Milestone 1:Support XDC Smart Contracts for Analytics & Visualization

Website Integration Development

a.XDC network integration for smart contracts at registration page.

Image description

b.Integrate API to fetch XDC smart contracts to be displayed in autocomplete.

The below features will be available to XDC Dapps and ecosystem users after the integration:

  1. Sync XDC projects: Connect any XDC project by providing a subgraph GraphQL endpoint or by selecting smart contracts from autocomplete.
  2. Browse XDC projects dataset: Explore and browse XDC projects Dapp data in simple and intuitive tabular form.
  3. Write SQL Queries: Write SQL queries using an intuitive visual SQL editor on the XDC project dataset. Users can query, filter, join, and group by on the XDC projects dataset.
  4. Community Analytics: Community analytics can be done on the indexed XDC dataset.
  5. Create, Fork, and Edit Charts: Choose from more than dozens of visualization types to create the best charts. You can create, edit, and fork charts
  6. Create Dashboard: Using the drag and drop feature of dashboard builder, create and fork dashboards. Gather info from multiple sources into a single dashboard.
  7. hare Dashboard: Share dashboards on a URL anywhere you need. Export the charts in popular formats like CSV, XLS and JSON.
  8. Analytics on Multichain Data: Analyze & query multiple XDC projects data and build awesome charts & dashboards. Users can compare and monitor Dapp data of multiple networks at a single place.
  9. Collections / Folders: Use collections to organize your charts/dashboards and to decide who gets to see and edit things. Using collections you can make your charts/dashboards private or public.
  10. Advance Analytics: Do advanced analytics like funnel analysis, user retention analysis to monitor active users activity and take appropriate action.

Indexer Development

  • Implement an indexer to index XDC network data in an easy queryable schema format for analytics.
  • Store indexed data. Storage will depend on the volume and complexity of the data.
  • Implement transformations to Index XDC dApps data in an easily queryable format.
  • Define a data schema that defines the structure and format of the XDC network data being indexed. This schema will ensure consistency and ease of access to the data.
  • Implement the data schema.

1. Price Oracle

Price oracle data(token pricing details) for different networks is available here:
(As part of integration support XDC Ecosystem tokens pricing data)
The pricing data is available for download via CSV, excel, or JSON.


The API SDK empowers developers to seamlessly integrate XDC network data into Dapps, providing them with the essential tools to create innovative and engaging decentralized applications.

Utilizing this SDK, the XDC network and its community can access trending and popular analyses, thus enhancing the functionality and user experience of their Dapps.

3. Embedding of charts/dashboards

Charts and dashboards created on the DappLooker platform can be seamlessly embedded into your native environment.

This empowers you to infuse your valuable, data-driven insights, enriching your decision-making processes.

4. Documentation

Document a step-to-step guide to using XDC Ecosystem Analytics on DappLooker.
Publish a guide on DappLooker with supporting images.
Make Community announcements on social media and other channels.

Milestone 2:Creation of XDC Network dApp to be hosted on :

Dapp Development

  • Create as a complete ecosystem overview Dapp.
  • Design a great (XDC-themed) UI for the analytics Dapp.
  • Create 4 detailed interfaces for monitoring XDC Ecosystem, namely: Network Health Monitor, Network Performance Monitor, Token Analysis Monitor and Security & Compliance Monitor (details below)
  • Embed the 4 XDC Ecosystem Monitors on for the community, powered by Dapplooker.
  • For Reference NFTX Monitor Dapp: (
  • Launch

1. Network Health Monitor:

  • Best Block: The current best block number on the XinFin network.
  • Avg Transaction Rate: The transaction rate of the last block.
  • Avg Block Time: The average time it takes to mine a block.
  • Active Nodes: The number of active nodes out of the total nodes.
  • Gas Price: The current gas price in Wei.
  • Max Block Size: The maximum block size in gas.
  • Uptime: Total network uptime.
  • Block Time: Real-time monitoring of block generation.
  • Transactions Per Block: Number of transactions in the latest block.
  • Block Size (in Wei): Size of the latest block in Wei.
  • Block Propagation: Metrics related to block propagation.

2. XDC Network Performance Monitor

This dashboard would track the performance of the XDC blockchain, including metrics such as:

  • Transaction throughput
  • Transaction fees
  • Block time
  • Network uptime
  • Validator count
  • Node count
  • Node Status
  • Smart Contract Activity

This dashboard would be useful for XDC to monitor the health of its blockchain and ensure that it is performing as expected. It would also be useful for developers to assess the performance of the blockchain before deploying their applications.

(For reference MoonBeam Network dashboards:

3. XDC Token Analysis Monitor

Integrate and Index data of XDC Token and implement a detailed monitor for XDC Token Analytics and Key Metrics.

The goal is to provide insights into XDC Token, allowing the community and users to track the adoption and key metrics of the Token.

Metrics - Displays key metrics such as

  • Total number of transactions
  • Wallet addresses
  • Transaction volume
  • Price over Time
  • Market Cap over time
  • Token Holders
  • Other key metrics related to XDC Token

4. XDC Security and Compliance Monitor

This would give an overview of the security by giving insights about the following metrics

  • Security Events: Logs and alerts for potential security breaches.
  • Compliance Status: Monitors KYC compliance for masternodes.
  • Node Health: Displays the status of nodes to identify vulnerabilities.
  • Interoperability Status: Indicates the level of compatibility with other networks.

Infrastructure upgrade:

Upgrade and optimize infrastructure to support the successful integration of The XDC Network and Ecosystem with DappLooker. This will make sure the perfect scalable infrastructure is in place before integration.

APIs/Node Integration

  • Integrate APIs to fetch XDC network data for ecosystem analytics. This involves setting up a system to gather data from various sources on the XDC network for integration.
  • Collection of network data for the indexer. This involves collecting and cleaning the following data for the integration :
  • XDC Network Transactions
  • Metaverse Data
  • Validator Data
  • Co-Marketing & Operations

Co-market Dapp with the help of the XDC team and Foundation.

Thank you for the proposal and the breakdown of it. Are there any additional costs (monthly/yearly) after the 20K integration? What benefits have other chains seen after integration with your dapp? Besides being able to display data with a multitude of graphs, what are the benefits? This integration for 20K is great and the breakdown is good but the milestones do not have a timeline for execution. Will this integration take a 4-6 weeks or a year? Thank you in advance for your response.

This seems like a well thought out funding breakdown. While I am not a "back-end" guy, the SDK tool kit alone seems like a great addition. And we are expecting migrations, so the metrics functionality will keep prospective projects apprecaiting the analytics that XDC prides itself on. Both Milestones, 1 & 2, look very promising and value adding.
