Submission

I am delighted to submit a proposal for the creation and maintenance of the ecosystem metrics dashboard dashboard for the Pocket Network. As a former product manager at Coinbase and a data science intern at Meta, I bring a wealth of experience in creating and managing data-driven dashboards. At Coinbase, I developed several internal dashboards to measure asset addition performance, and at Meta, I developed dashboards for the Oculus app store ecosystem.

My team and I are well-versed in data analysis, data engineering, and data modeling, and we have a deep understanding of both on-chain and off-chain data. We are proficient in Airflow, Kafka, and Apache Superset.

Our proposal includes the following:

  1. Data Pipelines: We will establish reliable and easy-to-maintain data pipelines for all metrics provided by PNF, connecting these to an analytical database.
  2. Dashboard Creation: We will create an engaging, user-friendly dashboard, ideally as a sub-domain of pokt.network, showcasing all relevant metrics.
  3. Alerts, Tests, and Logs: We will set up all necessary alerts, tests, and logs to monitor the data pipeline and metrics.
  4. Maintenance and Updates: We will be available for updates and bug fixes for the dashboard and data pipelines, in line with community feedback and PNF’s instructions.
  5. Data Sources: We will utilize the Snapshot API, POKTscan API, CoinGecko API, and manually updated spreadsheets from PNF. We will also consider future data sources such as Discord, Discourse, and Twitter.

Roadmap:

  • Month 1: Establish data pipelines, begin dashboard creation
  • Month 2: Complete dashboard creation, set up alerts, tests, and logs
  • Month 3 onwards: Maintenance, updates, and bug fixes as needed

We are committed to delivering a high-quality product with attention to detail, empathy for the end-user, and high accountability. We are first principles thinkers who get things done.

Our proposed price for this project is 1,500,000 POKT. We believe this price reflects the complexity and importance of the project, as well as our expertise and dedication to delivering a top-quality product.

Thank you for considering our proposal. We look forward to the possibility of working with the Pocket Network community.

Thunderhead would be happy to take this on. Over the past 2.5 years, I along with the rest of the team have become intimately familiar with Pocket, its inner workings, and its success metrics through our various endeavors.

We have a wealth of experience building these types of dashboards. We recently built Hyperliquid Stats (Hyperliquid is an application specific L1 perp DEX), which visualizes the network’s protocol metrics like volume, unique users, and protocol vault PnL (a unique feature of HL). It also looks quite nice :slight_smile:. The backend also exposes latency/success metrics and we alert on those in grafana. Please see it here: https://hyperliquid.thunderhead.xyz.

In addition to this, we have built pokt.info, rpcmeter.io, pokt.watch. PoktInfo required parsing and indexing terabytes of data (error database, latency database, and the chain itself). RPCmeter highlights Pocket has a great solution compared to other RPC providers. PoktWatch indexes the entire chain into a postgres db. Through building these and fully focusing on the network for 2+ years, we have come to know Pocket Network in and out. We also have experience as node operators building https://thunderstake.io and https://thunderpokt.fi, peaking at $70m staked.

We understand good UX (please see our latest LST: stakedflip.fi), have great domain knowledge of Pocket, and a wealth of experience building these types of dashboards. We will work with PNF on writing up a spec to decide on optimal design/ux, technical architecture and metrics to display. We understand all of the necessary metrics given and know how to best display this to the community. We ask for $42k USD equivalent in POKT at time of project completion (~1.5m at current prices). The scope is not fully concrete so we cannot give an exact timeline but we estimate 3-6 weeks from starting the spec to full production delivery. I understand that future tweaks and additions will be necessary beyond intitial scope so our ask includes 2 weeks of work for modifications or additional features. Our ask also includes hosting. We will do additional tweaks/feature additions at slightly above cost ($70 per hour).

Thank you,
Addison and the Thunderhead Team

Pocket network custom dashboard proposal by TogetherCrew (RnDAO)

Introduction

Hey folks

We’ve tried to create a rather detailed proposal. Hopefully, this can prompt discussion on anything that we might have misunderstood and we can mover forward together :slight_smile:

Our proposal focuses on creating a custom dashboard project exclusively for Pocket Network. We are particularly intrigued by Pocket’s commitment to decentralization, enabling developers worldwide to access and utilize multiple blockchain networks seamlessly. Our mission at RnDAO is to Empower Humane Collaboration which we deem we can advance by contributing to Pocket Network’s mission of providing efficient, scalable, and decentralized blockchain solutions. This proposal outlines the specific business requirements and includes a high-level business analysis to ensure our dashboard project aligns with the Pocket Network community values and goals we also hold dear - namely transparency, inclusivity, collaboration, and adaptability and advancing towards a world where the most important digital infrastructure is governed by its users.

About Us

We, TogetherCrew and Microflow, are two teams part of RnDAO with a focus on enabling and empowering communities through data and transparency. We’re excited to develop and maintain this custom dashboard. Its main purpose is to visualize the requested metrics, providing valuable insights for the Pocket Network.

    Github: TjitsevdM · GitHub

Previous Work

Our team has decades of experience in data analytics. Our recent work includes community Health analyses for Aave, Aragon, Near (6 sub-communities), MetaGame, Celo, LexDAO, and more. And the creation of the plug-and-play live dashboard with Discord data togethercrew.com, used by Optimism, amongst others. We’re also official launch partners of MetricsDAO

Additionally, we’ve conducted extensive research to identify the most reliable and actionable indicators for community health (including a PhD in the topic of social network analysis and team performance and published framework on community health).




Dashboard Scope and Objectives

  • The dashboard will be open to the public, accessible on a subdomain in the Pocket network website
  • The dashboard aims to visualize composite metrics, open to the public and unstoppable.
  • This project is focusing on visualizing the data rather than data extraction and complex data analysis. The analysis will be limited to basic statistical analysis (as per the requested metrics) in this phase of the project.
  • Due to the dashboard being open to the public, authentication, and user access control level is not part of the scope of the project.
  • The target audience of this product is the Pocket Network community
  • The Dashboard must be easy to understand (we’ll collect community feedback about the UX and, if any during the first 3 weeks, incorporate it before finalizing the project. Any feedback after that relates to the terms of the Support agreement below).

Additional Benefits:

  • We also already have a Discord integration and are also working on a Discourse and Twitter integration for the TogetherCrew’s Dashboard (through a grant by Optimism Foundation and Web3 Foundation, respectively), functionalities which will be made available to Pocket Network too via the TogetherCrew Dashboard, should Pocket decide to deploy it. The initial scope of these integrations includes adding them as data sources to the TogetherCrew dashboard (see walkthrough: TogetherCrew overview - YouTube) and will be expanded over time. If Pocket wishes to integrate these data sources in the future separately from the TogetherCrew dashboard, the work can be provided at a significantly reduced cost thanks to the pre-existing infrastructure we’re already building or otherwise can integrate Pocket’s custom dashboard into their instance of the TogetherCrew dashboard (for clarity, both paths forward mentioned are optional and this proposal focuses on a separate, custom dashboard for Pocket).
  • Our current work also includes the creation of an AI-powered bot in partnership with Optimism. The bot analyzes public communication data, answers questions of users on demand (enabling them to gain context about the network easily and hence empowering them to participate more effectively in governance, protocol development, etc), and also scans violations to the code of conduct to alert moderators about cases of harassment and provides private recommendations to users about how to reword their messages in more effective and humane ways (e.g. NVC methodology). The work outlined below with Pocket Network would provide the foundation to include these functionalities in the future should it be desired by the Pocket DAO.

Data Sources

Excel files
There will be static Excel files that will be updated manually. Updating the Excel files automatically or through the dashboard is out of the scope of this project.

CoinGecko API
The Pocket network team is responsible for providing the CoinGecko API subscription. Only this API will be utilized to fetch market information.

Snapshot API
The dashboard will also support integration with Snapshot, bear in mind this integration is only to read and visualize data and the dashboard will not provide support for calling actions through Snapshot API.

POKTscan
The dashboard will utilize POKTscan to retrieve and visualize real-time network data.

Estimation

The project is expected to last for 10 weeks, including the outlined steps in the roadmap. The total budget of the project is POKT 979,941 as detailed in the breakdown provided in the efforts section.

Additionally, a monthly retainer for ongoing support is set at 970 USD per month including new metrics added monthly (see below the Support section for details about what’s included and payment). The initial quoted price includes two month of free support after the code is delivered.

  • Any small UX changes to the dashboard such as color change, component rearrangement, wording, annotations, and explanations, etc.
  • Small changes to metric logic such as parameters and thresholds, filters, etc.
  • Up to one new simple metric per month (simple algorithm, common visualization types, and existing data sources)
  • Site Reliability
  • Security and site maintenance
  • Changes to the underlying APIs

This is a long-term support agreement, and we plan our resources in a way that we always have unallocated resources to devote to your project on your demand. Doing so, helps us to deal with any queries from your side with urgent priority.

Our support scope does not cover new work, such as adding new data sources or complex new charts, as it falls outside the scope of our standard support. However, we are fully committed to addressing any bugs or issues, regardless of their size or complexity, if they are caused by our product.

Additionally, we understand the importance of handling any side effects resulting from changes in underlying data sources or changes to the metrics, dashboard, or charts. Our team is dedicated to resolving such issues promptly, providing they can be dealt with in less than 2 days of work. Larger tasks are considered new work, and we can sustain our current pricing for all of 2023 (see budget breakdown above for an example) and adjust based on inflation for 2024.

Customer satisfaction is crucial to us, and we maintain a flexible mindset when it comes to support. Our goal is to bring as much value to our customers as possible.

For any new feature or work going forward, we offer a free business call to discuss your needs and requirements, and we will provide an official quote based on your project’s scope. We commit to providing competitive pricing.

If you have any new work requirements, we also offer a time and material option. Based on the indicated hourly rates. This offer comprises the hourly rates, a master service agreement indicating the outline and structure of our work, and a service agreement indicating the general scope of the work which will be provided to you upon your request.

Payment terms & Market Fluctuations

We’re committed to working with Pocket and, as such, are happy to take some market risk together with the Pocket Network and align incentives. However, should the price of Pocket drop more than 15%, we’ll have to reassess the viability of the project.

The Support is offered as a complimentary item to the above and is priced in USD for the convenience of both parties. We’re happy to receive payment in POKT provided normal market conditions.

Closing thoughts

Our primary focus is to ensure a smooth and satisfactory experience for the Pocket Network in working with us. If you have any concerns or need assistance, we are always here to help and provide top-notch quality work. Equally, should any part of this proposal prove unviable or otherwise you wish to discuss, we’re very happy to engage and explore ways to make this relationship the most fruitful possible.
We’re excited to become contributors to Pocket and hope this is the beginning of many more collaborations.

Nodefleet would be honored to deliver this proposal. I personally been working with Pocket since 2018 by running internal protocol and blockchain infra and since 2022 we started Nodefleet and in around 4 months we become the 3rd top largest node runner and top in most earned pocket by staking around ~140m pocket on nodefleet.org without summing up our test domains such as blackholestake.io, whiteholestake.io, lightspeedstake.io among others. Until today only Nodefleet.org currently is sitting at ~68m while also running infra for other projects. We are compromised with the success of pocket since it also will mean our success.

Additionally to our experience running high scalable infrastructure and nodes, we also have experience working with analytics dashboards for pocket internal projects and others with wide experience on indexing tooling, backend development, and heavy use cases on postgres, hadoop, among other open source services and cloud solutions for analytics.

Previous work

We as a team also have a good range of full stack system with heavy analytics tasks projects such as:

Nodefleet staking dashboard
Dashboard staking dashboard solution for our clients so they can track their POKT rewards per account/node/chain and also filtered by day/week/month.

https://beta.dashboard.nodefleet.org/dashboard/
Demo account:
nodes@nodefleet.net
Hello123@

Berachain Explorer
Hybrid blockchain explorer (EVM/IBC) for Berachain protocol.

It contains a custom indexer on top of the EVM/IBC Devnet Berachain node. Right now it’s currently in beta.

DyDx testnet staking
We are part of the testnet validator set on DyDx

Additional features and benefits involved

Due to Nodefleet philosophy and in order to empower the community we are planning to release this project completely open source, from the frontend , to the backend and infrastructure tooling.

In order to make the data more open, we are going to provide an open API (with their own security restrictions to avoid service overload) so the same information that feeds our charts can be queried outside of our systems.

Also, we’ll be including monitoring/alarms on a custom discord channel added to the pocket.network official discord and support engineer hours monthly for any charts and/or problem solving issue that needs our attention.

Estimation and costs

Project development is expected to be completed in around 9-12 weeks (max) depending on the final requeriments and charts needed. The total budget for the project is 1,500,000 POKT and a 1,200 USD monthly cost which includes:

→ Hardware costs
→ Open source code and issue solving/maintenance and software upgrades
→ Monitoring/Alarms systems
→ Engineer/Support hours for small changes/features (1-4 hours engineer hours)

Roadmap

Requirements and UI/UX design process (1-4 week)

  • Have meetings with the Pocket Network and shareholder team to determine final charts, features and requirements of the system
  • Share all access and sources needed to deliver the project
  • Create and validate UX wireframe design with Pocket Network staff and selected community members (if required)
  • Create and validate final design and run full UX process to validate final design with Pocket Network staff and selected community members (if required)
  • Deliver final design on Figma with UX study for the community

Frontend (4-8 Week)

  • Integration with the backend and other source systems
  • Creation of charts and frontends proposed in the UI/UX design

Backend (4-8 Week)

  • Hub for integrating various data source modules
  • Blockchain data indexing

Infrastructure (8-12 Week)

  • Benchmarking and load tests facing production scenarios
  • Provide high availability by adding additional infrastructure for production usage
  • Automatic healing systems and monitoring dashboards with alarms around all the system

QA (10-12 Week)

  • Nodefleet internal team full testing
  • Release beta version for community and Pocket Network staff for testing
  • Public Release

Hey friends, wow. Calm down with all these great submissions. Couple of these teams I hope win just to have them join our ecosystem, not gonna lie. Some of you know me (cryptonode.tools, hyper-critical top performing node runner, not one to embellish words), but some of you might not know I’m about 1/3 of the way through a masters in analytics at Georgia Tech (though I’ve basically lost motivation to continue). Pleasantries aside, I’d be happy to build this for 500k pokt, I reckon it would take me roughly 2-3 months to complete if I did it all myself. I would use a theme somewhat similar to poktscan frontend using nextjs and mui components, and build the backend in python with faust probably and whatever else I might need hosted on my own infra. Additional features I would be flexible to negotiate, and I would be willing to maintain the completed dashboard for 20k pokt/month, just to offset infra and api costs (coingecko ain’t free).

DECISION

Thanks to everyone who submitted. The standard was incredibly high across the board. And it’s genuinely painful not to be able to give some work out to everyone—a good problem to have. :sweat_smile:

The three factors we used to determine the winning submission were:

  1. Speed
  2. Cost
  3. Team-project-fit

While there was a reasonable variance in cost and timelines across each submission, it was apparent that each team had the requisite skills and capabilities to deliver on the project’s goals. Ultimately, it came down to the knowledge and experience of the winning team with building and designing metrics dashboards for web3 communities. And that little bit “extra” we felt we could gain from working with the chosen team.

Consequently, we decided to go with @danielo and the team from TogetherCrew. We believe that TogetherCrews’s team is the best fit for fulfilling our goal of developing the best community metrics dashboard in Web3. TogetherCrew / RN DAO has an impressive background in working with communities from a research-focused first principles approach, and the fact that they already have live integrations with Discord and soon with Discourse and Twitter was an important unique value-add.

We are really excited to have TogetherCrew partner with us and the community on this project :handshake:

Note that we will require the POKT bid for the work as is. And will not be able to give any downside protection for RN DAO (or anyone else in any POP).

Thanks again for everyone’s input, and we look forward to continuing harnessing the power of the community with more POPs and Sockets soon.
