How Dune helps Polygon to illuminate community engagement and rapidly deliver on-chain insights
Amplifying Public Engagement: the Reddit Collectible Avatars dashboard
When Reddit launched its Polygon-based "Collectible Avatar" in July 2022, it made a significant impact. The success of the Reddit Avatars played a crucial role in onboarding more people into the Polygon ecosystem, contributing to growth and brand building. However, the lack of visibility into detailed stats like “Collectible Avatar Holders Distribution” made it challenging to measure the success of the launch and its contribution to the Polygon ecosystem.
The data team from Polygon Labs swiftly addressed this challenge by using Dune. They created an inclusive dashboard on Reddit Avatars within just hours. Dune's contract decoding functionality helped reduce the knowledge barrier on getting relevant information from a smart contract. Together with the existing queries and datasets made by the community, Dune enabled the team to make this quick turnaround possible.
“My turnaround for these dashboards is 75% faster thanks to Dune.” – Peter Liem, Data Analyst at Polygon Labs
The Reddit Avatars dashboard not only provided internal teams with fast access to launch data but also offered external communities the same visibility. This transparency fostered community engagement and led to citations from major news outlets and research institutions.
Accelerating Data Insights: Tracking Validator Rewards
Polygon Labs wanted to track the percentage of transaction fees going to validators. However, data required to perform this analysis was not readily available.
Dune provided data on priority fees for EVM chains, which wasn’t readily available anywhere else. The data team developed a query that Polygon Labs could easily access and integrate into their workflow.
The solution not only served an immediate need but also enhanced financial transparency within the organization. The team can now easily track payouts to validators.
Overall, Dune enabled Polygon Labs to achieve a 75% faster turnaround time on data insights, significantly accelerating their decision-making process.
