Correct! Wrong!


Because blockchain is not designed for traditional analytics tools:

  • Accessing usable data can be complex, making it hard to explore opportunities
  • Extracting data rapidly, at-scale, and at-cost is a nontrivial challenge and requires interpretation based on the smart contracts deployed

In simple terms, Pikespeak aims at:

  • Indexing, storing and transforming on-chain data into human-readable tables
  • Empowering users with powerful analytics

What for?

It depends on the problem/question you need to solve/answer. Here are a few tangible examples (non-exhaustive):

  • DeFi users
    • What’s the value and breakdown of my portfolio?
    • What’s my P/L over a specific period of time?
    • The taxman (ex: IRS) is asking for logs of my trades and blockchain activity for the last fiscal year, how can I provide that information?
    • I am interested in holding a token, but I would like to understand a few things; what’s the circulating supply? Who’s holding the token (rich list)? How do large holders behave? Have they been selling recently? How long have they been holding the token? Etc.
    • What are the largest token transfers over the last 24h?
  • Venture Capital companies

Data is great, stories are better

The cost to access on-data data is marginal compared to traditional and private markets, such as Stock Exchanges and customer insights (ex: panels) for a specific industry. That creates a unique opportunity for burgeoning journalists, investigators or any type of citizen journalism to emerge. The quality and coverage of the FTX debacle on Twitter was a great illustration of that trend.

Moreover, the NEARWEEK Report-to-Earn model is an innovative way to incentivise citizen journalism and push people to participate in the News content creation process.

Below is a list of events that could potentially lead to interesting and insightful stories. We would like to encourage the LNC community to leverage Pikespeak to tell great stories.

  • June 23rd, 2022 – 39M $NEAR tokens were unstaked from validators
  • March 4th, 5th and 6th, 2023 – Near Social (social.near) has had a significant inflow of new users
  • March 8th, 2023 – The Multi Sender (multisender.app.near) contract (send multiple transfers in one simple transaction) sent $1.13M to multiple addresses, its largest transaction since creation
