Here is the second proposal to support the data analytics needs for Aragon team. You can find the first proposal (funded) here.
To cover the ongoing cost before the AGP vote in July, we’d like to ask for 800 usd/month if paid quarterly or 900 usd/month if paid monthly for May, June and July.
Over the past few months, we have been working closely with Luis, Jorge, Brett, Luke, and John to address the growing needs of data analytics. We have been producing over 30 charts under two dashboards:
We have also made good progress on the self service tool. Although most of charts are still being created by us today, you can already start using Scout self service tool to create charts and dashboard yourself.
For example, you could create a real time dashboard to monitor the AGP votes. The screenshot is an example of charting voting results in AGP42 (voteId=14)
The experience at this moment is still quite clumsy and you need to have quite a good amount of knowledge in smart contracts in order to do it. But we will definitely improve it over time.
One thing that I promised to do but haven’t had time to do is to write a post to share our learnings of Aragon protocol, such as what specific transactions or internal states we look at when defining metrics. So future developers who are interested in this area can benefit from our learnings instead of starting from scratch.
The good news is that we have a mini “Aragon protocol explorer” for those who are interested in digging deep into the technical side:
If you want to see transactions of a specific DAO say “murziki”, here is a hack:
Don’t forget to use the “Filter” button next to the search box. It will make your life easier.
That’s about it. Any visualization which can’t be done from our UI at this moment, we will be gladly do it from our end in a timely manner. The price will remain the same for the rest of year if Aragon team enjoys continuing working with Scout team. We might switch to a usage based pricing model next year after learning more about the usage patterns of our current customers this year. If that happens, we will give Aragon team at least 3 months notice in advance.
