RE: Using HiveSQL with Python on Mac

in LeoFinance2 months ago

For hive this is the best but unfortunately for second layer tokens I don't think HiveSQL is the solution though since we can't depend on Custom JSON . I used to use HiveSQL , now I am shifitng to hive-engine API.

Interesting. I haven’t explored all tables and columns yet. I would think all data should be available there. I will keep that in mind. Thanks.

Well yeah the last table is TxCustoms table where you can see the 2nd layer custom json data .

There are a lot of duplicates over there ,
For ex :

I tried to retrieve total LEO staked data - Actual stake was around 7k ( for around 10 days ) but I got 8.3k . When I check manually there were lot of stake json's appearing twice .

All the hive related data are accurate though . Only the Custom JSON part has irregularities.

Thank you for this information. I will keep that in mind when I explore the data in that table. I think those issues can be resolved though.

  1. If there is error when the custom_json data is stored on HiveSQL, we should probably let @arcange know.
  2. If the problem is due to how layer 2 data is stored on blockchain, I would assume it could be sorted out with python.

It is interesting. I will definitely keep that in mind when I get to learning more about custom_json.

Yeah 2nd point is actually what I used for a while but when the tx's are huge it became increasingly difficult for me to sort out the irregularities .

The problem isn't with HiveSQL . check this out -


I went to that particular user history on hiveblocks and checked manually and I saw that there was actually two custom_json for the stake . One was rejected and one was accepted but that won't be shown in HiveSQL table , HiveSQL TxCustoms table shows all custom_json tx's irrespective of whether it is valid or not. It is shown in 'logs' in hive explorer that one is accepted and other is rejected.

How are ‘rejected’ and ‘accepted’ stored on the blockchain? separate custom_json?

That's what troubled me too, I asked the same on discord couple of weeks ago and got this answer

There is a bug in Keychain where some transactions are broadcasted twice. I guess this is something related to that. Even though two custom jsons were processed at the same time, Hive Engine would have accepted only one.

Then I headed down to Hive Engine explorer and saw this

First image ( accepted stake )

Second image ( rejected stake )


So the payload for both the custom_json was the same but the 'logs' was different . So if you want reliable 2nd layer token JSON data , according to me , hiveengine API is where to look at.

HiveSQL stores 'payload' in its table but what we need here is actually 'logs' . So right now I am extracting all the data from December 1st and storing it in JSON format ( although I prefer CSV , it will become difficult for me to clean it later) .

Did any of the above make sense?

Yes, everything makes sense. I looked at some examples. You are right, there is no way to see which one is rejected, or accepted in HiveSQL.

The question is if 'logs' is actually stored in the blockchain or is it probably stored in a separate hive-engine database?

custom_json are non-consensus operations. This means that the blockchain will never reject any (except if authorities are missing).

Therefore, HiveSQL (like the blockchain) includes all broadcasted custom_json, even if "duplicate" or considered as invalid by a 2nd layer app.

This is why there is no hive-engine "state" table in HiveSQL because the hive-engine code is closed source and HiveSQL doesn't know how to interpret those operations.

Hm that's the question I am trying to find answer too. I would love to work with HiveSQL itself because via API it takes a lot of time.
