Calling all dungeon masters. With over 2000+ participants and hundreds of submissions, Dungeons & Data - 1inch Network has come to an end and what an amazing few weeks it has been engaging and empowering a community of ‘Citizen Data Scientists’ around the world! We at Covalent are appreciative of the opportunity to host this leading blockchain data science campaign with the most efficient DeFi aggregator in 1inch Network.
Blockchain technologies can change the world, but this potential is left unfulfilled if the data is not accessible. Despite the proliferation of digital assets on the blockchain, granular and historical blockchain data is impossible to access by anyone but the most sophisticated and technically talented. Covalent’s vision is to empower the pioneers of tomorrow by providing the richest and most robust data infrastructure for the entire blockchain ecosystem through a single, unified API which currently powers 200+ projects across 9 different blockchains.
The end goal of the Dungeons & Data challenges is to transform blockchain data into meaningful insights and action. In particular, the top-tier ‘Data Barbarian’ challenges involved detailed analysis of the 1inch Network Liquidity Protocol, Chi Gas Token and the 1inch v3 network assets and the results far exceeded our expectations! The Covalent API also made an impression with one analyst saying:
“ Extremely developer friendly; Well organised API docs; Able to query across a large number of networks and tokens; Could not ask for anything better
Outlined below are the winning submissions for the Data Barbarian challenges all powered by the Covalent API. We encourage you to view and play around with the projects. The links are live!
The full list of winners and the prize amounts can be found here.
So without further ado, let’s announce the winners!
1inch Network Explorer by Akbar Idria
This is a dashboard displaying 1inch Network aggregator facts with the app also providing an in-depth analysis on the Chi gas token. To achieve this, the ‘Get Log Event’ endpoint was used to get
swap events in 1inch V3 and also to get to get
transfer event. Akbar then used the ‘Get a transaction’ endpoint to get spent gas amounts in USD.
1inch Chi Gas Token Explorer by Corina Pascu and Samer Haidar
This is a web application that performs Chi gas token data analysis and provides data visualizations, such as:
- Total amounts of Chi that have been minted, burned and transferred.
- Total number of Chi token holders;
- Charts representing minted, burned, and transferred Chi in order to see the relationship between them on a monthly/weekly/daily basis;
- Unique users that minted, burned and transferred Chi.
- Rich list of Chi gas token holders and wallet balances.
1inch Swap Analyzer by Quentin Gosset
This is a dashboard built to demonstrate the 1inch v3 Aggregator facts and the Liquidity protocol. You can switch networks via the small icon "BSC / ETH". Concerning the use of the Covalent API, the API is used to return responses in NodeJs. Once the general JSON of the statistics is created, a cron task comes to take the file and inject it into a database for faster access to the information.
1inch Learning & Stats Dashboard by Aurelien Foucault
This app is designed to serve as a 1inch learning hub where you have articles, tutorials, infographics, data visualizations and so on, all with regard to 1inch. The Covalent API is used to retrieve all of the data of the 1inch v3 network.
1inch Fact Sheet by @DrHamkah
Thank you to each participate and congratulations again to all the hackers and winners!
1inch Network is a distributed network for decentralized protocols enabling the most lucrative, fastest and protected operations in DeFi. The 1inch Network consists of a best-in-class aggregation protocol, a next generation liquidity protocol, and a DAO that governs the key protocol parameters. By swapping tokens on 1inch, users get access to the highest value of liquidity available. 1inch is also known as one of the most secure solutions on the market, which is proven by the results of recent security audits.
