Factoshi Releases Updated Metrics Website

On February 18th, the Authority Node Operator Factoshi announced a new version of factoshi.io, the Factom community’s hub for metrics and statistics about the Factom blockchain.

This release includes an entirely new UI and UX to ensure that the tools available to the Factom ecosystem remain competitive with the best that the world of crypto has to offer. Additionally, the website has a number of new features, including:
  • Per block updates - the data you see will always reflect the current state of the blockchain within 10 seconds of the most recent block.
  • Live data - no need to refresh, all new data is streamed live to the site.
  • Redesigned charts - read latest network stats with more clarity.
  • Zoom controls - dig deeper into the data on pre-set time intervals.
  • Simple moving average - set your SMA period so you can get a clear picture of both short- and long-term trajectories.
  • New statistics - see the average TPS for each block over the last 24 hours, average efficiency, and more.
  • Explorer links - all addresses and chain IDs link directly to an explorer, so you can get specific information fast.
  • Grant pool calculator - get an estimate of how many FCT will be in the grant pool on a given date.
Moreover, you now have the opportunity to personalise the site:
  • Dark mode - surf at night without blinding yourself
  • Default zoom - set the default length of time that the charts cover.
Finally, if you need to grab metrics programmatically, you’re in luck. They implemented a new API that is friendly to outside users; you can grab all the data on the site with code!
