We propose delivering a fully customizable on-chain growth analytics tool for Centrifuge Chain community with no-code and no-SQL knowledge requirements
High level objective
Web3 creators and protocol owners often struggle to access crucial growth insights, limiting their ability to understand user acquisition and conversion paths. Just like a mountaineer without a compass, navigating the complex world of web3 without the right analytics tool can leave web3 executives feeling lost and frustrated.
Centrifuge is a fast-growing infrastructure for decentralized finance of real world assets and its community deserves to have the best analytics tool designed for the Substrate framework. That’s why we built Tokenguard.
Our platform provides user data insights that make you better understand user acquisition, conversion paths, and on-chain behavior of borrowers and lenders. No more aimlessly jumping from one tool to another, hoping to stumble upon valuable insights.
For many years, the financial system was centralized, with large institutions and intermediaries controlling the flow of capital. This system was often opaque, exclusionary, and prone to corruption and abuse. Many individuals and small businesses were excluded from accessing financial services, and those who did often faced high fees and interest rates.
The emergence of blockchain technology has disrupted the traditional financial system by enabling decentralized, peer-to-peer transactions that bypass intermediaries and provide greater transparency and security. This has opened up new opportunities for individuals and businesses to access financial services and participate in the global economy.
The Centrifuge Protocol was created with this mission in mind, aiming to build a decentralized, transparent, and inclusive financial supply chain that empowers individuals and businesses. The Protocol leverages blockchain technology to enable peer-to-peer financing, allowing individuals and businesses to access capital without relying on traditional financial institutions.
Tokenguard’s on-chain data analytics solution is aligned with this mission by providing valuable insights into the Centrifuge blockchain. These insights can help users make more informed decisions about their finances, increase transparency and decentralization in the financial supply chain, and promote inclusivity in the financial system.
By leveraging blockchain technology and providing on-chain data analytics, Tokenguard’s solution supports the Centrifuge Protocol’s vision of a more accessible and decentralized financial system. It empowers users with the information they need to make informed decisions about their finances, minimizing risk and maximizing returns.
Description of Activity
We’re happy to deliver comprehensive on-chain data analytics tool for Centrifuge community, which would consist of (but not limited to) the following features:
- No-code and no-SQL dashboard with user data analytics delivering actionable insights to Centrifuge team, its community and all stakeholders.

Change or improvement
At Tokenguard, we understand that the financial supply chain can be complex and difficult to navigate. That’s why we’ve developed an on-chain data analytics solution that can provide valuable insights into the Centrifuge Chain(Substrate). Our solution can help users identify trends, potential risks, and other valuable information that can be used to improve the financial supply chain.
By using Tokenguard’s solution, Centrifuge Protocol users can gain access to a range of user on-chain insights, including:
-Asset Tokenization Metrics: The on-chain data allows for tracking the number of tokenized assets on the Centrifuge protocol. This metric provides an overview of the total assets that have been tokenized, providing insights into the growth and adoption of the platform
- Cumulative Assets Tokenized Grouped by Pool
- Total Assets Over Time
- Pool percentage
- Asset NFT Minted Monthly Totals
- Asset NFT Minted Grouped by Pool
-Ownership and Transfer Metrics: By analyzing the ownership records stored on-chain, you can determine the number of unique issuers for specific tokenized assets. This metric helps in understanding the distribution of ownership and the level of decentralization within the Centrifuge ecosystem. Additionally, tracking the transfer history of assets can provide insights into the liquidity and trading activity on the protocol
- Total number of unique issuers
- Number of new unique issuers over time
- Number of transfers (daily/monthly)
- Volume of transfers (daily/monthly)
- Average value of transfers (weekly/monthly)
-Financing Metrics: The on-chain data enables monitoring and analysis of financing arrangements tied to the tokenized assets. Metrics such as the total value of outstanding loans, interest rates, and repayment terms can be derived from the data. These metrics provide an understanding of the level of lending activity and the financial health of the Centrifuge ecosystem.
- Outstanding loans grouped by pool
- Total outstanding loans over time
- Interest rates by asset pools
- Repayment analysis grouped by borrowers
-Collateralization Metrics: By analyzing the collateralization data stored on-chain, metrics such as the total value of collateral locked in the system, collateral types, and their distribution can be derived. These metrics are crucial for assessing the risk profile and stability of the Centrifuge protocol.
- TVL over time
- Collateral types
- Collateral distribution
-Transaction Metrics: The on-chain transaction history provides insights into the transaction volume, frequency, and patterns within the Centrifuge ecosystem. Analyzing these metrics can help identify trends, user behavior, and the overall activity levels on the protocol.
- Total transaction volume over time
- Number of transactions over time
-Sources of lenders/borrowers: which allows to identify which exchanges lenders/borrowers are coming to Centrifuge from
-User behavior analysis: By analyzing users activity and their on-chain behavior metrics, such as daily and monthly active users, number of developers, total number of users, users segmentation (lenders/borrowers) can be derived. It’s crucial for understanding user flow and better ads targeting to grow the Centrifuge user base
- Daily and monthly active users
- Total number of users
- Number of developers over time
- User segmentation (lenders/borrowers)
-Off-chain metrics: Off-chain activities contribute to the growth of the Centrifuge protocol. The correlation between the growth of the social media community and the increase in on-chain activity allows you to streamline the creation of more effective marketing campaigns. At the same time, tracking activity on github and stack exchange provides more transparency to the community about Centrifuge’s development work and its growth.
- Social Media (Twitter, Discord, Telegram)
Tokenguard has the capability to offer any additional metrics or analytics that the community or core team deems valuable. We’d love to hear suggestions on what additional metrics would be valuable to Centrifuge.
