Can the Indexed dashboards be improved?
In community call #3: 17th of August 2021 there was a request for the community to help making Indexed Finance (indices & nirn vaults) more insightful by extending and building dashboards on Dune Analytics. Adding more metrics to the page of indexed itself was also discussed briefly but at the moment of writing this I can’t remember if this was planned or not.
This thread is to inquire both the team and the community to list key performance indicators (KPI’s, objective-critical metrics) and missing metrics (fancy graphs) so they can be found and created by developers or analysts easily.
But why a whole thread for something this obvious ?
For DeFi experienced developers this might seem pretty self-explanatory and missing KPI’s/metrics come up naturally. But it is tempting to assume (inexperienced) community members will build dashboards for their own information needs and a thread specific to KPI’s/metrics is a useful starting point for reference.
Where can I find the current dashboards
Right now there is the Indexed analytics Dashboard contributed by 0xBoxer (analyst for Dune Analytics) and maintained by Laurence (z dev) showing a variety of metrics. For those who are interested in dashboarding, 0xBoxer recently uploaded a youtube series where he explains how queries on Dune are written and how he built the dashboard on Indexed Finance.
Besides this, we can also see the position of Indexed in the Defi landscape on Token Terminal.
Consider ourselves lucky with the current dashboards and thanks to 0xBoxer’s youtube series Indexed Finance is a great project to start with.
There is also a dashboard to display the performance of Indexed KPI’s made by me.
@mlc2115 made a wonderful contribution with this dashboard visualizing metrics about our dividends. Which can be found here
How can I contribute
Indexed is becoming a very complicated DeFi service with sophisticated users. When it comes to defining metrics, users have different questions about their indices or vaults. For inspiration, you can look at the replies in this thread.
update (2021-08-20): Added a dashboard with just the KPI’s mentioned in the community call.
update(2021-10-06): Added dNdx dashboard
