Grant ID: 31gh8p3
A Telegram bot (notification framework) which currently provides Curators, Indexers and others (in multiple telegram groups/channel) with (crucial) near realtime information about events happening in The Graph Mainnet (Subgraphs, Signals, Query Fees, ‘Listed’ ETH address activities, etc). Includes a few (search) commands to display subgraph/signal/listed-address information.
It could already notify about any value being changed/added in Mainnet.
Most recently, implemented screenshot functionality which allows it to show 5 timed billing charts (DappLooker) each month.
Includes channel rules and reputation system for the Telegram group ($GRT Curation Station) it was born in since the group started, 15 months ago (July 2021).

Please select the category your project best fits into:
Please select who you think will benefit from your project?:
Curators, Indexers, Subgraph Developers, Other
How much funding are you looking for? (USD):
Provide a breakdown of your requested funding:
The biggest part (3K) is back payment, for developing, optmizing, hosting and maintaining/upgrading it for 15 months already. Am quite sure atleast 3 months ft. on development/research alone has already been put in it.
(1K) for this Q4 2022 we are in, and (± 1K) tax.
This does not mean that every future suggestion/request will be added into it, but more requests would be considered and potentially added. There are still a few tasks open where i couldn’t motivate myself enough for yet. This grant would surely change that.
Might apply for continious grant in Januari, but for the moment it’s hard to estimate development work.
Have you applied for (or already received) funding from somewhere else?:
If yes, please describe where you’ve received funding from and how much you have, or will, receive:
Have not received official funding. Was involved with 2 grants (with multiple participants) before of which 1 failed and i didn’t received funds from, and the other one was not accepted, since it is too soon.
Did however received a few donations/tokens of appreciation (less then 400 USD).
What’s your vision for how your project will impact The Graph and/or web3?:
What can you share about any past work that is relevant to this grant?:
Why are you interested in contributing to The Graph and/or web3?:
For me it started with curating on subgraphs/dApp projects. With my professional background, it’s technicaly very interesting to aid ideals from Web3. Surelly hope Web3 & blockchains in general will overtrow centralisation and unequal living standards/capitalism in the world at some point.
