We’re thrilled to announce that our Data Team at Parity Technologies has just created an interactive Annual Polkadot Ecosystem Data Report 2023. This report covers various aspects of Polkadot and is the first of its kind, marking a significant milestone in our journey to harness the power of data for the advancement of our dynamic ecosystem.
Our belief is steadfast: data is the bedrock of progress. By diving deep into the data of the Polkadot ecosystem, we aim to unveil its true potential and showcase its value to the world. Our mission revolves around deciphering the vast array of on-chain and off-chain data for the Polkadot ecosystem, turning them into insightful gems for our community.
Our adventure started with “DotLake,” a data warehouse we initially established for Parity’s in-house data requirements. Dotlake hosts the complete history of over 70+ Polkadot & Kusama chains and is continually growing. Now, we’ve expanded our horizon, aiming to accelerate the sharing of our discoveries and methodologies with the broader community.
This report is one of the ways of sharing these insights, looking back at the whole year behind us. The charts you see in the report are a part of a much larger collection we aim to share with the community, and are a product of diligent analysis and iteration over the past year.
It combines charts and metrics with succinct wiki-style descriptions for each covered area, aiming to educate the Polkadot-newbie readers about key aspects of the network and the ecosystem.
For newcomers, we recommend starting with section 2, “What is Polkadot.” For those with a more technical background, dive straight into the first graphs in section 3, “Shared Security of the Network.” All charts depict a full 2023 monthly or YTD view, with a cutoff date of December 1, 2023, unless stated otherwise.
We’re eager to hear your thoughts on this report and any data or metrics you’d like us to include in future editions. Please feel free to share your feedback and suggestions with us.
