Integrate Blockchain Data into Mixpanel


Navigating the complex world of data analytics, blockchain data emerges as both a challenge and an opportunity. While Mixpanel offers robust insights into customer behaviors and product interactions, its integration with blockchain data is not inherently straightforward. Riverflow emerges as a pivotal solution, adeptly connecting the dots between advanced blockchain technology and traditional analytics tools. This guide delves into how Riverflow effortlessly brings blockchain data into the Mixpanel ecosystem, revolutionizing your data analysis capabilities.

Why Mixpanel with Blockchain Data?

Incorporating blockchain data into Mixpanel opens up a new dimension of analytics. This integration not only enhances existing insights but also introduces a wealth of new data points, ranging from token transaction tracking to the intricacies of smart contract engagements. Such integration empowers data analysts to:

  • Attain a holistic understanding of user behaviors spanning both Web2 and Web3 platforms.

  • Monitor and analyze trends in decentralized finance (DeFi) and their influence on consumer actions.

  • Draw meaningful connections between blockchain-related activities and key engagement indicators within Mixpanel.

Getting Started with Riverflow and Mixpanel

Integrating Riverflow with Mixpanel is a straightforward process:

  1. Set Up Riverflow Account: Start by creating an account on riverflow.co

  2. Start creating your first Real-time data stream: Select events you would like to send to Mixpanel and apply relevant filters to them.

  3. Select Mixpanel destination: In the "Destination section" click 'Select Destination' > 'Mixpanel'

  1. Configure Mixpanel destination

After selecting Mixpanel as a destination, you will need to setup the destination so that Riverflow can send data to your Mixpanel account. You will need to input:

  • Your Mixpanel API endpoint: Choose EU or US depanding of where you want your data to be store in Mixpanel

  • Your Mixpanel API key: this is the identifier of your Mixpanel project that you can find in your personal settings in Mixpanel (you will find here more information on how to find your Mixpanel API key)

  1. Configure your Mapping for Mixpanel

To properly store blockchain data in Mixpanel, Mixpanel needs blockchain data to be associated with a user. In Riverflow, this means that you will need to map your event properties with Mixpanel properties. At least, one of your event properties should be renamed 'distinct_id' so that Mixpanel understand that the renamed blockchain event property should match the disctinct_id variable in Mixpanel.

Requirement: the distinct_id should reflect a variable containing wallet addresses. In Mixpanel, your main user identifier, distinct_id, should also be your users wallet addresses.
