At dfuse our mission is to empower the tens of millions of developers around the world to integrate blockchain into their applications -- easier, faster and cheaper. To help accelerate the adoption of Ethereum by developers, the dfuse team is a sponsor of the upcoming ETHWaterloo Hackathon taking place November 8 to 10, 2019 in the beautiful city of Waterloo.
It is with great excitement that, today, the dfuse team unveils dfuse Search for Ethereum.
When pulling data from the blockchain, most of the information returned is stored in binary format so as to save space and allow for quicker transmission of data. This makes it difficult to sift through, as it first needs to be decoded into a readable format (ex: JSON). dfuse has recently expanded its GraphQL endpoints to include ABI-decoded table rows inside dfuse Search results.
We have three exciting additions to enhance your development experience with dfuse. Improve your dfuse Search queries with our new
NOT operator. Through our new API endpoints, you can perform a REST API call to retrieve a transaction’s lifecycle, or look up a block number or block ID from a timestamp.
Learn about why we built a custom solution to replace the History API from
nodeos. Our powerful search query language with our deep indexing of the data, provides the best way to retrieve *just* the data you want from the blockchain. Coupled with GraphQL Subscription and chain-wide cursors, and you can easily provide your UI with historical data AND listen for incoming matches.

The ability to quickly and efficiently sift through the billions of data points generated by the EOS mainnet cannot be underestimated. Powered by dfuse, the eosq block explorer now offers a contextual search, a unique-to-EOS feature, making it even easier to find the data users seek on a blockchain.
Delivering the most advanced search capabilities for any blockchain, dfuse Search brings tremendous power to eosq. This means that non-developers can now have quick access to the deep knowledge that only dfuse can offer.
Following the great feedback we have received from developers using the dfuse API, we have recently added new indexes to improve the queryability of the chain. Today, we are happy to highlight some of them to help you develop faster and more powerful applications on the blockchain.
In the past few weeks, we have seen steep adoption of the dfuse Search, even though it strictly returned irreversible results. Today we're happy to announce that you can now query transactions in “reversible” blocks as well (those more recent than the last irreversible block).
