Welcome to Spice
Welcome to the Spice documentation!
Spice is a high-performance web3 data provider and platform for applications, machine learning (ML), and data science. It's built and supported by the team at Spice AI.
Obtaining blockchain and smart-contract data is hard.
For data in a format and quantities that's useful, you have to:
- 😓 build and operate archive node and data infrastructure
- 😓 understand and call JSON RPC APIs and smart-contract ABIs
- 😓 manage 10s of TBs of data
Spice makes it easy.
With Spice, you can query blockchain data using SQL in seconds and fetch results in JSON or Apache Arrow for easy use with apps, ML, or libraries like NumPy and Pandas.
Spice currently supports Ethereum, Bitcoin, and Polygon blockchain and contract data. We have plans to support many chains prioritized by user feedback. We expect to next support Solana.
In addition to supporting standard web3 JSON RPC, Spice provides querying for historical on-chain data available in both block-level and time-aggregated result sets.
