Art Blocks is a digital platform for creative coding which involves computer and algorithmic generated art that can be in the form of images, gifs, 3D models, etc. The platform is based on blockchain, to be more precise, on Ethereum-based NFTs for integration of creation and ownership of generated art. As with any blockchain project, the exchange process is based on the block of transactions. Transactions on the blockchain happen in real-time and change constantly, but if you download and take a static dataset, there is no change or events in the dataset you can react to. So, we at Memgraph decided to have some fun building real-time analytics on streaming data, and to get datasets in motion, we created Awesome Data Stream, a data streams website, to make things dynamic and real-time. There, you can also find all the details about the Art Blocks dataset used in this blog post.

Data coming from these streams can be run through Memgraph, which you can set up using the new Memgraph Cloud or by running a local instance of MemgraphDB. The latest version of Memgraph Lab, an application you can use to query and visualize data, has a new feature that guides you through the process of connecting to streams. All the information necessary to connect to a stream is available on the Awesome Data Stream website. If these tools spark your interest, feel free to browse through the Cloud documentation or check out the guide on how to connect to streams using Memgraph Lab. If you are a true fan of visual arts, watch the video tutorial that goes through both of these processes.
