Easily upload your own data to Dune

This feature allows you to upload any csv file to Dune and query it like any other table in Dune. Currently, the we only supports uploading CSV files with a maximum size of 200 MB. The app will return an error if the file size exceeds this limit.
Additionally, column names in the table can’t start with a special character or digits.

The files you upload will be queryable via the schema dune.team_name.dataset_name. For example, if you upload a file called energy_data.csv to the team dune and name the dataset energy_data, you will be able to query the data via dune.dune.energy_data.

You’ll be able to query for your data in any query.

Select * from dune.dune.dataset_energy_data

All data uploaded is public and can be accessed by anyone.
Private data uploads are available only on the premium plan.

You can also upload data via the API. Check out the API documentation for more information.

Updating data

Currently there is no way to update the data of an already existing .csv file.

However, you can use the “query a query” feature to query multiple .csv files at once.

For example:


Select * from dune.dune.dataset_energy_data_1


Select * from dune.dune.dataset_energy_data_2

-- add more as it becomes relevant

In your main query, you could then simply refer to this query.

Select * from ethereum.transactions t
left join query_2441513 q on q.address = t."from"
