Today we are releasing yet another Lisk tool, the Chainalysis Tool! The purpose of this tool is to shed further light on the Lisk blockchain itself in regards to the transactions that are taking place. It will allow any user to easily view various pieces of data, such as the number of transactions in a certain time frame, the number of active wallets, or even the amount of Lisk being sent to or from an exchange.

Demo Video

We haven’t had time to film this quite yet, but we will do so in the next day or two. Once done, we’ll put the link here 🙂

Chainalysis Block vs Lisk Block

At the top you’ll notice two block numbers, one labeled Chainalysis Block, the Other Lisk Block. Lisk Block is the current block the Lisk network is currently on. Chainalysis Block is the block number for which all of the data is referencing. In essence, this tool takes a snapshot of the blockchain and then uses it to handle all of its calculations. Therefore, there will always be a slight delay in the data. As it stands now, the tool is being updated around every 10 minutes or so, so it should never be very out of sync.

Data Ranges

There are a number of data ranges that are available to view. They are:

  • Last Hour
  • Last Day
  • Last Week
  • Last 30 Days
  • Last 60 Days
  • Last 90 Days
  • Last 360 Days
  • All

For the charts mentioned below, these data sets are broken down for what should make the most sense for that particular sense:

  • Last Hour: 5 minute intervals
  • Last Day: 1 Hour intervals
  • Last Week: 24 hour intervals
  • Last 30 Days: 24 hour intervals
  • Last 60 Days: 72 hour intervals
  • Last 90 Days: 72 hour intervals
  • Last 360 Days: 30 day intervals
  • All: 1/25th of entire Blockchain intervals

Number of Transactions

This section gives you the number of transactions within the chosen data set, as well as a breakdown by type:

  • Regular (type 0, or fund transactions)
  • Vote (type 3)
  • Delegate Registration (type 2)
  • 2nd Passphrase Registration: (type 1)
  • Other (type 4, 5, 6, & 7)

In the future, we may breakdown the transaction types we grouped together in the “other” category, but we’ll have to wait and see how these transactions are used in the future.

Amount of Lisk sent/received

This section gives you the amount of Lisk sent out in this data set, as well as whether it was going to or from an exchange or not.

NOTE: We are utilizing our own API to gather the Exchange addresses:

http://api.lisk.support/v1/addresses/exchanges

If we are missing any addresses, please let us know. We want to keep all of our tools as accurate as possible, and we need your help to do so!

Active/Inactive Wallets

This section simply distinguishes Active vs. Inactive wallets. For our purposes, an active wallet is any wallet that had at least 1 outgoing transaction within the chosen data set.

Forged & Fees

This section is pretty self explanatory. It lists the amount a Lisk forged within the given data range, as well as how much in fees were taken.

Top 100 Tables

Finally, we have the top 100 tables. There are a number of tables to choose from, including:

  • Number of Transactions in a Block
  • Amount of Lisk in a Block
  • Amount Forged in a Block
  • Amount of Lisk in a Transaction – All
  • Amount of Lisk in a Transaction – To Exchange
  • Amount of Lisk in a Transaction – From Exchange
  • Amount of Lisk in a Transaction – Non Exchange

In addition to viewing the data, clicking on any row will take you to that particular block/transaction in Lisk Explorer.

Future

We envision this tool to updated periodically with more data, such as more Top 100 tables. If you have any suggestions, please let us know!
