layer, while the second dataset transforms this data into a columnar format and stores it in a data lakehouse layer. The method further involves detecting new on-chain data, appending it to an unbounded table, and storing it in the second dataset, enabling efficient data processing and storage.

Additionally, the patent describes a method that includes receiving, transforming, and storing on-chain data in different formats across various layers of the system. The method involves detecting new data, modifying existing data, and generating outputs based on the processed datasets. It also includes provisions for handling blockchain network reorganizations, accessing smart contract interfaces, and optimizing workflow architectures for efficient data processing. The system aims to provide a comprehensive solution for managing on-chain data from blockchain networks, enabling seamless integration of batch processing and streaming applications while ensuring data integrity and accessibility for various query operations through static table queries.
