Grant ID: 358u9jv
Our product will transform on-chain events into a human readable cross chain block explorer and integrate external data for context so that users can connect the dots on web3 activity that is relevant to them.
We will first personalize what a user sees based on their on-chain activity and then build relationships between their activity and that of others. Then we’ll start to integrate off-chain context specific to the user such as the health of a DeFi position, applicable regulations, governance proposals and much more. All while making it easy for any user to create narratives based on what they’re seeing on-chain so any other user can follow what they’re doing.

How much funding are you looking for? (USD):
Provide a breakdown of your requested funding:
The costs will purely go towards development:
- Infrastructure resources (deploying on The Graph and testing higher volume) ~20%
- Developer hiring: our team has 2 part time engineers working on this, this will go towards hiring an additional contract engineer for enough months to help us get off the ground.
Have you applied for (or already received) funding from somewhere else?:
What’s your vision for how your project will impact The Graph and/or web3?:
Crypto hasn’t live up to its promise of transparency - at least for most people. High learning curves and technical knowhow makes it difficult for the average user to connect the dots on how different entities or actions across the web3 ecosystem can impact them.
The Graph is about making web3 data truly accessible. We want to take that to the next level so mainstream users can easily do this.
What can you share about any past work that is relevant to this grant?:
We previously worked on something we thought we would pivot into another crypto wallet. We called this project Canary since it is based on monitoring users’ wallets, alerting them of abnormal transactions and providing a quick eject tool to a backup wallet.
That was more security focused but it did help us understand how to build off web3 more since our experience was very much web2 before this.
Why are you interested in contributing to The Graph and/or web3?:
My team and I have been in crypto since 2016. While I was purely an investor then, I fell down the rabbit hole hard, a term you don’t hear much of nowadays. I loved reading through real whitepapers that taught me how cryptography, consensus mechanisms and zero knowledge proof worked.
Since then, I’ve seen new waves rise and fall. Now I want to contribute the next wave since I don’t want users to experience the same problems I did when I couldn’t figure out entities and transactions were related in a way that impacted me.
