A Sampling of What People Are Saying About TrueBlocks — May to August 2023

We were mentioned in an interesting article about Blockchain Data Pipelines by David Gasquez. The upshot: Many other libraries are closed source, but TrueBlocks is not.

Lefteris from Rotki says,

If we manage to perfect it [indexing]…and share the data between multiple users [as TrueBlocks does], then ‘web3’ may still have a chance…

Jamie from the Ethereum Foundation agrees and hints that indexing should have been in the node from the beginning. Lefteris laments the lack of funding…

TrueBlocks inspires people.

We give people a reason to run a node (again):

People understand what we’re trying to do, but, to be honest, it’s not easy. There’s more work to be done.

We’re getting our share of mentions:

  • The amazing Parama.eth has a dream. We can help! This tweet is pointing to a very important bit of work we helped with (linked below). In fact, our work inspired this work and is heavily referenced.

Here’s a discussion of why the UX (User Experience) for blockchains sucks and what might be done to improve it. We’re mentioned prominently.

Another mention of TrueBlocks and how it might help to improve the user experience in the blockchain space.

We’re not the only ones who think TrueBlocks should be part of the node (most likely optionally).
