SQL Query: 3 Methods for Calculating Cumulative SUM

SQL provides various constructs for calculating cumulative sums, offering flexibility and efficiency in data analysis. In this article, we explore three distinct SQL queries that facilitate the computation of cumulative sums. Each query leverages different SQL constructs to achieve the desired outcome, catering to diverse analytical needs and preferences. Using Window Functions (e.g., PostgreSQL, SQL Server, Oracle) SELECT id, value, SUM(value) OVER (ORDER BY id) AS cumulative_sum  FROM your_table; This query uses the SUM() window function with the OVER clause to calculate the cumulative sum of the value column ordered by the id column. Using Subqueries (e.g., MySQL, SQLite): SELECT t1.id, t1.value, SUM(t2.value) AS cumulative_sum FROM your_table t1 JOIN your_table t2 ON t1.id >= t2.id GROUP BY t1.id, t1.value ORDER BY t1.id; This query uses a self-join to calculate the cumulative sum. It joins the table with itself, matching rows where the id in the first table is greater than or

The Essential Guide to Blockchain Terminology

Bitcoin was the first project developed by using blockchain. My post is to share Blockchain keywords by using an example of Bitcoin.

Let us ready...

Blockchain is new technology. Understanding its principles makes you helpful to apply in your projects. 

Initially, the purpose of Blockchain development was to carry mining. In general, mining means search and find value. Usually, mining processes are two types. Those are data mining and bitcoin mining.

Blockchain Glossary

  1. Blockchain - only blocks involved. The data which was finalized stored in blocks.
  2. Bitcoin Ledger - It is a public ledger
  3. Ledger or Blockchain - The chain of blocks
  4. Functions of Blockchain - It validates each transaction, Keeps track, and verifies ownership
  5. Double Spending- It prevents duplicating the Cryptocurrency for using next time.
  6. Consensus mechanism - It is also called PoW (proof of work). This mechanism avoids double-spending
  7. Group of Transactions - When a new group of transactions created, those will be added to the blockchain.
  8. Hash - Group of transactions created a Hash. This hash will be stored along with a group of transactions in the Blockchain. Hashing is the top security mechanism in the blockchain.
  9. Mining - It doesn't create Bitcoins and alter or modify blockchain. The miners will be rewarded with Bitcoins

Blockchain types

Here are three types of Blockchains

Private blockchains

  • Private blockchains are great for developers because they allow them to test ideas without using cryptocurrency. The developers’ ideas can remain a secret as well because the data has not been published publicly.
  • Large institutions can capitalize on the security and permanence of blockchain technology without their transactions being public the way they are in traditional blockchains.

    Public Blockchains

    • Public blockchains are available to the general public. An example is buying an art piece from a vendor located in another country.

    Hybrid Blockchains

    • These are a combination of public and private.
