Proposal description

DashRadar development

The goal of this proposal is to fund the development and hosting of DashRadar, which is aiming to provide a comprehensive set of online tools for accessing, visualizing and analyzing the dash blockchain.

Current tools of dashradar.com include a block explorer, an interactive transaction graph visualizer, a collection of interactive charts and a data explorer where users can execute cypher queries against a neo4j graph database containing the dash blockchain.

Objectives
  • A new tool for analyzing the privacy of individual PrivateSend transactions
  • Implement address clustering a.k.a guestimated wallets feature
  • Implement most of the features from the TODO list

Schedule
3 months (May, June and July).

Budget
Proposal fee reimbursement: 5 Dash

Development and hosting: 50 Dash total

Total: 55 Dash

More info
  • If I manage to finish all of the objectives ahead of schedule, then I will continue developing new features based on user suggestions and my
    own ideas.

I think your project is THE cutting edge research in better understanding and visualizing how PrivateSend works. And that is only one of the potential uses for your tool/website. And you have already added several new features based on feedback from the community.

Again, this is an easy yes vote.

voting YES. As this assists with assessment of private send transactions, then great.

Update regarding the PrivateSend analysis tool: https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/evaluating-the-privacy-of-privatesend.32472/#post-186417

Please check the demo website from the dash.org forum post.

The ultimate goal of the PrivateSend analysis project is not only to measure the privacy of PrivateSend but also to improve the privacy of PrivateSend. One method to achieve this would be to add some basic analysis functionality in the Core client so that it would keep mixing until sufficient privacy is achieved (even past 8 rounds if necessary). Other methods could include modifying the mixing behaviour to prioritize mixing transactions with inputs from both create denominations transactions and other mixing transactions as well as modifying the input selection algorithm to prioritize combinations that achieve better privacy.

That would be great and also please incorporate selection of denominations by user.

Slightly off topic: I have no idea what I am looking at when I see the 'live' star-like red/green lines...the transaction visuals.

There should be a transaction icon in one end of the arrow and address icon in the other end.

Are you unable to see the icons? If so then please try using a different browser and report what browser is not working.

Ahh...this works much better on the Firefox browser over my Safari (I use a mac) browser.

In the previous proposal, the major objection was releasing the source code to the public as open source. Can you elaborate on your plans for the source code?

All the code can be found in my GitHub account https://github.com/Antti-Kaikkonen. That is also where I will continue to publish changes.

Currently, all of the 6 repositories are required to fully run the project locally. The process of setting everything up is currently quite tedious but I'm looking forward to make it easier. I'm not an expert with docker but I will look if it would be possible to create a docker image to automate the deployment.

Cool tool! Go watch this thing people. Quickly conveys to people, in a visual sense, why PrivateSend is really private. Tons of information conveyed by the visuals.
