The Chainlink Community Grant Program provides financial resources to the many development teams and researchers building a more functional and accessible Chainlink Network. We encourage talented individual developers and development teams to apply to the grant program, or if you are a researcher and want to collaborate, contact us.
We are glad to announce that Anyblock Analytics, a German-based infrastructure provider and development shop for blockchain-based solutions, has been selected as a recipient of the Chainlink Community Grant Program. Anyblock Analytics is receiving a grant to enhance the tools available to Chainlink node operators, particularly around gathering key blockchain metrics and making that data available within easily accessible interfaces. Chainlink nodes can then leverage that data to better manage their day-to-day operations and administrative overhead. The end result is cheaper, more efficient processes for Chainlink node operators, while end-users receive more secure and reliable oracle services.
The grant will go towards developing out several functionalities for Chainlink nodes, including:
- Build a Chainlink node operator dashboard that will source and display useful metrics to the node operators, such as predicted gas usage based on previous responses made on-chain, aggregated earnings, average requests / transactions per hour, and other important datasets.
- Create CSV export functions for keeping track of earnings and expenditures, allowing node operators to easily manage the finance and budgeting side of their node operations.
- Enable one-click management of earned LINK in Flux Monitor Contracts, providing node operators with a way to easily interact with flux monitor jobs by simply pushing a button that efficiently retrieves the fees earned by them in the Flux Monitor address.
Anyblock Analytics is a German blockchain solutions provider offering professional infrastructure services and all on-chain data of 22+ Ethereum- and Bitcoin-based networks via one consolidated API. Users can leverage the reliable RPC endpoints to get load-balanced access to the different blockchains, eliminating the need for every project to setup, maintain and operate their own node.
Included in their SaaS services is also the Anyblock alerting functionality which enables the flexible monitoring of any activities happening on-chain and triggering notifications and workflows based on certain events. And for historic data access and lightning-fast querying, Anyblock indexes and enriches all data to a human-readable format so they can be searched in real-time using SQL and Elasticsearch DSL. They also build a variety of interactive dashboards, which make it easy for entities to visualize their KPIs and gain actionable insights.
Anyblock Analytics already has extensive experience with the Chainlink Network, having successfully run a security reviewed Chainlink node that supplies price data to the Chainlink Price Feeds for nearly a year and half. Combining both their experience with the Chainlink Network and their proven capabilities in creating blockchain data dashboards and tools, we believe Anyblock Analytics makes for a great candidate to receive a community grant as a means of further streamlining the operations of node operators using sound data insights.
"We're thrilled to be awarded a Chainlink Community grant to make it even easier for Chainlink node operators to provide secure and reliable oracle services across a variety of blockchains,” stated Peter Eulberg, CEO of Anyblock Analytics. “Through the Chainlink grant, we can now build out a whole suite of tools for node operators, such as a dashboard that closely monitors external metrics that affect node operations, CSV export functions to help node operators better track their finances, and one-click management of their earned LINK to simplify how nodes interact with Flux Monitor Contracts."
Through the Chainlink Community Grants program, we look forward to continuing to empower more and more Chainlink ecosystem teams who are building key tools and infrastructure that accelerate the development of universally connected smart contracts and secure oracle node infrastructure. We will continue supporting the community as a key driver of Chainlink’s rapid growth, because only together can we make universally connected smart contracts into the dominant form of digital agreement.
