gm DappRadar fam and Web3 explorers,
Every month we give you, our DAO community, insights in the latest developments from the DappRadar team. This is our first effort in becoming more transparent as we open up our services and organization to the community in the weeks, months and years to come.
This monthly newsletter is also meant to receive feedback from you, so please feel free to comment on this post and let yourself be heard. We are stronger together and thus encourage everyone to be engaged in this vibrant community’s decision-making processes and overall governance.
At the moment we are revamping our Discord in order to streamline communication and improve interaction. We highly recommend you to join and participate.
When it comes to the RADAR token, in January we extended the SushiSwap liquidity rewards. While the ApeSwap Treasury Bills campaign also gave a boost to RADAR adoption on BNB Chain. We strongly advise you to check out the RADAR Staking page, and dive into various ways to participate in the RADAR token ecosystem. What’s interesting about the ApeSwap Treasury Bills, is that these create protocol-owned liquidity. This is a type of bonding that’s considered way better than yield farming. Read more about that thought process here.
We’re not only working on RADAR liquidity, but we’re also paving the way for an updated DappRadar roadmap. This would include the DappRadar platform, the DappRadar DAO and of course the RADAR token. Stay tuned for more on this topic somewhere this quarter.
However, we can already tell you that the RADAR token will not only affect PRO, but will connect much deeper into our product. We’re working on integrating it with our Quests, API product, and more.
January proved to be a very fruitful month, as also a wide range of media seem to slowly understand the power of decentralized applications. As crypto prices go up, media interest in DappRadar increases. In January we’ve been mentioned 2,096 times by all kinds of media.
However, among the most prominent media Forbes, Bloomberg, Fortune and Yahoo! Finance covered us. While crypto media such as CoinTelegraph, CryptoSlate, and Decrypt also mentioned us in their reporting.
- Forbes - Six Numbers That Defined Cryptos Dismal 2022
- Forbes - CryptoPunk Mania: The Top 10 NFT Collections of 2022
- Cointelegraph - NFT Sales Topped 101 Million in 2022 - DappRadar Report
- Decrypt - NFT Sales Jump 38% in January as Bored Apes Drive Trading Surge
While some media use DappRadar data loosely, most of the media attention comes from our monthly reports. This month we’ve published the following reports:
- New Dapps Report: Blur NFT Trading Volume Spikes
- Blockchain and Dapp Adoption Report 2022
- Flow Blockchain Ecosystem Performance Analysis 2022
- DappRadar x BGA Games Report 2022 Overview
We highly recommend reading the BGA Games Report 2022 and the Blockchain and Dapp Adoption Report 2022. These reports will supercharge your fundamental understanding of the blockchain space.
This month the DappRadar team has made some major updates to the API. The API now comes with dapp descriptions, while machine-learning valuations for various NFT collections have been added to as an endpoint as well. You heard right, we’ve been integrating AI before it was cool.
Furthermore, one of the more technical features of our dapp product pages has made a comeback. You can now find all the smart contracts for each of your dapps on the dapp page. However, a regular user has very limited access. You need to be a PRO user in order to obtain all the smart contract information from every dapp.
Simply go to the About tab on the product page, and you will find the smart contracts listed in the corresponding section. For example, Uniswap V3 has a total of 20,057 contracts listed across every blockchain. However, through the blockchain filter you’re able to only get the contracts of a specific blockchain - another incredibly helpful DappRadar feature.
In January developers submitted 2,907 dapps to DappRadar, and we blocked a total of 140 dapps. We expect to ramp up these numbers in the months to come.
At the same time our machine-learning team has added various NFT collections to the value estimations. Our AI now also estimates the value of for example:
- Sappy Seals
- Digidaigaku Heroes & more
We also expanded our DeFi tracking on the Tezos blockchain to 16 DeFi dapps, which now includes Smartlink, Vortex, Yupanda, Juster and cTez. As a result, DappRadar now offers the most holistic overview of DeFi on Tezos.
In January we hade various marketing activities in an effort to broaden the reach of our community. We did giveaways with both Star Atlas and Tiny Worlds, and AMA events with Alchemy Labs, LandVault and various Key Opinion Leaders from the gaming space.
In addition, our Head of DAO Nathan Vandy attended the Frankfurt Binance Event and got to meet various RADAR investors, ecosystem partners and dapp developers.
