Proposal details

Project Name

GetBlock Explorer for IoTeX

Project Type

Explorer

Proposal Description

GetBlock Cross-chain Explorer for IoTex is a user-friendly blockchain explorer in a smooth app-like interface. The basic functionality will include public API for developers and cross-chain transactions display.
Our explorer will provide on-chain data insights such as transactions, blocks, nodes, accounts and analytical dashboard. However, core functionalities also include public API development along with cross-chain functionality. Moreover, our explorer seeks to improve the design side as well.
We believe it is important to foster ties between projects in the Web3 space as well as to grow the decentralized ecosystem of apps and tools.That is why we aim at building a user-friendly blockchain explorer in an app-like modern interface. We want to build an easy-to understand tool fit for both newbies and crypto-savvy individuals.
At the moment we’re focused on building for EVM-compatible chains like IoTex, and our experience in such development allows us to significantly reduce time and costs to release a product.
We have already deployed explorers. GetBlock Explorer team is a grantee of NEAR Foundation (twice), Harmony Protocol and Flow.

Will wallet history be exportable in CSV format, compatible with major tax reporting software, such as Koinly? This would be a key feature for me.

Hi! Thanks for your question.
This feature is not included in basic functionality as is, however, if grant awarded we could totally discuss it and add it to the list:) The interests and needs of the community are our priority, and this idea is really handy I must say!

Thanks for your comment! Good to hear you liked it :innocent:

Total fund request is 100k?. the facilities i personal look for is like moralis api with nudget pack and with all the function. What are the additional functionality you guys can provide us.

Nope. The basic functionality (cross-chain transactions + public dev API included) is $23,000. Then, there are options to expand: if adding up FT/FT detalization it is +$10,000. If adding further the charts and stats dashboard it’s +$8,000. So even if going for the whole list of things we can implement, the max. requirement will be $41,000.
However, yet again, the basic functionality (which is already pretty wholesome) is $23,000.

Being able to integrate with the TradFi world would certainly facilitate more widespread adoption.
