Labels

A label is a tag on an address that provides human-readable context to events and balances. Flipside applies a standardized 2-level hierarchy to all labeled addresses using 4 field attributes. There is no need to join a secondary table to group or filter by label attributes on Event and Balance tables.

Field

Description

label_type

A high-level category describing the addresses main function or ownership (eg exchange)

label_subtype

A sub-category nested within label type providing further detail (e.g. exchange deposit wallet)

label

The name of the entity that controls the address (e.g. Binance).

address_name

A description of the use of the address by the controlling entity (e.g. Binance deposit wallet)

Events and balance tables are automatically enriched with label columns corresponding to any column that contains an address type. The pattern for these columns names is: {address_function}_{label_attribute}

For example, in an events table, the following columns would be present to account for labels on the event_from . These would also exist for event_to, tx_from,tx_to, etc.

event_from_label_type
event_from_label_subtype
event_from_label
event_from_address_name
