There are growing number of crypto currencies currently translated into public access via BigQuery by means of Google Cloud. For example, see here, here, or here. Also this article in Forbes about this trend.
In the articles above, we can clearly see the motivation that was behind that decision.
Can we, as a Tezos community, make the similar effort and translate the entire blockchain into open DB format? It may be GCP+BigQuery or AWS+Redshift, etc.
That effort may require a constant synchronization, but example in this direction is already exists. For instance, this baker is delivering the current DB state on regular basis. This service allow anybody to grab the recent DB snapshot and use it.
Now, we may need to consider making entire DB available for SQL queries and searchable publicly. Projects involved in block exploration may be better positioned here.
Just want to ask what is needed for it? Is it something that requires deep knowledge of Tezos proprietary DB?
My guess that sooner or later every meaningful blockchain will be explored through Google. Everybody may have a chance to say "Hey Google, show me the block 327239 in Tezos" or simply type SQL in BigQuery and Google will present something similar to https://tzscan.io/327239 but using BigQuery with applied visual analytics. Just dreaming. But who knows, maybe there are people who have been thinking about it as well.
