[Grant application] ICON Vote Monitor


#1

1. Title

[Grant application] ICON Vote Monitor

2. Project Category

Development - Developer support and product ideas - wallets, block explorers, dapps, developer documentation, etc.

3. Project Description

In 2020 we commit to building a Voting Monitor that will help track voting and all ICON accounts activity on the ICON network by daily breaks or snapshots. Its functionality will encompass:

  • Monitoring of voting accounts, a feature that targets P-Reps primarily;
  • Basic historical information about P-Reps and ICON accounts;
  • Visualization of voting patterns and changes in ranks among all P-Reps.
  • Track voting activity regarding P-Reps - Voting Analytics Hourly / Daily / Weekly / Monthly (how many votes they received/lost, how many voters they have/lost)
  • Check voters of any P-Rep, their balance, voting history.
  • Provide charts and graphs showing a historical change of votes and change in top-22 and other P-reps over a period of time.
  • Provides the following information about accounts: Address, total balance, P-Reps voted for (with a hash), amount of votes, voting since, previous votes with duration, vote changes
  • Provides the following information about a P-Rep: Total votes, last updated, balance, productivity/uptime, governance votes, voters (with the amount voted)
  • Delegate changes timeline for any ICON account

ICON Vote Monitor will consist of such pages:

Index Page (P-Reps page)
P-Rep page
Accounts list page
Account page
Voting periodic page
Icon P-Rep Rankings page

The project manager responsible chooses specialists to undertake the project. According to a preliminary estimate, the team will be consist of a Project manager, Backend and Frontend developers, UX designer, Devops and Manual Tester.

This looks like a nice project that #10 team can easily cover from P-Rep rewards :+1:


#3

Thanks to ICON grant campaign we can even create more products for the ecosystem this year!


#4

Isn’t the amount you make from running a node enough to build it?


#5

Hello,

This proposal is applied to the ICON Community Grant program. ICON Foundation is going to review this proposal and leave the Review Result Comments on this post. Thanks.


#6

A lot of what is proposed here has already been built - http://icon-stats.ibriz.ai/


#7

Hello, all that we plan to create for the ecosystem during 2020 costs more than we have as a P-rep. On the one hand - development, infrastructure running, and team support, on the other hand - a win-win situation for all P-rep as we are and the ICON ecosystem.


#8

Hello, thank you for your comment)

Before the creation of this proposal, we made a research on all similar projects and unfortunately we don’t find any useful and convenient tools like this.

Our project will have many more options and features that you can not find at the market right now. An example that you share - good one but it is not enough for such a big community like Icon.

Our Parser can grab and then show much more info than any other project, we have our experience that we gained in development in the blockchain sphere during the last 4 years and we know how to create the best solution for users.

Hello.

I’d just like to point out that Block42 is already working on a voting monitor (called whale watcher at the moment but that might change). It will visualize the vote distributions, so you’ll be able to bring up how many wallets are voting for a certain P-rep and for how many P-reps a wallet is currently voting as well as the history of the voting. Using a Sankey diagram it will also show how the votes between P-reps were transferred. In January the first version of the application will be reviewed and we hope to have it up and running in February.
If you would need any more information to see if your application is different enough let me know you can always contact me

Thank you for your suggestion.

We have reviewed the explanation and screens of your project and now can say that our projects are not quite similar. We can even say that they are different. We also show account delegating history, but in this case, it’s just one of the options.

ICON Vote Monitor will have more features for showing transparency between other P-Rep or any account. By the way, all the details, we explained above.
