Timestamps and Resolutions


All metric timestamps are denoted in UTC and always refer to the start of an interval.
  • Monthly resolution: 2019-05-01 --> Includes data from2019-05-01 00:00 UTC to 2019-05-31 23:59 UTC (i.e. May 2019)
  • Weekly resolution: 2019-05-13 --> Includes data from 2019-05-13 00:00 UTC to 2019-05-19 23:59 UTC (i.e. Week 20)
  • Daily resolution: 2019-05-13--> Includes data from2019-05-13 00:00 UTC to 2019-05-13 23:59 UTC
  • Hourly resolution: 2019-05-13 10:00 UTC --> Includes data from2019-05-13 10:00 UTC to 2019-05-13 10:59 UTC
  • 10 Min resolution: 2019-05-13 10:20 UTC --> Includes data from 2019-05-13 10:20 UTC to 2019-05-13 10:29 UTC


Currently, Glassnode metrics as available in the following resolutions*:
  • 1 month (API param: 1month)
  • 1 week (1w)
  • 1 day (24h)
  • 1 hour (1h)
  • 10 minutes (10m)
Resolution means the frequency at which the data is being updated, as well as the time window over which a metric is being aggregated.
For instance, the number of active addresses on a 24h resolution shows the total number of active addresses over 24 hours (the time window). In addition, a new data point is provided once a day (the frequency). The same mechanism is applied analogously to all other resolutions.
For metrics that show the current state of the blockchain rather than an aggregate over a window (e.g. the number of addresses with a non-zero balance), the value refers to the time at the end of the interval.
*All metrics are always available at a 24h resolution. Whether other resolutions are available for a particular metric, depends on the metric and your plan. For a full overview of which metric is currently available a what resolution, please refer to our Metrics Catalogue.
